Default mplayer/xine XV + 7xxx driver series = crash

Hi,

I'm migrating (big jump) from 2.4.25 , nvidia 4363 to 2.6.12, nvidia 7676, and was quite satisfied with 4363 which seems to be a stable release.
But I experienced problem with 7676 when trying to use mplayer with xv driver, or xine : it simply crashes linux. Same problem occurs with all 7xxx series.

My config :
Debian sarge 3.1
MPlayer 1.0pre5-3.3.5
xine v0.99.3.
XFree86 Version 4.3.0.1
GeForce 4 440 64M

Section "Device"
Identifier "GeForce4 440 64M-LCD XFree"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
Option "NvAGP" "3" (tested also with 0)
Option "RenderAccel" "true" (tested also with false)
screen 0
EndSection

I tried also with the debian packages (7174) and does not work at all. I hoped that a downgrade to 6106 would help me to get this functionality, but no luck, all 6xxx seems failed to compile with a 2.6.12 kernel.

Oh yes, there is this error on XFree.log when I use 'mplayer -vo xv'
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (2, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000a200, 0x0000acd8, 0)

(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (2, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000a200, 0x00002a98, 1)

Is someone experienced the same problem with this card, or other cards ?

Thanks at all

if you are using Driver "nv" you are not using nvidia's driver
replace "nv" with "nvidia" and see if that works

Sorry, this is a mistake
You must read in my previous post "nvidia" instead "nv".
In fact, I'm using currently the nv driver instead of nvidia, because it works well with XV driver, but would like to use the nvidia one...

sambot,
Please post an nvidia-bug-report.log for review. Also, are you certain that you're using the most recent BIOS for your motherboard?

Thanks,
Lonni

Hi,
Thansk for your answer, i've juste sent a bug report to nvidia...Unfortunately, Insyde Software does not provide upgrade to the BIOS of my machine ! However, in dmesg, there is a strange line, maybe related to this issue, don't know :
Local APIC disabled by BIOS -- you can enable it with "lapic"
mapped APIC to ffffd000 (01402000)
In fact, I don't understand and I'm curious : in which extent the BIOS version is related to this issue ?

sambot,
Typically, when you see these messages in your X log:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT
that suggests that something is putting the driver into a wait state. Often, that something is a resource management issue, which can be do to SBIOS settings. If your APIC is getting disabled by the SBIOS, that suggests something abnormal.

What output do you see from the following command:
xdpyinfo |grep -i xv

Thanks,
Lonni

Hi Lonni,
And thanks for your attention !

I've just sent you a mail with two bug report, one with a 2.6.11 and another one with apic enable, it doesn't change anything.

xdpyinfo | grep -i xv

For your information APIC doesn't work well with all motherboards. If you have it compiled into your kernel and you have problems with it, disable it.
This could very well more be an issue with APIC and your motherboard(since APIC is used in the 2.6.x) than an issue with the nvidia driver.

Btw. is this a self-compiled kernel or the debian one?

APIC is disable by default, and all my system is stable for a while. Anyway, enable or disable it seems to have no effect : mplayer -vo xv crash all the system with the nvidia driver. It works well with the nv driver. I used a self-compiled kernel, but I've tested with a pre-compiled one, and the problem holds :-(

Hi Sambot,
It's been a while since you wrote this but...
I'm facing the exact same problem.
All is fine when using -vo x11, but if I try -vo xv, it only works on the CRT not on the TV screen (black screen)...
It looks like acceleration doesn't work at 1080i resolution on the DVI port.
Did you "by chance" solve the problem?
Thx to let me know...

Config:
Nvidia 6600 AGP
Using 1080i on an HD TV

Hi,

I have the same problem and haven't found a work around. Did you have any luck yet?

Playing video in mplayer or MythTV on the DVI out gives the black screen of death; the OS appears to hang. I can reboot via ssh if I'm fast enough, otherwise I have to reset. There are no problems when using the CRT.

I've tried making the HDTV (DVI out) the only screen and various tweaks to the xorg.conf (NvAGP, RenderAccel, and several other mentioned in a thread about the 'black screen but mouse still moves' problem).

Anyone have any other ideas? Is nVidia very responsive to bugs reported in their linux driver? The crash/freeze happens every time so there is no problem getting good reproduction steps.

Thanks!

Using:
Debian 3.1
nVidia 6600 AGP 7xxx driver
DVI to a Sony HDTV (1080i)

At this time, no one in this thread has posted an nvidia-bug-report.log for review. Ideally, I'd like to have one that was generated while this problem is present, rather than after a reboot.

Thanks,
Lonni
