It's hard to get something from the log after restart - it might be cut due to unclean shutdown by fsck.

Try opening a terminal, so you can visually track down changes:
Code:
#sudo tail -f /var/log/messages
and
Code:
#sudo tail -f /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Make both terminals to stay on top.

The next released driver should include this workaround.

Can you give a hotfix to us on the current released driver so that we can live happily?

To clarify, the problem can't be worked around with changes to the open-source kernel interface files; an updated driver release with the workaround should be released in the near future.

Just wanted to say thank you to all those from Nvidia that fixed this small bug. The latest driver has appeared to fix the problem. To any still with a 7300 or similar with the ATI mobo rs480 or similar the driver 100.14.11 appears to have fixed the problem

Just to clarify, the problem was worked around in the latest driver. Its still not clear that this is an nvidia driver bug.

Default Re: nvidia 7300 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities (driver BUG)

I still got hard locks using 3D apps
I have a MS-7168 (RS480) togheter with a PNY 7300GS (256MB, up to 512 with TC)

Sometimes the mouse cursor disappears from the middle of the screen and appears in the top right corner

With previous releases of the driver my system used to freeze each time I move a 3d window (glxgears for example) on the screen. Actually I cannot replicate this problem.

If I open 6 glxgears process the system hard locks immediatly (no log messages, no oops, no messages on the serial console)

With nv driver I have no problems at all

Hi Netllama / Zander

The problem persists with the 100.14.11 x86_64 Nvidia drivers from the given link.
This time the freeze happens very quickly, so I am not getting enough time to generate the bug report, but i will try again.

I think this workaround is not working for us, MS-7191 Board and XFX 7300 GS with TC. Did u forget to apply the workaround in 64 bit driver source code or something? ;-)

@luke.davis2007: Are you sure that this driver works? What is your hardware configuration?

Regards
Chaitanya
