Default Re: Badness in pci_find_subsys at drivers/pci/search.c

This is just a hunch, but who here uses devfs?

The other day I switched to udev and sysfs and now things seem to be a bit more stable.
Code:
# uptime 
 07:09:38 up 1 day,  8:49,  3 users,  load average: 0.12, 0.07, 0.03
That's not that long, but usually I'm garenteed a lockup by now.

As somebody mentioned earlier, a newer driver found at:

http://www.pny.com/support/drivers/?prod=quadro

seems to work for me. I have been tweaking and reduced my lockups considerably, but using the above driver seems to have eliminated them.

I have play ut2003 (has constant freezes compared with ut2004 which rarely locks up) and put the game through the paces at least a dozen times where I usually am guaranteed a lockup, and haven't had one at all. So far so good. Not sure why nVidia hasn't posted these on their web site.

Does that driver work on AMD64 systems? 64bit linux for example?

It's a Linux/x86 build.

All the fixes I posted did prevent the constant freezes, but when my kids were playing other 3D games other than ut2004, and they were crashing, I started digging a little deeper.

I was assuming that ut2004 was crashing related to a karma bug (see bugzilla.icculus.org for info on that). When I did see other games crashing, I found that my messages file still had the Badness in pci_find_subsys messages, but instead of temporarily freezing my system, it was crashing the 3D app.

Many of the changes helped, and my freezes have been eliminated, but at the expense of the 3D app crashing, but it doesn't happen too often.

I guess it is either crash or freeze. Would really like a "real" solution to this.

Hi,

I got the same problem for a couple of months now.

My config:
Kernel 2.6.5 (but also with all 2.6.x)
Athlon 1400
MSI 6380 (VIA Apollo KT266)
Geforce 2Ti

I was using the agpgart module compiled into the kernel and not as module. Also the framebuffer was compiled in, but never used (not even as bootlogo).
That was working always for a couple of days. Then X froze and I had to ssh in remotly to kill X.


So I today decided to search for the reason of this and found this thread.

I then followed the suggestions and disabled FB and built the agpgart as module. Then I changed the agp driver to the one from nvidia in XF86Config.

But then thing got REALLY worse! With the nvidia agp module X freezes every 10-20 minutes.

I'm now back to the nv-driver of Xfree, cause I dont need any 3D currently.
If I'm not going to get any freezes/crashed with that driver does that mean, that I can forget about all the other possible causes? I allready tried the memtest and never had such problems under the 2.4.x
Kernel series.

Ps: Tried this with both: 5336 and 5328

Like Maro, and ByteEnable, I'm also running an Apollo Pro 266T with Dual P3. I'm having this problem as well.

I'm currently running gnome, and have the "save desktop" feature enabled. The last thing I did was launch xscreensaver (preview), chose the ant-spotlight, watched it run for half a second, and it froze. Now whenever I
go into X as that user, it tries to bring up xscreensaver and hangs before it fully comes up. I can run as other users ok, as long as I dont touch anything GL. And, it probably goes without saying, but if I use the nvidia kernel module, and disable GLX, it works fine.

I get the same messages in /var/log/messages. I don't run FB, I've tried compiling with and without agpart - with and without nvagp, and a number of other suggestions that I've found browsing around. Still, hangs immediately upon starting x (with the xscreensaver preview auto-starting).

Still have a number of combinations to try, and I'll let you know if I'm successful with any of them. Though, it's a little concerning that 2 of the other posters here have my motherboard/setup. Here's my specs, for anyone interested:


Apollo Pro 266T with Dual P3 1ghz
geforce 4 mx
gentoo, kernel 2.6.6-rc1
Currently 5336 drivers, but I've had the same problem with all of them


Possibly (but maybe not) related --

Also, my kernel module would not load unless I did this:

azz root # ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run --extract-only
azz root # cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1/usr/src/nv
azz nv # make SYSSRC=/usr/src/linux-2.6.6-rc1 module
azz nv # cp nvidia.ko /lib/modules/2.6.6-rc1/video
azz nv # modprobe nvidia

If I did not do the above, I would see this in messages:

May 8 17:35:25 azz No module found in object
May 8 17:35:25 azz modprobe: FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.6-rc1/video/nvidia.ko): Invalid module format
May 8 17:36:09 azz No module found in object

And yes, /usr/src/linux is linked correctly, and yes, it's a "built" kernel tree

Watch in menuconfig :

kernel hacking :

Disable [ ] Use 4Kb for kernel stacks instead of 8Kb

Just to reassure you, the build problem is not related to the freeze issue. You seem to have solved the former anyway.
