Question X freezes on logout

Hello all.

I have a wird problem. Any time I try to exit from my SuSE 8.1 or log in as a different user, with latest oficial SuSE kernel, and latest Nvidia drivers, the X starts the shutdown process, desktop disappears, then I get only blue lines over the whole screen and that's it, the machine freezes. I already have ACPI disabled in Kernel and when I disable ACPi in bios, this does not happen, but, I need acpi for WXP (Games only....).

My system:

MSI 845PE Max2
MSI GF4 Ti 4200
P4 2,4 GHz
512 MB Ram

If you have any suggestions, I will gladly accept any hint to solve this problem.

Why do you need ACPI for Windows XP? That doesn't make a lot of sense... it'll run just fine with ACPI disabled (at least, in my experience this has been the case).

Well, If I swith off the ACPI in Bios, the WXP just refuses to start. I know this would be the easisest way to go, but it seems I need some other solution.

Thumbs down

i have the same problem, but it seems my motherboard doesn't allow me to turn off acpi so i don't know if that would fix it or not.

X crashes hard (total lock that softdog can't recover from) every time i close X or go to a virtual terminal ALT-CTRL-1 then back to X ALT-CTRL-7

This is a show stoper to me.. If i can't figure out how to get this fixed i'll start trying to figure out how to my money back for this card.

Does anyone have a solution???

Yes, the same thing happened with 3123. I did not go more into the past, as I think 28xx something line was not ment for GF4.

apm=off acpi=off acpi=force acpismp=force kernel options probably can fix your problem or try latest suse kernel from suse ftp.

Not sure what you mean by acpi=off then acpi=force??
I don't know of any force in my kernel config.

My Kernel has no "Power Management support"
so ACPI support is off and Advanced Power Management BIOS support is off ect...

I don't think i'll try a suse kernel on a redhat box.

Oh it just hit me that you ment to pass them as options to the kernel on boot...

Would that make any diffrence if power managment isn't enabled in the kernel?

I found in suse kernel change log that this http://www.nongnu.org/dmidecode/
util can tell you is your system and bios ready for acpi or not, also you need latest acpi kernel patches applied.
