Default Re: 180.* graphical corruption and freezes system

Hi dk7073 and welcome to the club. :-)

Unfortunately you are not gonna like the following: there is not much you can do at this point. This bug has been around for at least all 180.xx releases and there is no fix or workaround yet. You can try to downgrade to 177.82 which could at least fix that issue for you at expense of degraded performance especially with KDE4. If you stay with 180.xx, you can try to disable the xorg composite extension and stay away from OpenGL apps because all of this seems to further the occurrence of the freeze. But of you follow those advise, you will still hit the garbled screen and system freeze with the 180.xx drivers, no matter what. I had two days in a row where I could work without any trouble (w/ 180.25) and on the third day, I hit the bug twice.

Sorry...

[UPDATE]
Your nv_log_messages.txt looks quite interesting. You also got the same NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 6, PE0001 msgs but your crash report looks more interesting. That could be useful for the devs I hope.

Best regards,
matthias.

Just want to say that as of .27 I haven't had the screen corruption problem. I know this isn't comforting to everyone who still has it, but it is progress - hopefully further releases will continue to improve the situation.

I think 180.27 did it for me. Still good after a day!

Hi.

@devsk: Don't get your hopes up too soon because I also had two days straight without any crashes. This bug is definitively not fixed. And I guess that some people are currently not hitting it, is either pure luck or there were bitten by a different bug than this one which actually had been fixed with .25 or .27.

@all: I had 3 crashes yesterday, all produced the same Xid messages like earlier. Maybe we should start getting more structured here to help the devs figure out what is affected and what is not. Something like the following...

Card / GPU Core / MEM: Palit 9800 GTX+ / G92b / 512 MiB
CPU / Motherboard chipset: Intel Core2Duo E8400 / X45
PCIe or AGP: PCIe.
Overclocked?: Core slightly to 745 MHz (by the manufacturer)
Linux System (incl. 32/64 Bit): Up2Date Gentoo (64bit).
Kernels tested: 2.6.28-2.6.28.3
Drivers tested: 180.22-180.27
Xorg Server Versions tested: 1.5.3, 1.5.99.901, 1.5.99.902
Non-Default Driver (kernel module/Xorg) Options: MSI / UseEvents
Composite Extension?: Disabled. (seems to make little difference, nevertheless)
Screen corruption / System Freeze / Both combined: Yes / Yes / Yes.
Kernel msgs: Usually NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 6, PE0001, sometimes NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 6, PE0003, a few times both.
Notes on how to trigger the bug: Run a system intensive background task and use OpenGL in the foreground... this usually makes it easier to hit this bug.

If any one wants to add more, please do. I just hope the devs come up with something soon or I will sell this card and see what else I buy. I want to reliably work with this machine... and this is totally impossible at the moment.

Best regards,
matthias.

Hi.

Another crash. This line made it to the syslog which exactly appeared several crashes ago:

Code:
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0001 00000000 0000502d 00000100 00000000 00000001
Best regards,

8600M GT, c2duo, with .27 I get corruption that lasts, can start as early as the first 5-10 min of boottime. sometimes more sometimes less (see attachment, seems to affect just GTK apps display.)

syslog says: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0001 00000000 0000502d 0000060c 0000033b 00000100

bug report also attached.

*sigh*

Default Re: 180.* graphical corruption and freezes system

Hi, all. Just registered to make this very complaint. I read just until about page 9 and the last one to be sure that I've not missed some solution.

So, to the facts so far: not running laptop here, but a recently acquired intel q6600, 2 GB + GeForce 8600 GT desktop. Installed Ubuntu from a CD I had hanging was my system from previous machine -- a P4 2.66 1GB + an nvidia FX card -- then upgraded to 8.04, the latest LTS. Installed the distribution recommended nvidia driver 169.12. Yes, even it *features* this same bug being discussed here. 169.12!!

Steps to reproduce it: install Ubuntu or any of the other aforementioned distros, use the option for Xv/direct rendering in video players to play videos or use any opengl app and sooner or later it'll happen. It doesn't happen with videos to me anymore because I turned off such option. Which obviously sucks because it means I'm not using my card to the extend I have the right to.

But, see, I'm a huge fan of Blender and am truly mad at not being able to properly use it. It's not just because of the eventual screen corruption as seen in the screens here: the opengl viewport shows 3D models full of glitches, like as if the polygons are not perfectly "glued" together, you can see individual edges flickering throughout the model as you rotate or move the camera about it. It sucks! If I were into gaming, I would be much more eloquent here.

I did not have any of these problems with the previous Ubuntu and am considering installing it over. I just hope the driver did not cause any real damage to the card as some seemed to suggest...

If this issue is not solved and NVidia does not take a position, I'm also considering dumping this card and going for an Intel solution next.

Default Re: 180.* graphical corruption and freezes system

hi all, i would like to give my 2 cent on this, i think the problem is something with the new xorg and nvidia, i was getting the graphical corruption on: Debian 5.0 Lenny, Fedora 8 and 9, with any driver 173.xx and up. I use my computer for 3d(Maya) but now i installed Fedora Core 5!, yes , Fedora Core 5!!!!!!! and no graphical corruption with fedora core 5! yes i know is to old, but thats why i think the problem is with the newest xorg server and the newest nvidia drivers. im using a Dell Precision M90(Quadro FX 3500m) Laptop, 4 GB of ram, i was running and Quadro fx 1500m when i start to get the corruption change the card to a 3500m im the problem disappear for some time but know everything get as bad as with the old card, and installed Fedora Core 5, and everything work like a charm, not using the lastes driver because another issue, but not the graphical corruption, have like a week with fedora core 5 24/7 up and running using Maya 2009, and everything work perfect... i would like to back to debian Lenny, but need to nvidia resolve the issue. Sorry for my bad english is not my foreing language!... .... Byee!!!!!!....

as a follow up to my previous post, I can reproduce the instantiation of corruption every time by clicking "View Source" in Firefox for any webpage...

I have also attached a photograph of my screen after the crash and a portion of my /var/log/messages file that contains the kernel messages that were emitted during this event.

When the crash occurred, the mouse and keyboard were dead. I attempted to login via a remote machine and had limited success. I was able to login but the system was extremely slow to respond and I was unable to issue a reboot command. I had to cycle power with the power button to recover.

Any ideas?
dk7073:

I have been having the EXACT same problem, and I am also running a fresh install of Fedora Core 10 x86_64 on a brand new computer running an EVGA 9800 GTX+ video card. The screenshot that you posted looks *exactly* like what I have gotten now twice after enabling compiz-fusion after about 8-12 hours each time... so at least I know it's not my video card now!

Here's what I'm running for drivers:

[mother~] rpm -qa | grep nvidia

kmod-nvidia-180.25-1.fc10.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-180.25-1.fc10.x86_64
kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.12-170.2.5.fc10.x86_64-180.25-1.fc10.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-180.25-1.fc10.x86_64

I'll keep searching and let you know if I find anything, and I'll keep checking back.

Thanks--
Nick

EDIT: Just hit the problem again, and decided to look at it more closely as it might help the devs. I was scrolling up in a Firefox window using the mouse wheel, and bam.

Here's the relevant syslog:

Feb 5 17:49:33 localhost ntpd[2334]: kernel time sync status change 0001
Feb 5 18:52:01 localhost kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 6, PE0001

Feb 5 18:56:09 localhost kernel: imklog 3.21.9, log source = /proc/kmsg started.

I've also attached a screenshot and the nvidia bug report that I created afterwards.

Hope this helps... it's really frustrating. Thankfully I had all my code saved, but had I not, I would have been pretty irritated.

Default Re: 180.* graphical corruption and freezes system

Just hit the bug again, this time lost some work. (Luckily, I think my code was wrong anyways so I would have had to start over regardless ;-)

To the devs: I'm a hardware engineer for IBM. Let me know if there is anything that I can help diagnose/search for that might help, or if you think you might know what's causing it. I'd be glad to do some sleuth work.

I worked on some graphic engine stuff in grad school.

If it's of any help at devs, I have another info:
Now have removed my 7300PCI/E card from motherboard, and use built'in motherboard 6150 card ...incredible no corruption no freeze from 3 day of intensive use (180.27 driver) ..with 7300 PCI/E card not much one hour and freeze all
