Default Re: 7-current. is it possible to compile?

" Could you get a backtrace using ddb?" - Huh ?

Thank goddess, the FreeBSD Handbook leaves nothing unexplained.

I'd build my Kernel as sleek as possible - which is obviously of no use right now . . .
<< building a Kernel with debugging features as we speak - gimme a couple of hours to sort this out.

Default Argh

Had to re-install the system, all those panics left the box in an unusable state.
Did a new build- kernel/world today, and it's not rebooting / freezing anymore.
The X-server starts, the Nvidia logo flashes briefly, and the server segfaults with the good old signal 11
The Xorg.log shows no other errors than that.
a cat/dev/nvidia0 only shows the same signal 11 error.

Out of interests sake i tried the 9746 driver from the ports, and it shows the old behavior
Freezing - crashing - rebooting etc.
Backtracing is not possible, coz the db> prompt is frozen and there's no core dump.
Building an X-server with debugging symbols fails at the moment.
My C - knowledge is too limited to deal with all the error messages.
I have to admit that I'm at a loss here.

( reading - learning - cursing)

Default Re: 7-current. is it possible to compile?

Hello, this is my first post in this forum and i have the same problem.

I updated my system to FreeBSD 7-CURRENT yesterday, built all xorg 7.2 ports and nvidia-driver, but when i start the X and try to go back to console (via crtl+alt+fx) the system freeze.

I also tried to install all nvidia drivers versions without success, all of them give me the same problem.

Anyone know what could be?

Thanks

Default Re: 7-current. is it possible to compile?

I can confirm that this driver does indeed fix the issue that I too was seeing with -current (jun 20th kernel). Whew! Now I don't have to fsck 300Gb of disk each time I exit Xorg

Curiously as I dug into things I realized that x11/nvidia-driver is a port of the 96xx series driver but not this "bleeding edge" driver. I'm not sure why. I haven't asked the ports mailing list yet. But as Zander helpfully said, the driver compiles and runs flawlessly on -current (as of Jun 22 kernel), so the stage is set for success once 7.0-CURRENT -> 7.0-RELEASE "real soon now." Thanks Zander for your input on this thread!

Yes, the last driver fixed the freeze problem, thanks!

Ok, fine - but what's with people like me, with a GeForce 2 MX400 and limited to driver version 9631?

Default Confirmed . .

. . not only working - it's faster, too.
Still had to symlink ../xorg/modules on a fresh X-build, but that's not an issue.

I welcome!

Xorg 7.2
7.0 CURRENT
Geforce 2 Mx400 9639
on leaving from Xorg or "Cat /dev/nvidia0" the system is overloaded!

This problem in Xorg 7.2 or freebsd 7.0 CURRENT??? (I STABLE did not try, yet a long ago there were Xorg6.9, an update in 6.2 will occupy a lot of time...)
is it possible to correct? what is the matter?

log is ok

Default Re: 7-current. is it possible to compile?

I'm running 7.0-CURRENT-200706 and I did manage to get the 100.14.11 driver to compile and install by commenting out the #ifdef and creating the xorg/modules symlink.

I haven't got a problem starting, using or quitting X, but where it locks and panics for me is if I try to use the 3D accelerator (e.g. run a 3D screensaver to test). It freezes, panics and reboots. The message is:

"spin locks can only use msleep_spin"

@Grogan: is this a recent regression? Please provide the complete panic message (if possible, with a KDB backtrace).
