Description Mike Haskell 2010-11-21 04:49:33 UTC
Applications using hardware acceleration crash with the x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-260.* versions. Reverting to 256.53 seems to work, at the expense of bug fixes and any improvements of newer versions, but nothing newer works.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-260.19.21 
2. eselect opengl set nvidia
3. run x session
4. execute glxinfo / glxgears / any other application using the glx api
Actual Results:  
Segmentation fault (SIGSEGV) on any application using the glx api. this is the best case scenario... so far I haven't seen full X crashes, yet.

For example:
(gdb) r
Starting program: /usr/bin/glxgears 
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh.  The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0xb73b7265 in ?? () from /usr/lib/
(gdb) back
#0  0xb73b7265 in ?? () from /usr/lib/
Cannot access memory at address 0xb

$ ldd /usr/bin/glxgears =>  (0xffffe000) => /usr/lib/opengl/nvidia/lib/ (0xb7624000) => /lib/ (0xb75fe000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb74dc000) => /lib/ (0xb74c2000) => /lib/ (0xb7364000) => /usr/lib/opengl/nvidia/lib/ (0xb7362000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb5cb1000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb5ca1000) => /lib/ (0xb5c9d000)
	/lib/ (0xb7718000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb5c81000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb5c7d000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb5c77000)

Expected Results:  
Applications using hw acceleration/GLX should work instead of crashing, when using the newest drivers.

I'm using a vanilla kernel.

Created attachment 254977 [details]
My X.Org config file.

Added X11 config file. I added the DRI section trying to figure out if this was causing the problem, but it didn't help.

It's a dual screen setup, however this has never been a problem, provided that the installed version of the drivers works :)
Comment 2 Harris Landgarten 2010-11-22 00:32:34 UTC
Don't know if this is related but I am running 269.19.21 on multiple monitors and on my last restart Xorg was hanging after loading the nvidia driver and nothing would display. Seems like the graphics hardware locked up. After a power down and wait 30 sec everything started ok.
