Default Re: Freezes after upgrade from Fedora 10 to 12

I just want to add that F13 Alpha x86_64 (as of today) also randomly freezes as soon as the proprietary driver comes into play.

Default Re: Freezes after upgrade from Fedora 10 to 12

GT8600 same problem, sometimes it runs for minutes, sometimes hours. Also began happening on Fedora 12, not a problem on 10 or 11.

Can ssh in sometimes and one core is always stuck, X is unkillable, dmesg cannot finish.

The screen start to flicker with black bars and X and the machine is instantly frozen. If playing a game the music plays on for a little while until it dies.

The resolution is most often hard reboot rarely ssh in and issue reboot. Have tried all suggestions I could find on here, including MSI and a ton of kernel boot options.. Even tried the irqpoll option mentioned, nothing helps.

The crash can happen at any load. All it seems to take is X running.

Note this here is not actually related to the freezing. It goes away with the irqpoll option. But the freezing is the same.

Code:

Default Re: Freezes after upgrade from Fedora 10 to 12

I watched the Xorg process with gdb in ssh and waited for it to freeze, at the exact freeze moment, the irq message came and I tried to get a backtrace, but the info is sparse due to missing debug syms.

Code:
(gdb) cont
Continuing.

Its strange about the irq, since MSI the card uses irq 26

Default Re: Freezes after upgrade from Fedora 10 to 12

Found a sure fire way to crash. Watch a youtube video while compiling chromium with make -j5 chrome using the latest git clone.

Again I had ssh open with gdb attached to X and was successful in running a full nvidia-bug-report in the frozen state.

Code:

Default Re: Freezes after upgrade from Fedora 10 to 12

Solved: I bought a new mobo+ram+cpu.

It should be confirmed with some degree of certainty that the graphics card itself is not faulty since it works after the upgrade, not a single byte was changed on my hard disk so its the exact same OS/settings/drivers and everything, only thing changed was the above 3 components.

So I hope my posts at least help nvidia identify the problem so those who cannot just upgrade their hardware can get it solved too.

Just for closure I attach a bug report with the working hardware and settings. (If you rigorously diff my xorg confs I did change monitor freq setup, but this was after confirming the problem was fixed, just forgot to generate the bug report before the change)

One last hint I discovered just before upgrading; the crashes are a lot harder to provoke into happening with the Composite extension Disabled and MSI on.

oh and a final final thing, the exact troublesome hardware used with the card before:
Mobo: Asus P5B-V LGA775, BIOS version 1211
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4Ghz boxed
RAM: 2x 2GB - Corsair DDR2-800, TwinX dual channel XMS2-6400, PC6400 C5 (5-5-5-18)

Everything running at stock values / auto settings in BIOS.

Thank you for reporting back peavey. I face the very same freezes with a GTX280 on a Gigabyte 965P-DS4 and I've seen others using similar systems. Intel's P965 chipset comes to mind as root of those freezes, or maybe PCIe-1.x slots in connection with a PCIe-2.0 GeForce in general.

Unfortunately there is no feedback from Nvidia in his thread like "Our developers are aware of the problem an will fix it within the next 5 minutes!" Enjoy your new system and thanks again.

Yes, I did notice that about the chipset of the other posters where info was avail. And I also noticed the deafening silence from the nvidia guys, this is also why I decided to just get a new machine now rather than later. I do my full-time work (software engineer) on this baby, and it crashing in the middle of a good code-a-thon was really annoying.

I have scrapped the GPU too, for a Asus GTX 260, and it too runs fine on the new hardware. This i7 build is solid as a rock.. for now at least And thank you yes, I am enjoying it, lets hope this "stable period" on the proprietary driver lasts a good while.

A final hint, this could seem somewhat kernel related too, maybe if you get a kernel guru to look into the info we collected in this thread he might go "oh I know just what it is" and have a solution.

Cheers

Kernel developers are pretty frightening and for a silly regular user like me, their mailing list with all those strong opinions is not the place I wanted to show up with my tainted kernel desktop freezes.

I filed a bug against Fedora's kernel package now:

I uninstalled nvidia, using nouveau now. But still system hangs...
So it's probably not nvidia (only) related....
Using Fedora 13.
