Description Joe Peterson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-10-15 19:09:09 UTC
When running ImageMagick's convert utility, the process will sometimes hang, using 100% CPU.  Ctrl-C will not interrupt the program (it must be killed).  It is somewhat random, but after converting a series of 10 to 50 files or so, it will eventually happen.  With nvidia-drivers-285.03, this problem does not occur.

The command line is of the form:

    convert -type Grayscale -depth 8 -density 144.0 -trim svg/12-048_12-043.svg png/12-048.png

While convert is hung, using gdb to get a backtrace shows this (if a non-stripped version would be helpful, I can try to obtain one, but the pertinent thing is the first line):

This is what led me to try an earlier version of nvidia-drivers.  Note that Nvidia's web site about this version ( lists "Fixed a bug causing some applications to hang on exit." as one of the items *fixed* in this version, which is ironically what may, indeed, be happening (since the image that convert is producing at the time seems complete, even though the process is hung).

Comment 1 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2011-10-15 23:59:05 UTC
What if you run convert with LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 set?

Nope...I tried setting this in the shell before running the convert process, but it still hangs.
