I spoke too soon. Eventually, after a few hours of use, I get the NVRM messages and the repaint errors and then the GUI lock.

I experienced the same errors again. Same voluntary preempt and no cgroups. All I had to do is play unreal with software rendering for a few hours, then launch compiz and glxgears. BOOM. NVRM crap.

Same 180.xx.
I'm experiencing similar freezes (without corruption) with both 180 and 178. I reverted yesterday to 173.14.15 and I still don't see any freezes.
Did you try reverting back to 173.14.15?

I cannot compile 178.xx with 2.6.28, and 173 does not support my GPU (8800 GT). Thus, so far I have only used 180.18.

I am running out of options here.

Just running glxgears alone (no compositing manager loaded) does not produce GUI freeze, but horizontal "stripes" of black color seem to flash on toppa the gears. This is even AFTER restarting the X server when the GUI lockup happened.

My observations lead me to conclude there is a problem in the 3D part of the driver that, when coupled with compositors, breaks the compositor and causes it to freeze.

Unreal tournament over wine, using the opengl driver, usually works fine, accelerated, for up to half an hour, then exits with an UnrealEngine error dialog box.

Come on guys, I am trying to use my computer and play a game from 1999 here, and I got myself a $250 card to NOT be able to do it?

There is a patch somewhere in the forum to make both 177.xx (I suppose you mean those) compile with 2.6.28.

OK, maybe I'm speaking too soon, but after installing the patched 117.82 driver, 3D is finally stable, no NVRM messages, even when running glxgears along with Compiz. Note that my kernel 2.6.28 is vanilla, is without cgroups and with only voluntary preemption.

Edit: I spoke too soon. glxgears simply aborts after a few minutes running (the NVRM Xid messages in the syslog), and I don't have to tell you what happens if Compiz is running concomitantly.

gdb backtrace of glxgears:

This is not funny or challenging anymore.

Thumbs down Re: 180.* graphical corruption and freezes system

Dear NVidia's Devs,

I am here to add my own 'I am a customer, and suffering from this problem as well'.

I have had problems with both Gnome, and KDE. KDE will suffer graphics corruption, and require a hard reset.

I bought a system with a nvidia card due to good experiences at work, but right now my 3 year old laptop with (very cheap) Intel graphics run better than my brand new computer.

Funny thing, I just had a freeze when trying to post this message.

I myself don't get any xorg.log message, but I can find these in the syslog:

After both freezes, magic sysrq works, but nothing else.

I tried setting compositing to disabled in xorg configuration for now.

Did turning off compositing solve your stability problems?

Please note that the problems I experienced present themselves without compositing as well, but compositing accelerates their presentation.
