Default Re: FreeBSD-amd64 driver ?

Anyone else having it page dump on exit from X ? I didn't have the compat5x installed so I am installing that now to see if that improves things. No change to grab a bug report though since it works fine until I exist KDE4.

Sincerely,
Rusty Nejdl

@rnejdl: can you catch the page fault in ddb?

Let me recompile my kernel with that in there and learn how to use it. I'll let you know.

ok, it waited about 5 seconds after coming out of x and then panic'd. Here's a camera shot of the ddb and the trace. Never done this before so please let me know what else you need. It's still sitting in the debugger.

Thanks, Rusty. The NVIDIA driver is not in the trace itself, but it's entirely possible that it corrupted memory, leading to the crash. Can you generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log file capturing your configuration (from within X, preferably started with -logverbose 6)?

That's so great, thanks zander for all the work. I just installed the driver on 8-STABLE and switched from nouveau to nvidia. It works flawlessly, better than nouveau for desktop effects, and I can play eduke32 again

I only changed X11BASE in the makefiles as it is /usr/local since years (I don't have the /usr/X11R6 symlink).

For a first BETA driver for amd64 it works really nice, I expected crashes and panics

Indeed he is

Just tested the driver with an on-board GeForce 8300 which works great (1000x better than VESA let me assure you), tomorrow I'll test my main workstation with a GeForce GTX280 :-)

Here's the bug report I finally got. After the crash, it takes a while for the background fsck to finish.

Default Re: FreeBSD-amd64 driver ?

This is great news! One tweak though, you should probably change the wording in regard to running RELENG_7. Right now it implies running RELENG_7 kernel on a 7.2 system which would be bad and cause problems. It is important to keep the FreeBSD "base system" and kernel in sync. The rest of the FreeBSD base will need to be updated to RELENG_7 along with the kernel (as described in http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/...makeworld.html). This is especially important for anyone running ZFS.

You could just change the "you can use FreeBSD 7.2 with a current RELENG_7 kernel..." to something like "you can upgrade from FreeBSD 7.2 to 7-STABLE...." and leave the rest as it still makes sense. You may also want to point them to this url http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/...nt-stable.html

Good work and thanks for the beta!
