Default Re: Random freezes on Fedora 7

Ironically, after adding 'idle=poll' (as instructed in the 'stability problems' sticky topic) to my kernel boot parameters, I haven't encountered a freeze yet with 100.14.11! <fingers crossed>

Man, no more than 30 seconds went by after sending this when it froze again! So, nevermind on the kernel parameter being a fix although it did seem to prolong the freeze a little bit. However, due to the random nature of these freezes, it could just simply be my perception of time before this last freeze.

Back to the drawing boards. At this point I believe I've tried everything suggested in the sticky posts and am still having this problem. Any suggestions?

kyleki,
I have a few questions:
0) If you disable the Composite extension in xorg.conf, does that help at all?
1) Have you verified that you're using the latest motherboard BIOS?

thanks,
Lonni

I've disabled the Composite extension (as you can see by the updated bug report log attached here) as well as upgraded my bios and I'm still having the same problem. PPracer froze in the middle of playing through the second of two races.

My motherboard is an ASUS P5NSLI. The BIOS version I was running earlier today was 1302 which has now been upgraded to 1401.

Kyleki -

I note in your X log that DPMS is enabled. Just a thought, have you tried setting this to false.

Are you running a screensaver?

No I haven't tried that, but I can when I get into the office later.

Yes, the gnome-screensaver with the extra xscreensaver stuff installed as well (xscreensaver-extras-gss & xscreensaver-gl-extras-gss). I have it set to 'Random'.

I'm experiencing a hang while using the machine, however; not while the machine is idle and a screensaver is starting up so I'm not too sure how DPMS could be involved, but I'm willing to try anything at this point. I'll post my results of this setup later today.

I believe I'm doing this right, but for some reason, I keep getting the following in my Xorg.0.log file:

(II) Loading extension DPMS
(**) Option "dpms" "off"
(**) NVIDIA(0): DPMS enabled

Does this mean I'm not specifying the option properly?

(New nvidia-bug-log with these settings in attachment)

DPMS can only be turned on in xorg.conf. See the xset man page for more details.

I thought that's what I was doing with:

Code:
Section "Monitor"

 ### Comment all HorizSync and VertSync values to use DDC:
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "Unknown"
        ModelName    "Unknown"
        HorizSync    30.0 - 110.0
        VertRefresh  50.0 - 150.0
        Option       "DPMS" "off"
EndSection
Am I specifying the option wrong in my xorg.conf file?

You're trying to disable an option which can't be disabled via xorg.conf. Re-read my last comment, and review what you're doing.

I'm sorry. I must have misunderstood:

How are 'xset' settings preserved? What file are they written to? Until I get that figured out, I've setup an autostart 'xset -dpms' command in my gnome session.

I'll try this out and post my results.

I've now got DPMS disabled (as you can see in the attached nvidia-bug-report_new3 log), but I still froze up after about 15 minutes.

I also thought it might be helpful to see a bug-report-log from my working setup (running 100.14.09). I've attached this as nvidia-bug-report_works.log.gz.

Any other things for me to try?
