Default Re: 1.0-7667 for Linux x86 released

regarding lockups...

I recently upgraded from FC3 to FC4 and started getting lockups... first on
DOOM3, then I found it happend very reliably running the Scimark2 C
version compiled with gcc 2.95.3. Compiling this benchmark with FC4
stock gcc (4.0.1) or gcc32 (3.2.3) did not result in a lockup. Stock FC4
gcc has also failed to produce other working packages built from source;
they segfault, but work when compiled with gcc32.

JIC: an attempt to re-configure and re-compile gcc 2.95.3 compiler was made,
since it was built under FC2 or FC3. This resulted in a make bootstrap error
looking for lowlevellock.h via /usr/include/bits/stdio-lock.h... !

Since vendors are very conservative about compilers, I would hazard to
guess that the switch to gcc 4.0.1 that happened at FC4 could be causing
problems, and/or that there might be some trouble with some possible libc
(or other) surgery that has resulted in lowlevellock.h disappearing.

At the very least, perhaps a full re-compile of the libraries and driver with
FC4 gcc32 (3.2.3). at least, would be in order, and possibly fix this problem.

Since gcc 2.95.3 cannot be completely bootstrapped under FC4,
if you want to try my 32 bit binary, see the attachment at:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla....cgi?id=162314

This lockup problem may be agp related, since another system
running an identical FC4 software installation, but without Nvidia's
drivers, not running X, not using an AGP card (and not even an
nvidia card (S3): its a server) does not have this lockup problem
with the scimark2 binary.

It looks as if the whole system locks up just as scimark2 is trying
to write the results into the xterm window... which makes me
wonder about lowlevellock.h...

Correction: lock ups do not seem to involve nvidia's drivers or libraries at all.

After a fresh boot, at the console, the kernel driver is not even loaded.

It also does not affect my other two systems, only one.

I was reporting the bug incorrectly, so if anyone else has this lockup problem, please
add anything you can to:

Default Re: 1.0-7667 for Linux x86 released

Somebody who knows where I can get the latest driver for the Amd athlon xp. It seems like Nvidia not supporting this CPU, only the latest 64-bit cores and etc i linux. I have ran the 1.0-7667 driver in the console. The result was this error message:

ERROR: this .run file is intended for the
Linux-x86_64 platform, but you appear to be
running on Linux-x86. Aborting installation.

I'm running following hardware:
CPU: amd athlon xp 2.6 (ehhh...whatever... )
Gainward geforce 6800 ultra 256mb agp

Software: Fedora Core 4

--Thanks--

If you download driver for x86-64 it will work only on x86-64. If you download driver for x86 it will work only on x86.

What's so strange about it?

Nothing is strange with that. But where can I get this driver for the x86 arcitecture? Someone who having a link to post?
And by the way, the title of this post is: 1.0-7667 for Linux x86 released. Not for x86, but for x86_64 !! (confusing)

@kekmann: the first post in this thread includes links to the HTTP/FTP download URLs for the Linux/x86 (also referred to as ia32/i386) driver.

Default Re: 1.0-7667 for Linux x86 released

Since upgrading to 1.0-7667, I've been experiencing hangs.

Symptoms: mouse moves, alt-sysrq works, the screen is otherwise frozen. After messing around with alt-sysrq-r and ctrl-alt-f1, I have seemed to able to switch to the first virtual console: the frozen X picture on the screen moves when I press enter. Even (blinfly) kill -9'ing and relaunching X does not clear the screen as it sometimes does.

Software: newest Fedora Rawhide; xorg-x11-6.8.2-45 (has happened with slightly older xorg-x11 as well), kernel 2.6.12rc4 from kernel.org (not a Fedora kernel), NVAGP=3.


Hardware: Geforce 440MX, Celeron Tualatin 1.4GHz, Abit BP6, i815.

The hangs used to semi-reproducibly happen with a specific Opera saved session and randomly when browsing with opera. Now I found out that when I launch the Xft enabled nxclient, the hangs happens when the config dialog is shown (before nxclient even connects to anywhere.) There are two versions of nxclient at www.nomachine.com, and the non-Xft enabled version does not cause the hang.

The alt-sysrq-t stack trace vaguely points to the nvidia driver:
Jul 12 18:51:08 kernel: [1399303.999970] [<e111010a>]
_nv002034rm+0x12/0x18 [nvidia]
Jul 12 18:51:08 kernel: [1399304.000153] [<c0315956>]
schedule_timeout+0x56/0xc0
Jul 12 18:51:08 kernel: [1399304.000159] [<e1116ac9>]
rm_isr_bh+0x1d/0x24 [nvidia]
Jul 12 18:51:08 kernel: [1399304.000247] [<c0122450>]p
rocess_timeout+0x0/0x10
Jul 12 18:51:08 kernel: [1399304.000254] [<c0122579>]sys_nanosleep+0x109/0x190
Jul 12 18:51:08 kernel: [1399304.000263] [<c01030b7>] sysenter_past_esp+0x54/0x75


I reported this to linux-bugs@nvidia.com some time ago, but unsurprisingly never heard back. (Probably because this hasn't been widely reported.)

Are other people seeing anything like this?

Talking Re: 1.0-7667 for Linux x86 released

I have seen this starting with 2.6.13-rc3 or 2.6.13-rc4 with the stock FC4 xorg-x11(Geforce3 Ti-500). I thought it was FF 1.0.6 until it hung in the NVidia flash screen. Outside of the flash screen it seems to run fine for a few minutes before it hangs X.

I haven't seen this occur at all in 2.6.12.X, 2.6.12-rc2-mm2 or in a 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 rebuilt kernel.

Basically not going to worry about it until 2.6.13 becomes official I figure NVidia will do an update after that time.

I skimmed through the LKML and really haven't seen anything. Others have mentioned a similar problem on the IRC channel.

Ok, thanks!

Fortunately, the lockups are not that frequent, so I guess I too will wait for 2.6.13 and/or new NVIDIA driver.

There are two threads. One is "1.0-7667 for Linux x86 released." and one is "1.0-7667 for Linux x86-64 released." They are separate threads. One for each architecture. You can download the x86 (not 64) version from http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_archive.html
