Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 217984
Nvidia drivers fail when output is digital
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:50 EST
Description of problem:Nvidia drivers, both supplied and Nvidia supplied cause a
user session crash when any of the extra games attempt to use accelerated video.
This ONLY happens if the attached display uses digital drive. Analog monitors
are ok. It only happens with the current FC6 and not on FC5.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load FC6 into a system with a supported Nvidia display card and DIGITAL output
2.Run any upgrades.
3.Attempt to run any games from extras that use accelerated video.
Actual results:User session crashes returning to LOGIN screen.
Expected results:should run
Additional info:Causes user to be thrown off but doesn't seem to crash X server
This was tried on several machines with 5200 cards. The results were as
described above. It is possible but unlikely that it is an artifact of these
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card. Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
This bug vanished with the installation of the latest posted fixes and APPEARS
to be fixed. Further effort is probably not waranted.
