Default X freeze with Linux SMP kernel + 8800GTX

Hi:

My X windows always freeze on Linux 2.6.9-22.EL-smp kernel + 8800GTX. I try the latest version driver 100.14.19 but make no sense.

When I login and startx, everthing is well. But once I run "glxgear" or "glxinfo", or Ctrl+ALT+Backspace, the X window freeze. The same problem occurred when I finish running "nvidia-bug-report.sh".

The problem disappear when I boot Linux system using 2.6.9-22.EL (no smp) mode.

The bug report is enclosed and any help/comment are apprieciated in advance.

Regards.

Default Re: X freeze with Linux SMP kernel + 8800GTX

did you tried disable your Composite Extension ?
i have similar problem, freezes while composite extension is enabled
so i need to disable this in xorg.conf:

Section "Extensions"
# Option "Composite" "Enabled"
Option "Composite" "Disabled"
EndSection

i thing that nvidia corp will ask you if you have latest Motherboard drivers (but in my opinion it has nothing to do with those freezes, only this is because of beta driver 100.14.xx because if you have older graphic card 7xxx and you can use stable driver 1.0.xxxx, you wont have lockups even if you will enable composite E. and use compiz-fusion

many people still have similar bug, and this is not because hardware, this is because of software, - beta nvidia driver

so best solution is buying for example geforce 7800 or 7950 gt and use stable driver, or blu radeon 2600xt and wait until they will include aixgl into new driver....

Thanks for your reply, but I can not find any section "Extensions" in my xorg.conf. Is option "Composite" turned on as default setting ? If yes, I will try to disable it manually in my conf.

The RHEL4 release that you're using has many known bugs which can result in the type of instability that you're reporting. See the driver README's discussion of cache aliasing for more information. Please update to the latest RHEL4 release.
