Description Evan Teran 2014-04-11 21:18:34 UTC
A few days ago I updated the nvidia-drivers on my system to the latest that Gentoo considers stable. Unfortunately, since then I've been regularly experiencing kernel NULL pointer dereferences. This typically happens when using chromium (I expect due to OpenGL usage?).

Additionally, I have tried installing the beta drivers as well (337.12) with the same results.

I plan to install the latest gentoo-sources kernel to see if it somehow addresses the issue. If it has any effect, I will add my findings to this report.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
install latest stable x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers
use computer as normal, typically the issue occurs while browsing using chromium
