Thumbs down X crash and system freeze with 295.40

Hi, on Debian amd64 with kernel 3.3.2 and drivers 295.40 and KDE desktop I am experiencing X freezes and/or crashes, leading to system freeze if the computer is left running.

In the log I get only:

NVRM: GPU at 0000:01:00.0 has fallen off the bus.

I also get various segfaults in vlc, virtualbox, to name a few since the upgrade. System freezes happen wether those applications are used or not, so it must be a separate issue.

Computer remains reacheable with ssh for a short time windows, I managed to run nvidia-bug-report during a crash, report attached.

I have been suffering various crashes for the last three releases, bug reports are dismissed and receive no apparent attention, this is very frustrating. NVidia drivers are a pain and a threat to my system, with the support nearly inexistant they are becoming an unbearable pain.

I am seriously considering a change of graphic card for one with proper support, preferably with open drivers... It will be worth every dime to avoid suffering those instability and then having to talk to a wall for support.

Default Re: X crash and system freeze with 295.40

hi, im having the same problem but i'm using gentoo linux. Im using a 8500GT nvidia card also with kernel 3.3.2. Im seeing random crashes most of the time when vdpau is in use. It seems the regression was introduced in nvidia-drivers-295.33 as the problems started with this driver version. Im now using 295.40 and the same crashes still happen. 290.10 was working normally and i didn't have any crashes with this version. Please track down the regression and fix this bug. The attached log shows the X11 log. The whole pc was unresponsive and i could only turn it of by pressing the power button (no output on screen anymore), but i also had chrashes that freezed the whole pc. This bug is for shure connected to the nvidia driver as i don't get crashes with 290.10.

I'm also thinking about switching to another graphic card - as a lot of bugs inside the nvidia driver don't get fixed. It seems you have to be a big company to get support. The context switching problem of nvidia cards with vdpau is still present and i reported this error some time ago. I got one answere and afterwards the devs just ignored the posts and didnt answere anymore. - Nice to know that a company that i recommended a long time is is just ignoring their customers

Default Re: X crash and system freeze with 295.40

It happened several times since the initial report, last time after the classic:
"NVRM: GPU at 0000:01:00.0 has fallen off the bus."

The system remained functional (sort of) for a while, I got interupt messages in the syslog and kern.log (attached), and pretty much any application would segfault (vlc, chromium ...). After a few minutes Xserver froze, I ran nvidia-debug (attached) before the system locks up completly.

I tested reverting to previous drivers, issue appeared after 290.10 which is last known working driver for me (and many others).

Hello

can you test with persitence mode?

# /usr/bin/nvidia-smi -pm 1
/usr/bin/nvidia-smi -q | grep -i Persistence

Default Re: X crash and system freeze with 295.40

Interesting link, thanks. nvidia-smi isn't part of a standard Debian NVidia install, so I installed it and I am testing right now.
I'll let the system run for a while and will stress-test it later today.

Default Re: X crash and system freeze with 295.40

No luck with persistence mode, this time just starting a video player froze the system...

Typical "NVRM as fallen of the bus", then:

vlc[12830]: segfault at 8 ip 00007fd33cc9a4cb sp 00007fffa2b67b48 error 4 in libQtDBus.so.4.7.4[7fd33cc58000+76000]
NVRM: GPU at 0000:01:00.0 has fallen off the bus.
NVRM: Xid (0000:01:00): 3, C 00000007 SC 00000007 M 00001ffc Data ffffffff

So this isn't the fix for this case. "Nouveau" driver is indeed working with low performances, as is 290.10. I guess I'll have to patch 290.10 for the security hole corrected in 295.40, and hope it keeps working with my Xserver untill I get a new video card or a fixed driver.

I have this happening on my 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 with Nvidia Quadro FX 3700 using driver ver 295.40. I have enabled persistence mode following the instructions at http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/debian-...allen-off-bus/ and will report back any results.

I'm experiencing this problem on OpenSuse 12.1 and earlier on OpenSuse 11.4. On 11.4 the system would freeze and require a hard reset. On 12.1, I'm so far thrown out to the login screen. This issue was the reason I upgraded my OS, but it didn't solve the problem.

From /var/log/messages:
May 22 23:13:26 linux-h5yp kernel: [97450.832648] NVRM: Xid (0000:02:00): 6, PE0001

Default Re: X crash and system freeze with 295.40

I've been running Kubuntu on this Dell XPS M1330 laptop with NVIDIA 8400M for four years with no problems. Suddenly when I upgraded from Oneiric (11.10) to Precise (12.04) I am getting crashes where X freezes at 100% CPU. The screen is frozen--sometimes the cursor still moves, sometimes it disappears. I can SSH in and see X at 100% CPU. I cannot switch to another VT. Sometimes I can SAK+K to kill X and restart KDM, and sometimes I can't, and I have to power off.

It seems to happen when playing YouTube videos in Flash in Firefox. I haven't had it crash at any other time so far.

It may be minutes, hours, or days between crashes.

I've tried 295.40 and 295.49, and both exhibit this freeze/crash.

This is what I see in dmesg:

I've never had a problem like this until "upgrading" to these newer drivers that come with 12.04 Precise. My laptop is now totally unreliable.

Default Re: X crash and system freeze with 295.40

Can anyone comment on whether 295.53 fixes this? It has recently become available in Debian Wheezy and I am contemplating an upgrade... So far stuck on 290.10 which is the last version that worked properly -- Debian wheezy using GeForce 9800 GTX+ here, and I've been seeing the problem since the first of the 295 versions.
