Default Re: graphic errors with amd64/nforce4/pci-e

First, thanks everyone for these informations !

Is it me, or all the things to do (NoRenderExtension etc.) is available in i386 mode only ? because the only guy, that told his kernel arch, used an i386...

Thx again... i'll see later for the sensors

Well I'm compiling my kernel for amd64 and recovering my bzImage from arch/x86_64/boot/.

On the other hand, this system is FAR from stable.

@Chunkey:
Ooops, running nvidia-settings just hard-froze my system. I had to reboot!
...I'll never do THAT again!
(this doesn't happen with you?)

One thing I'm noticing about my GA-K8NF-9 motherboard is that the onboard
ethernet (forcedeth) decides to crap-out on me once a day or two and is just
stuck there with it's lights (in the back) blinking slowly.
I cannot find a way to reset it except for a cold-boot (?!) - not even a warm
reboot will do!
Do you have this problem too? Do you know a way to fix it?

Hmm, on x86_64 it kills X, on i386 it's fine...
Anyway "nvidia-settings -q GPUCoreTemp" shouldn't crash it, but you'll only get
something like: (instead of a (nice) gui...)
Attribute 'GPUCoreTemp' (debian64:0.0): 43.
'GPUCoreTemp' is an integer attribute.
'GPUCoreTemp' is a read-only attribute.

Hmm, my onboard nic works fine, no problems (yet)... altough I miss the jumbo-frames support... so hmm, what does dmesg say... can you bring it back with "ifdown eth0 and ifup eth0"? or when you remove and then reprobe the module (again)... have you tried nvidia's nforce-drivers? or have you played with other versions of forcedeth? or with vanilla kernels...

ANOTHER X CRASH.

This time X locked up. I was very afraid that it was a hardware freeze, but
I found I could ping it, then log into it via ssh, and then run 'top' to see that
X was taking up 99.9% CPU. The system was behaving strangely too, like it
was locking for maybe 5 seconds and then releasing and I could only use the
system between the freezes. I couldn't kill the process via the normal signal,
but I did a 'kill -9' on the X process and then the whole system froze and I had
to reboot it. So I'm pretty sure it was the nvidia driver again.

This is really bad. Isn't there a way I could just use the open-source nv driver
so that I can just have stability?


@Chunkey: I get this when I try to run it:
bach /home/charlton [3]>nvidia-settings -q GPUCoreTemp

WARNING: Error querying attribute 'GPUCoreTemp' specified in query
'GPUCoreTemp'; 'GPUCoreTemp' is not available on bach:0.0.

...oh well. That's not really important for me at the moment. What I
really need to do is replace my flaky ethernet and of course replace the
flaky nvidia-kernel 2269 driver with something that works.

The NVIDIA driver works (well, except for the missing/corrupt splash screen) for me on x86_64 after I disabled the RENDER extension and switched on software cursor mode..

@charlton:

hmm, what kernelsource (version, patches, (distro), ...) do you use. Can you also please attach your kernelconfig _somewhere_?

and about gpu's sensor:
It seems like only GTs have this features ... (or, am I wrong?)

yes, zander already said it's a driver bug... and it's going to be addressed (see second/third post in this thread)...



@barrettabel
xorg.conf / XF86Config-4 please...

...
31106 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6221.200 FPS
35294 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7058.800 FPS
35295 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7059.000 FPS
35304 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7060.800 FPS

Sorry took so long, I was in a car accident.

This is in regards to:

Also, I'm assuming this is a side effect of the the "NoRenderExtension" bit, but
when I run glx gears, (or anything 3d) I get

glxgears: Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual.

@barrettabel
Hmm, your xorg.conf seems to be ok...

so can you please attach nvidia-bug-report.sh 's report + everything glxinfo in tar.gz/tar.bz2/.zip/.rar/whatever?

@chunkey:
Sorry, I was a little peeved at the time I wrote that last post as I had just
been through a system crash that I attributed to the nvidia-kernel driver.
(no hard feelings)
It MAY have been the case that the nvidia-kernel module was built against
a kernel version slightly different than the one I was running, as I haven't
had a crash since I recompiled it.
Not sure though, but I'm gonna be more careful about recompiling all my
modules with the intended kernel before the next time I go about blaming
everyone else. OTOH, if it crashes again I'll definitely post...

The problem has been tracked down to a bug in the handling of 64-bit BAR's in XFree86/Xorg; for details and proposed fixes, please see: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2322. Future NVIDIA driver releases should detect and work around this problem.

very nice ... (after nearly 1 hour of building xorg for sid)...
Now it's like in I386(VTs OK, nvidia-settings don't crash, HWCursor & Render works fine)
