Default Lockup with new fx5700 + tyan s2460 + 5336 + kernel 2.6.4

G'day,

I've been having headaches for the last week trying to get a new fx5700 working with my
system. The system has been running rock solid for around 12months with a geforce4 mx 440,
and ran stable with no problems with the 5336 drivers, also with the mx440.
I've been using kernel (as a module) agpgart/amd_k7_agp since upgrading to kernel 2.6,
and agpgart for the last couple of years with good stability & performance.

So I picked up a new fx5700, and dropped it in & locked up in X a couple of minutes later with
no real load, other than a browser. From there i've tried running with nvAgp 0,1,2 and 3. With 0
the system is stable for a little while (even got through about 3/4 of a 30 minute round in
enemy territory)... Then it locked up again. With 1, 2, or 3, I get the display lockup everytime

Only today did I realise that the entire system didn't lockup, only the display, and oddly the
keyboard. So i logged in from a remote machine and grabbed some info from the logs, and
tried killing x, which just ended up with video foo all over the screen. I could still interact with
the machine remotely, but I couldn't use the machine itself, since the keyboard was still
unresponsive, and the display garbled.

After every lockup with the new card, I can see the badness in pci_find_subsys, which from
searching around, shouldn't actually cause the lockup. But I don't get the badness with the
new drivers, and my old card. So that and the card itself are the only differences between a
stable system, and an unstable system.

I've included the output from a perl script I threw together so I could grab the info quickly
from the running system before it locked up.
The files include as much info as I though would be of any use, and as such are roughly
40kb each. They include information from:

* uname -a
* Contents of all files in /proc/driver/nvidia
* lspci output
* loaded kernel modules (lsmod)
* dmesg output
* XF86Config contents (only module/device/screen sections)
* Contents of /var/log/XFree.0.log

nv_info1.txt - Stable system, with the geforce4 mx440, after startx
nv_info2.txt - added fx5700, after startx before it locked up
nv_info3.txt - logged in remotely after the lockup


I hope this goes some way to helping you guys track the issue down, or point out something
i've missed. I'd be happy to give any more information, if needed...

Thanks,
- NoVoodoo

PS: I've attached the perl script I used to generate the above files, incase anyone finds it
useful (as a txt file)

This I believe is your problem and so have other people, no one has found a fix for it and it is believed to be a nvidia driver issue. Your GF4 was fine as you say which kind of rules out the driver, however it maybe the nvidia driver is making bad calls for your current card.



From your nv_info3.txt

hello, did this issue already being resolved?

I also have the same problem with my Nvidia graphics card. Currently I'm running OpenSUSE 10.3

@mnajem: this thread and the software versions discussed are too old to be applicable to current systems; if you have a problem, please see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678. Also, if you have an AGP system, be sure to check whether disabling AGP and/or modifying AGP parameters (such as the AGP rate) has an impact on the problem. Please see the README for more information.
