Default No GLX output with 285.05.09 drivers on Quadro FX 350M

Installed the latest binary release with no problems. nvidia-settings returns the correct driver version.

Running glxgears produces no video output (just the black background). The FPS seem acceptable, however.

Glxgears is calling the correct libraries.

This problem also breaks any 3D functions in window managers (unity, for example).

Note that if I downgrade to 173.14.30, 3D acceleration does work (glxgears shows gears).

Also while working through this issue, a 1 pixel wide vertical line has appeared on my Dell Precision M65 display. After some googling, this appears to be the result of a manufacturing defect of some over-heating NVidia chipsets.

Help!

I'd like to add a "me too". Same hardware, same driver, same issue: GL applications only display a black window. I can add that I've had this problem for a number of driver releases (since sometime this spring?)

I've provided log files for convenience. As you can see, there aren't any reported errors. /proc/driver/nvidia/warnings is empty.

Installed packages are:

> dpkg -l \*nvidia\* | grep ii
ii glx-alternative-nvidia 0.1.94 allows the selection of NVIDIA as GLX provider
ii libgl1-nvidia-alternatives 280.13.really.275.28-1 transition libGL.so* diversions to glx-alternative-nvidia
ii libgl1-nvidia-glx 285.05.09-1 NVIDIA binary OpenGL libraries
ii libglx-nvidia-alternatives 280.13.really.275.28-1 transition libgl.so diversions to glx-alternative-nvidia

Note that I cannot cannot backport to 173.14.30, as it is ABI incompatible with the X server running on my system.

Can you try with disabling compiz OR nvidia-xconfig --no-composite ? Let us know results.

I run KDE, compositing was disabled in the window manager.

However, with composite disabled in the X config file (through nvidia-xconfig), GLX now works.

Of course, I hope composite can be re-enabled soon!
