Default Re: 7300 GS freezes X

I followed your link and the system seems to be stable now. (using the 1.0.8762 driver). So what I think is that this is a problem with a default ubuntu 6.06 installation and the 7300 GPU.
Thank you very much for your help!

Default Re: 7300 GS freezes X

I have the same issue (or something similar) under Opensuse 10.2 with an XFX (7300 GS) card. Sometimes everything is ok for hours, but suddenly the system freezes and mostly it doesn't respond on any input (numlock, ctrl+alt+f1 or anything). This freezes seem to appear randomly. Sometimes I am able to move my mouse still.

The freezes doesn't appear using the nv driver.

Some about the system:
I used the easy way at http://en.opensuse.org/NVIDIA to install the drivers (last Sunday November eleven). I had the same issue under suse 10.1 and even much worse under Ubuntu Edgy Eft (which i left because of this bug).

I have an x86_64 system, but ubuntu was installed as i386. The system log messages tells nothing during the freezes.An log file from Xorg is attached (without a freeze).

If this problem also reproduces with 1.0-9742, please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log.

You should also verify that you're using the latest BIOS.

Thanks,
Lonni

I updated the BIOS after your post and running fine for hours now. I'm not sure yet it is fixed or I am just very lucky.

I will post again if my system freezes (I hope it will not).

Thanks for the quick reply.

NB how to generate something if your system freezes...

okey, they still happen, but seldom (less than once a day).

Maybe it is an idea to create nvidia-bug-report.log via crontab?

I canīt upload the log file (create with running X), it's to big. You can download it here:

Does the problem persist if you disable the Composite extension and/or set RenderAccel to false in xorg.conf ?

Default Re: 7300 GS freezes X

I had the composite extension enabled after the last freeze. It wasn't enabled during the freeze, so disabling it won't help.

I have set the rendeaccel option to false (and to be sure also disabled composite) and i'm running fine for almost two days since. So propably disabling the rendeaccel did help..

Default Re: 7300 GS freezes X

okey,

Posted also on the ubuntu forum:
Tried to disable composite, directrendering, upgraded my bios, set first graphics card to PCI-E but it didn't help. Same issue on suse 10.1 suse 10.2 and ubuntu edgy on different nvidia drivers including beta.

I have an onboard ATI-EXPRESS card that i don't use and a new NVIDIA CARD in my PCI-E. Since i put this new card in and use the nvidia drivers there are freezes on my system (AMD PROCESSOR, MSI motherboard).

If someone can help me i will be very very happy.


Besides the freezes are at I/O traffic as mentioned in the topic on the ubuntu forum already.

Default Re: 7300 GS freezes X

ok it suck very hard. But maybe I found something this time.

Playing nexuiz, or mostly only starting it will end up in a freeze. But if I immediately press ctrl+alt+backspace I am able restart X. I i wait a bit longer everything is freezed, like it also does randomly running desktop applications.

The most important, i looked up in my syslog the following (i don't know what it means, but it seem to be related on nvidia and is displayed at all times i have an almost freeze in Nexuiz):

it just freezed for the first time using the nv driver. So sorry guys, it can't be only the nvidia driver. Or the card has a defect (is that possible?) or something wrong with my pci-e slot. I go back to the shop tomorrow..

Also windows did freeze (during installation, while hardware scanning), same issue persisted with another card of the same type. I concluded that this card won't work with my ATI Xpress motherboard. I use no an ati card without problems.
