Default Xorg freezing at 100% while gaming (Ubuntu 6.06)

The time period seems kind of random. Usually within 20 minutes of starting a game. Has happened in Tux Racer, UFO: AI, PlaneShift, and mupen. In WinXP I could run Oblivion for hours without any issues.

I have tried RenderAccel False and noapic (acpi=off disables my mouse) and those haven't helped. Also have the latest BIOS.

I have an eVGA 7600GT KO.

I've attached the bug report and some lines from syslog from the last freeze. Any ideas?

If you're using the NVIDIA driver, you need to contact NVIDIA. It is completely impossible for anyone else to support their driver.

elanthis, posting to nvnews *is* contacting NVIDIA. Additionally, the benefit to posting on nvnews is so that others can read about common problems, and post potential solutions. Please don't discourage others from using nvnews.

Hershey,
I see the following in your bug report:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (2, 6, 0x8000, 0x00006f20, 0x0000700c, 0)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (0, 6, 0x0000, 0x0000700c, 0x0000700c, 0)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (0, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000ea38, 0x0000ea38, 0)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (2, 6, 0x8000, 0x000096c4, 0x000097b0, 0)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (0, 6, 0x0000, 0x000097b0, 0x000097b0, 0)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (2, 6, 0x8000, 0x00000a1c, 0x00000b08, 0)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (0, 6, 0x0000, 0x00000b08, 0x00000b08, 0)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (2, 6, 0x8000, 0x000078a0, 0x0000c45c, 0)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (0, 6, 0x0000, 0x0000c45c, 0x0000c45c, 0)

WAIT warnings are caused when the driver is waiting for some event to complete. In many cases they are due to a kernel or BIOS bug.

Does this problem persist with a more recent (2.6.17.x) kernel?

There is also a beta BIOS (1017) available if you're feeling adventurous.

Thanks,
Lonni

I tried 2.6.17.9 and still have the issue. I'm not too keen on using a beta BIOS. Are there any BIOS setting worth playing with?

Sorry, I'm not really familiar with the BIOS you're using.

Well I decided to see if another flavor of Linux would cause the same lockups and OpenSUSE also locks up. So then I decide to try FreeBSD and it locks up as well.

Now I'm back running stable on WinXP64. It's a shame too, I was really liking Ubuntu.

Try an older BIOS. Newer != always better.

Well it was working fine in WinXP64 before I went to Linux (ran it only for a couple days). Now it's locking up in Windows too. Time to take the card back and try for another one.

Ever check to make sure the card isn't overheating?
