Ikshaar, can we try to determine what we have in common in order to track this down?

MSI NX6600GT-128VTD
gentoo ~x86
glibc 2.3.5
gcc 3.4.4
7664 nvidia drivers
AGPGART for nforce2 (Asus A7N8X Deluxe 1.x version)
2.6.12-rc5 kernel with local APIC turned off
X.org 6.8.99.8
Disabled Render and Composite
Enabled Coolbits (didn't adjust anything though)

I backed down to 2.3.4.x (whatever gentoo's latest 2.3.4 build is)
Still crashing. Perhaps there's a gl lib in ut2004 I should be replacing...

The new driver does not fix the XiD errors but I can do CTRL+ALT+F1 to get into another terminal and kill the process. I think its getting better but we wont see a fix for awhile. I think we should start giving them all the nvidia-bug thing everytime we see a crash, its the only way we can get this fixed.

Default Re: Trying to make headway into finding the Xid crashes source...

I've read most of the pages on this topic.
I'm having the same trouble with system locking up hard (reset button only option).
I used Mandrake 9.2 for 1-2 years without anything like this. Reading all the positive reviews on ubuntu, I decided to switch.
This is when the lockups started. I've tried the many fixes I've found suggested here and on ubuntu forums.
Drivers that you apt-get with ubuntu (forget version number), was crashing very frequent. My brother helped me over the phone to recompile kernal, and install 6629 drivers (I was using these in mandrake). System was fine for about 3 days, then it started again. Got just as bad as previous drivers, and went back to "nv" driver. Searching for a fix since.
I very much consider myself still a linux newb. But I'm not so sure it's a "nvidia" problem. As a member on the ubuntu forums, I've seen others with this trouble with ATI cards as well.
I've changed zero hardware since changing from Mandrake to ubuntu. Mandrake was fine, WinXP Home is fine. It must have something to do with the newer distro's and the linux kernal and video cards.

Not knowing what any of this means, I looked through my syslog and was able to find where my system crashed from the timestamps. I'll paste them here in case someone can make heads or tails from it.

If there is any other info I should be including to help out, tell me where to find it and I'll add it.
The other bug some have where system locks up, but they can move the mouse, is it a totally different problem or related to this one ?.
I get no response from anything, reset only option.

It seems that Xid is representative of a number of different errors, there seem to be 2 main groups - 6600/GT owners which freeze specifically because of the card, and other software issue related Xids.

I fully agree.

Default Re: Trying to make headway into finding the Xid crashes source...

I wrote in yesterday on the other thread in the forum, "screen frozen, but mouse pointer moves bug", because I thought I'd stopped getting Xid errors, but then I double checked, and lo and behold! there they are. So here's a link to that post, which has the bug report attached:

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...377#post628377

Since my first bug report, I've upgraded all my software to the latest revisions (in particular, kernel 2.6.11-1.27_FC3, X.org 6.8.2-1.FC3.13, NVIDIA driver 1.0-7664), and experienced the same crash. So, now I'm trying things out with the nv driver, at the suggestion of the NVIDIA bug report people. A couple of times since the switch I've thought it crashed, only to clear up a moment or two later. Unfortunately, I can't stress it the same ways w/o hardware acceleration, but I've been running a lot of full screen video (what usually causes my crashes) in the background to try to kill it, with no success. Given that the people in ATI's camp are also having the same difficulties, I can see why the NVIDIA folks may have been reluctant to spend a lot of time on this in the past, as it still isn't clearly their problem. So, I appreciate that they're looking in to it in general, and hopefully they'll be able to figure something out.

And one last thing, someone on one of the many threads I've read about this (also trying to stir up interest on LinuxQuestions.org's hardware forum) mentioned that the motherboard chipset may be the culprit - mine is an ABIT KD7A, with a VIA KT400A northbridge and a VT8235CE southbridge. Just throwing that out there.

I have to read that the chipset may be the problem. I have a VIA K8T800Pro on my ASUS A8V Deluxe. I looked into the chipset stuff and found nothing. If it is the chipset it would also effect you on windows, unless its the chipset driver, though I do not have windows to test on.

Has anyone tested with earlier version of X.org say 6.8.0 or 6.8.1?

my original report was with X.org 6.8.1, kernel 2.6.10, and nvidia drivers 6629, which crashed.
