Default Freeze on X shutdown or change to console

Hi

Another one of the infamous switch-to-console freezes.

When the nvidia drivers are installed, the machine freezes on a change to console or X shutdown. Complete freeze - nothing except a hard reboot works. This _only_ happens with TV-out enabled; if I disable TV-out everything works fine.

I just rolled back the drivers to 3123 - now everything works again - newer versions, no-go.

This is a Palit Daytona GF4 Ti4200 AGP8X. I am running Debian Sid (Woody also tried, same problems).

This is a Thunderbird/1200 on a Asus A7V133-C (KT133A-based - BIOS 1009, PCB 1.05).

I am running 2.4.21-rc3 - the same trouble happens on 2.4.19 and 2.4.20. I have tried disabling ACPI and APIC (normally enabled); I am not using APM or nvidia-framebuffer. No changes in the kernel configuration helps.

I have tried almost anything related to AGP or PCI settings in the BIOS; no go. No IRQ sharing is taking place with the graphics card.

Attached is the XFree86.0.log.

I have (almost) the same graphics card (MSI Ti4200) and I'm experiencing the same problems with the newest NVIDIA drivers.

Here is my hardware:
Asus A7N8X with nForce
MSI [GeForce4 Ti 4200 AGP 8x] (rev a1)

I did not experimented a lot with kernel-parameters or different versions of the NVIDIA module.
If you need some more informatie, please ask.

With regards,

Charles

Default Re: Freeze on X shutdown or change to console

I was experiencing this problem under Mandrake9.2 and 10.
There was a suggestion to place 'Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP, TV"' in the "Device" section of your XF86Config-4.

This did NOT help me. After I did this, I had no luck getting Xwindows to start at all.

What DID help me, though, is placing
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT"

in the Device section.
As soon as I did that, I could switch back and forth from X to console.

Do with it what ye will.
