Default 185.18.31 crashes Nvidia Quadro FX3600M on Dell M6300

The latest driver 185.18.31 causes my system to go black prior to the Nvidia splash page during boot. I have reverted back to 185.18.14. I am unable to use any driver newer than 185.18.14 because they all exhibit this problem.

I am running Ubuntu Jaunty 64bit.


Thanks for the hard work and frequent updates. I look forward to a fixed driver.

This is a known issue. The .29/.31 drivers seem to break X for all Quadro M chips, but a new driver is imminent.

Yes, this is a known problem. A fixed driver should become available this week. I apologize for the delay in addressing this problem.

Dear zander,

do you by chance know whether the problem of the long initialization phase for some mobile GPUs, e.g. the nvs140m, was addressed as well?

Kind regards

Fuchs

@NvFuchs: unfortunately, I don't believe it has.

I understand you guys are working but why have you been allowed to shaft mobile nvidia cards on your "stable" branch of drivers for so long? The qa process seems almost non-existent but as long as it doesn't directly fry the card, I'm fine with that as long as you cut out the facade and publish the fixes sooner. Smaller granularity to your releases guys, I'm tired of having features I don't care about and a broken laptop.

Thank you for the quick replies. I look forward to the fix for mobile GPUs and the VDPAU fixes in the new drivers.

I am able to install the latest driver 185.18.36. It works as expected. Thanks Nvidia linux devs!
