Default NVS 400 crash/freeze within 60 seconds

Hi folks,

Just built a new beastie based around a Tyan 5000XT motherboard, using a quadro NVS 400. I'm looking to drive 4 viewsonic LCD displays of the same type/model. The OS is Debian Linux 4.1. lspci indicates that the two GPU's are seen correctly. The kernel is custom-built using 2.6.22.

I installed the xorg drivers from NVidia and let nvidia-xconfig create a new xorg.conf file.

At this point, startx or allowing the machine to boot with gdm gives me the same result: The system functions but within 60 seconds (and never longer), it either freezes or reboots. There's nothing in the Xorg.0.log file to indicate what the problem is. For the short time that the driver is functioning, the display sure looks nice.

Note that the xorg.conf file is simply the one that's generated by the nvida-xconfig utility. Nothing yet is configured for twinview, the other GPU (except to enumerate it in the config, but do nothing else) or even another monitor. (Removing the device for the second GPU in the config makes no difference in the result.)

Any hints would be appreciated.

thanks,

sbm

Hi

Thanks, I've just finished going through those (good checklist btw) and still have the same issue.

Here I have attached a couple of files that I hope might be useful.

Thanks,

1.0-9639 is no longer supported for your GPU. You should be using 100.14.11.

However, the real problems are here:
[ 58.088655] PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource #6:20000@d8100000 for 0000:07:00.0
[ 58.088744] PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource #6:20000@d8100000 for 0000:07:04.0
[ 58.091304] PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 0000:00:02.0. Probably buggy MP table.
[ 58.091476] PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 0000:00:03.0. Probably buggy MP table.
[ 58.091568] PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:03.0 to 64
[ 58.091575] PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 0000:00:04.0. Probably buggy MP table.
[ 58.091666] PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:04.0 to 64
[ 58.091673] PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 0000:00:05.0. Probably buggy MP table.
[ 58.091765] PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:05.0 to 64
[ 58.091789] PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 0000:00:06.0. Probably buggy MP table.
[ 58.091881] PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:06.0 to 64
[ 58.091887] PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 0000:00:07.0. Probably buggy MP table.
[ 73.069332] PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 0000:00:08.0. Probably buggy MP table.

Per the sticky posts, you should have updated to the latest released motherboard BIOS. The most likely reason for the problems you're reporting are BIOS/kernel bugs.

Hi

Thanks for the help....hmmm..this is the second motherboard (the first being an IBM) that gives me a similar error regarding PCI resources - but both using Linux 2.6.22. I'm beginning to suspect the kernel, since I've read about quite a lot of PCI resource problems as of late.

I see there's a beta release of the tyan BIOS, maybe I'll give that a try.

Regarding the driver, the 100.14.11 installer states that my GPU is not supported and instead I should use the legacy 93xx version instead.

You're right, sorry about that, I misread and thought that you had an NVS440. The NVS400 is only supported in the 1.0-96xx legacy driver branch, so 1.0-9639 is the latest.

Hi all

Just wanted to post a follow-up so that other folks might benefit.

I took advantage of a Beta release of the Tyan 5000XT (S2696) motherboard, v1.03b. After booting with this BIOS version and with Linux 2.6.22, I still get the same output as netllama isolated in post #4. So it might be that either the BIOS has a bug, or Linux is unable to grok what's going on. I'm tempted to try WinXP to see if that behaviour can be replicated, although I get the suspicion that the NVS 400 may work with it. Otherwise, it will have to make way for some other board/OS combo like a 4500 X2 :-)
