Description Stefan Trenker 2009-08-02 12:43:01 UTC
Hai all,

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad notebook shipped with a nVidia Corporation Quadro NVS 140M graphics adatper.

After an upgrade of the Nvidia proprietary driver x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-185.18.14 to x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-185.18.29 and later on to x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-185.18.31 my xserver hangs during startup.

When i compare the last working (185.18.14 driver) Xorg.0.log to the non-working (185.18.29 and 185.18.31) it seems as if the newer drivers hand during setting the display resolution (the non-working xserver log-files all stop at the same place and the next line of the working xserver log-file says it sets the display resolution).

I did not change anyting in my xorg-conf etc. I just updated the ebuild.

Reproducible: Always

I think bug #279588 is the same.
Comment 6 Doug Goldstein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-08-03 03:25:20 UTC
The solution is to use the nvidia-drivers-180.60 version for the time being. You'll likely have to wait until a 190.x series is out to have this fixed.
