Default nvidia-100.14.09 and Xorg 100% CPU

I am running nvidia driver (livna) on Fedora 7 (64 bit) and frequently Xorg goes 100% cpu. I have attached nvidia-bug-report.log file.

Thanks in advance

I have a few questions:
0) Do you have a reliable means of consistently reproducing this problem?
1) Have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS?
2) Does this problem persist if you disable the Composite extension in xorg.conf ?
3) Was the attached bug report generated while X was hung?
4) Does this problem persist if you're not using vmware?

thanks,
Lonni

0. Unfortunately not. But it occurs often.

1. I have received this laptop a week ago.

2. Not tried by disabling Composite.

3. The report was taken while Xorg was consuming 100% of cpu (System was functional)

4. Vmware modules are loaded but, no guest OS was running at that time. I have noticed X hanging while running vmware couple of times. Again, i do not have a reproducible case.

Default Re: nvidia-100.14.09 and Xorg 100% CPU

Hi there,
I upgraded to Fedora Core 7 this weekend and I'm now experiencing the same behaviour. I've also experienced several X crashes since the update
X takes 100% of the CPU. I'm running on an ASUS A6000 Laptop with a dual AMD64 CPU.
My GPU is
(--) PCI: (0:10:3) nVidia Corporation MCP51 PMU rev 163, Mem @ 0xdcec0000/18
(--) PCI:*(2:0:0) nVidia Corporation G70 [GeForce Go 7600] rev 161, Mem @ 0xde000000/24, 0xc0000000/28, 0xdd000000/24, I/O @ 0xdc00/7, BIOS @ 0xdf6e0000/17

My X.org version is xorg-x11-server 1.3.0.0-9.fc7
My NVIDIA driver version is NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-100.14.09
I'm not running VMWare

If i can provide more useful information, let me know !
Thanks

Default Re: nvidia-100.14.09 and Xorg 100% CPU

do you uses compiz/beryl activated on boot ? (and shutdown ?)

Did you tryed to disable aiglx with this in xorg.conf
Section "ServerFlags"
Option "AIGLX" "off"
EndSection

Actually i have the problem solved with this and enabling composite with my quadro fx500 (not sure it is enabled by default with fedora 6/7)

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection


(i know this prevent to have the above issue with previous nvidia driver version and beryl, not sure i can work with compiz but you may be interested in
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=77030

Also i wonder if it is mandatory to have acpid installed and started on boot to get the driver work... or using (to disable if acpid is not running):
Option "ConnectToAcpid" "0"
If this is mandatory, we (at rpm.livna.org - mean firewingl and I) will consider to add acpid as a requirement... and set aiglx off by default for all livna users with nvidia (100.xx.xx, 96xx, legacy ?!)

I have downgraded the driver to "NVIDIA Linux x86_64 Kernel Module 1.0-9639" and it looks stable so far. However, i have "AIGLX on" and "Composite Enable" in xorg.conf. Is that an issue with 100.14.xx version of drivers?

Thanks

I have downgraded the driver to 96xx and disabled AIGLX. Again, X becomes choppy and unusable. After restart, find the following in the /var/log/messages file.

Jun 26 08:58:59 rallavagu kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 8, Channel 00000002
Jun 26 08:59:35 rallavagu kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 26, Ch 0000001e M 00000194 D beef0201 intr 00400000
Jun 26 08:59:35 rallavagu kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 29, L0 -> L0

I am running Beryl.

Not sure if there is a fix to this. I have other three machines with nvidia driver and i do not have this problem.

if you uses Beryl, do you force it to use Nvidia and composite ?
(with the above setting ?)

I've experienced thoses problems (with 100.xx.xx serie).
But not anymore with these settings

I have set everything to "Automatic" except for Rendering which is set to "indirect rendering". Do you like me to test with "Rendering Platform" set to "Nvidia"?

That's it, then you may also need to use cow in beryl (with composite activated)

I've noticed that nvidia 100.xx.xx can use acpid, that would be fine if it can be activated also...
yum install acpid (if not already activated)
chkconfig --level 345 acpid on
