Default Re: GeForce Go 6600 freezes system when running OpenGL apps

The bug report doesn't need to be generated while X is running.

Its possible that your BIOS is at least part of the problem, especially if this is happening with multiple cards.

You could try experimenting with different versions of NvAGP to see if that makes any difference.

Default Re: GeForce Go 6600 freezes system when running OpenGL apps

I tried updating my bios the other day, and I now have the latest one available but it made no difference =(
I have attached two bug reports...running different NVAGP options....there isn't really any difference between any of the 4...except maybe option 0 might be slightly better.
BTW, does the lates version support changing these options without using a patch or changing one of the installer files? Because I only tried the NVAGP options on the patched 1.0-6629, but have upgraded to the latest release.

Thanks again,
Solv

Default Re: GeForce Go 6600 freezes system when running OpenGL apps

I'd like to see a bug report against a supported driver version. Have you tried 1.0-8174?

Which distribution are you using?

Have you tested 2.6.14.3?

Thanks,
-Lonni

I'm using Fedora Core 4....however I'm not sure whether or not I've bothered trying the latest kernel as my wireless car driver doesn't want to compile on it so I haven't been using it...but I will try it and post soon.

Okay so I tried the other kernel and it lasted for longer...ut2004 ran for about 5 mins running at 800x600 in a window. Log file is attached.

Default Re: GeForce Go 6600 freezes system when running OpenGL apps

Did you also test with other values of NvAGP with 1.0-8174?

I don't see anything wrong in the bug report you just posted. Do you have a 2nd system available to setup a serial console?

Thanks,
Lonni

Default Re: GeForce Go 6600 freezes system when running OpenGL apps

No I haven't yet, but I will definitely try some others...as for the serial link option...I do know how to rig it up, but it does take time, and I just don't have that at the moment. I will keep trying...at least X doesn't lock up on me during normal day to day use now. Thanks for all your help, if I get some more time soon I will endeavour to get a bug report while it's hung and send it through.

In my case, I tried kernels >= 2.6.12 up to 2.6.14.3, and the problem remains.
My graphics adapter is a GeForce Go 6600 PCI-E w/ 256MB (as it says on the topic).
The laptop motherboard chipset is an Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/PM/GMS/910GML.

I don't know what to do more...

I have the same problem when trying to run Q3A on FSC Amilo M3438G (Go 6800). nVIDIA, please stop telling about h/w problems or BIOS issues - under WinXP everything is OK on this hardware/BIOS. This applies to suspend/resume as well.

Thumbs up Re: GeForce Go 6600 freezes system when running OpenGL apps

Well, I think I managed to work around the problem. (Allelujah!)

I'm playing for more than four hours, DOOM3 and Enemy Territory, and the system is running just fine. No freezes what so ever.

For all of you that have similar issues, try adding to the /etc/profile, the following two lines:

Code:
export __GL_FSAA_MODE=0
export __GL_LOG_MAX_ANISO=0
This disables the Full Scene Anti Aliasing and Anisotropic Texture Filtering, respectively.

By the way, what are the default values when we don't specify them by doing an export? I'm curious to know if the problem was just because of the default values, or something else.

Anyone?

Cheers,
Quetzy Garcia

I tried the suggested environment variables, but my GL apps won't work. It just freezes the X Server when it starts.

Default Re: GeForce Go 6600 freezes system when running OpenGL apps

I think i've the same problem... total freeze in many games like ut2004 or enemy territory (no lock ups in windows)

I don't thik it's overheating because first of all I did some tests without the chassis of my PC and second I remembered that the nvidia FX series card (I have an FX 5900XT) downlocked automatically if the GPU goes overheated. (And under windows no freezes at all)
