Default Re: Bug Report: Hard crash (freeze) with nVidia GTX 460

Hello

I got so lucky this day! I got a log with logverbose 6 after an X hang. This one was lucky and didn't bring down the rest of the system. This occurred when rescaling a VDPAU video. I hope it is of some help and can help everyone feel and be happy.

Thanks

Just wanted to report that I still have lockups with Composite off (just much less often). Also, the bug that cookiecaper is something different, as I have crashes totally unrelated to VDPAU.

I really doubt it is a hardware problem because:

1) I have no problems at all under Linux with Nouveau drivers;
2) I have no problems at all under Windows 7 with nVidia drivers.

So, Linux nVidia driver is probably the culprit.

There seems to be a known issue with fermi cards

The nouveau driver wouldn't suffer from this as it hasn't got any power saving capability as far as I know.

I saw on this thread everybody is talking about Hard crash (freeze) with nVidia GTX 460 and some other gpu cards. For now we will concentrate on GTX 460 + nvidia driver + ubuntu OS.

Please try to reproduce this issue on ubuntu and let us know the reproduction steps and logs by running nvidia-bug-report.sh as root , so we can try to reproduce in house.

Ha, is it at least someone from nVidia? That would be good news...

The problem is that reproducing is not possible; sometimes this hard freeze does not happen in days. There have been a lot said in this thread indeed, I think some is totally unrelated to what's actually causing the freezes on GTX 460 (particularly everything that talks about GTX 460).

I dont run Ubuntu but Gentoo, however I think the hard freezes are due to the same underlying bug.

elvanor, We understood that reproducing is not easy OR its long process. But anyway we all need to find out some reproduction steps then only NVIDIA can help to fix. I tried to repro this issue but still no luck. My suggestion is Install fresh OS and nvidia driver and also applications that causing crash and do some experiments to reproduce this issue. Use some performance calculating tools and different hardware's like mouse/keyboards/monitors etc....

Even if we manage to reproduce, since it hard freezes no useful logs can be given to nVidia... The only way to really fix the issue is for an nvidia engineer to setup the exact same box as one user with problem (eg, same motherboard, same GPU), and leave it running with X open. It will crash after some time.

Hi. I'm using Mandriva Linux 2010.2 running on the kernel 2.6.36.3. My Asus laptop has the GTS 360M graphics card and I have the 32 bit 260.19.44 driver installed. I get random screen freezes very often, and the freeze frequency increases when using flash 10.2. The only way out is to power of the laptop and restart again.

For me, reproducing is easy. It freezes every time I run youtube videos in 720p in full screen.

I don't know if this is related. I have a 9600GT installed. But I have filed this:

I think my experience with gtx 460, reported here http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=156372 , can help a little with diagnosing the problem.

Notice that offending card was causing freezes on one motherboard, but on another it caused various xorg errors, always preceded by "NVRM: os_pci_init_handle: invalid context!" flood in sysylog.

"Problem" card was ASUS ENGTX460/2DI/768MD5, "freezing" mobo ASUS M4A87TD, "nvrm" mobo ASUS M2N-E

Does your Gigabyte GTX 460 still run without any problems?

Yep, perfectly. Not a single freeze or xorg crash in a month.
