Default Re: problems escaping from X

I have the same problem. This is my computers last words. I've tried all the suggestions in this thread. I'm using Redhat 9 on a dell XPS 600 with a GeForce 7800 GTX.

I had also the same problem - logging out/shutting down/switching to console use to hang the system. Everything works with nv driver. Later I found some info regarding this in one of the threads, I changed the bios setting for display device. It had three options "1)LCD, 2)CRT and 3)LCD and CRT". The default was 1) and when I changed it to 3), everything works perfectly.

This points to some bug in Nvidia driver, but looks like they are not interested in fixing it.

@lapenta: this is a known problem in RHEL4 U2's i686 SMP kernel; you can get a fixed beta kernel from http://people.redhat.com/~jbaron/rhel4/RPMS.kernel/.

Thanks, I installed the kernel patch and all works perfectly now :->

specifically I installed the following.. I picked the -smp- version because I have a multi-processor system.

http://people.redhat.com/~jbaron/rhel4/RPMS.kernel/
kernel-smp-2.6.9-22.3.EL.i686.rpm
kernel-smp-devel-2.6.9-22.3.EL.i686.rpm

Default Re: problems escaping from X

I have this same problem when using the stock Ubuntu kernels. I tried i386 and AMD64 install and kernels. I also tried the default 7667 Ubuntu driver and compiling my own 7676 driver. They all have the same problem. I have tried the stock SMP, non-SMP, k8, and generic kernels.

The issue is when coming out of X (either to shut down or just CTRL-ALT-F1 to get to the console) the whole system just dies. The fan on the video card turns off when this happens and the system is completely dead (no video, can't ping the machine, etc.).

My card is a Gainward 5700 Ultra or somesuch running a stock Ubuntu Breezy 5.10 install (both AMD64 and i386 versions). System is running Opteron on a DK8N (nVidia3? 250 Pro chipset).

I know this has something to do with the stock kernel because if I compile my own kernel the problem goes away. Does anyone know what exactly in the kernel causes this problem? I would rather not compile my own kernel, or at least be able to compile the stock Ubuntu kernel with the offending option(s) removed.

Any progress?

Side note - I tried rolling a custom kernel on Ubuntu 5.10 and the problem persists

Exact same problem here. Geforce FX 5700 on an Intel P4 2.6, Ubuntu 5.10, stock kernel image 2.6.12-10-686-smp. I've spent several hours so far playing with xorg.conf settings, trying different kernels (though haven't compiled one myself yet), different nvidia drivers, nothing. Very strange because I had no problems using Ubuntu 5.04. I hope this gets figured out...

Same here. 5700 ultra, 2.6.12-10-386 and using any nvidia (as apposed to nv) hangs hard when I reboot, or ctl-alt-backspace, or shutdown or anything else that exits X.

Any fixes yet?

O.k. I'm a dork.

If I follow the steps in the help file, it works perfectly.

I can't believe I didn't RTFM.
I'm such a n00b.

EDIT
I spoke too soon. Problem remains.
Oh well.
