Default Re: 100.14.09 with 8600GT - random lockups

Well I swapped my 8600GT for a mates 6600GT and all is well now.

Anyone know when this issue will be addressed ? The next driver release I am hoping!

i dont know if nvidia corp is reading those news :-)

to nvidia corp: if you still dont know this bug, simply use at least 8500GT geforce and use also compiz enabled, (try compiz-fusion) and you will see the lockups !
thx

Not even that is needed.

I turned off AIGLX, still freezes!!

Actually, still freezes with nv driver.
Oh.... hmmm so not entirely nvidia here in my case. What the heck else could it be!!

you turned off aixgl, but did you disabled COMPOSITE extension in xorg conf ?
check if you have DISABLED (in my case that helps)

This is strange, but in my case (with a GeForce 7300 LE), 100.14.09 works fine but upgrading to 100.14.11 causes the hangups described here. I wonder if it has something to do with the chipsets in these different cards only working with very specific driver versions?

BTW, here's the thread I've been updating with my 100.14.11 issues:

Interesting. I havent any mention of composite module being loaded in xorg.conf but in the Xorg.0.log it states it is being loaded.

Any more info on this ? I might just be googling this.

Place the following in your xorg.conf file to disable the Composite extension:

Code:
Section "Extensions"
    Option         "Composite" "Disable"
EndSection
I believe it's enabled by default if there's no entry in xorg.conf.
