Default 260.19.04 and GTX 460 freezes when starting gl

Hello,

just installed a new Gigayte GTX460 on a "Linux version 2.6.32-5-amd64" box. After launching X and starting "glxgears" the System freezes. Same things happens while starting kde and all the 3d Stuff is activated.

I have attached a bug report. Same thing happens with 256.53

Btw. The line "Sep 29 23:47:07 privat kernel: [ 543.103378] NVRM: os_pci_init_handle: invalid context!" occurs 300000 times

Kind regards

Michael

Welcome to the club. I got this problem too after motherboard/cpu upgrade. Seems to be nVidia drivers fault. I've tried most workaround attempts found in forums, but no tricks will help.

What was your previous video card?

I suspect it could be a case of the nVidia drivers just not working properly with some motherboards.

My previous card was a Asus GTS 250. I will upgrade the Bios of the MB to see if it helps.

I had a similar problem. Running any OpenGL app would freeze the machine. 460 had been working, and tried it with the Unigine Heaven demo. Put a 9600 back in as a temporary measure. Updated kernel (2.6.35-r9), reinstalled drivers ( 260.19.06). Problem gone now and 460 back working.

Just wanted to say that I have the same problem, using Zotac GTX 460 AMP!
I bought a new computer like 1 week ago, and everything worked perfectly until yesterday.
All of a sudden I had an X freeze while playing, and since then I havent been able to use any 3D at all since changing the powermizer level seems to freeze or restart X.

Using NVidia drivers 256.53, also tried latest beta drivers 260.19 and 256.44, no luck.
Cant try any earlier driver versions since they seem to be incompatible with my Xorg version, undefined references etc.

It seems to be a driver related Problem. I brought the card back today. The guy checked the card in a windows pc. Worked fine. I will exchange the motherboard and give it a try with another card.

MB is (and was very soon) a Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P.

I actually solved it by disabling TwinView in xorg.conf.
Hopefully this works for you too.
