Hi all,

My nvidia drivers segfault since a couple of weeks now and I don't know where to start:

Code:

Is the nouveau driver (module or built into the kernel) present at your system? (maybe from a kernel switch, ...)
I had a similar problem a few weeks ago.
For nvidia cards either "nouveau" or "nvidia" driver can be used not both.

Hi Markus09,

Yes the nouveau driver is compiled as a module into the kernel. But I already blacklist it in "/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf"

I'm compiling a new kernel without nouveau to see if it works.

For information, in order to prevent the segfault I have:
    - start without graphique environment
    - the most weird thing is that I MUST blacklist the NVIDIA driver into "/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf" ! ([blacklist nvidia, blacklist rivafb, blacklist nvidiafb
    - Finally, I can start gdm without problem


I will update in a couple of minutes to see if it works without nouveau into the kernel

Best.

ok, rebooted without nouveau compiled and same result. If I do not blacklist the nvidia module it segfault.

Based on that callstack, the nVidia driver is buggy. You will need to seek help from nVidia, find a version that is not buggy, or permanently blacklist the nVidia driver.

Hi,

I think you are right but cannot find a working version anymore. I would like to switch to nouveau but I was still not able to get X starting with it.
I will investigate a bit more.

Best,
Jerome

There's something odd going on.

First, you say you had nvidia and nouveau. That's fine, but problem is to be expected UNLESS you blacklist one of the two. Otherwise, it's fine.

Then, you said you compiled the kernel WITHOUT nouveau, and blacklisted nvidia. Taking into account that you have set VIDEO_CARDS="nouveau nvidia" in your make conf, that would have left you without access to X at all, since you haven't compiled "vesa" or any other alternative driver.

So, you either failed to blacklist "nvidia" OR you had still "nouveau" installed, right? You can find that by using lsmod.

Now, a few things you might have missed:

  • I never tried, but I don't think you can blacklist a module that's been compiled statically into the kernel. Please, if someone knows for sure confirm or deny this. In the while, and while this settles down, I would compile nouveau as a module, and not into the kernel.
  • eselect opengl list must match x11 for nouveau and nvidia for nvidia, otherwise, you are screwed.
  • nouveau has a tendency to crash when USE="vdpau vaapi", so, if you truly want to get it working (well, somehow), disable those. It's far from being the only problem with nouveau though...
  • MAKE 100% SURE you move xorg.conf or xorg.conf.d/ out of scope when using nouveau, otherwise, you are screwed.
  • when trying nouveau you should use the latest kernel from kernel.org (3.17 as of yesterday), and the xf86-video-nouveau-9999, libdrm-9999 and mesa-9999 from the x11 overlay, that is, if you want to have a minimal chance of them working at all. Bugfixes are rare, but releases are even rarer so...

In the past, I already tested nouveau without success so I leaved a conf which could allow me to test from time to time.
I usually blacklist nouveau & agpgart when I use nvidia. I still have nvidia listed here but the line is commented.

This is the point, if I do not blacklist nvidia, it 's get loaded at boot time and segfault. If I blacklist, it is then not loaded at boot time BUT is loaded properly if I start gdm for instance (my xorg.conf explicitly specify the nvidia driver in this case)

The is my main issue.... and I cannot solve it.


As far as nouveau is concerned, I thought that it was in a better shape now.... so I would really prefer to solve my nvidia issue...

Best,
Jerome

Ok, now I got it. Then, it indeed seems like a bug in the binary driver. Sorry to have spammed the thread. ;)

Hi all,

I tested a couple of versions and I cannot find any of them working.... so I think that the problem is somewhere else but I don't know where....
I even create an ebuild for the latest official stable nvidia release (340.46).

stuck.... :(

Best,
Jerome
