Description Andy Matteson 2008-04-08 18:47:12 UTC
Overview:

With a GeForce 7800GT card, the nv driver does not work.  Shortly after I login to gdm, the whole screen corrupts and crashes.  Pressing alt sysrq+k results in the image shifting over to the right by a slight amount.  The system is quite frozen.

The nouveau and nvidia proprietary drivers work on my card.  vesa is also fine.

Ubuntu bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-nv/+bug/62230

Steps to Reproduce:

Start x server with nv driver on a 7800GT.  Or, use Ubuntu Hardy LiveCD.

Actual Results:

The screen is corrupt and the system is basically frozen.

Expected Results:

The desktop shouldn't freeze.

Build Date & Platform:

It has always happened with the nv driver on my card, at least with the Ubuntu LiveCDs that I've used.  I recall SUSE also having an issue but I believe they don't use nv anymore for this card.

Comment 2 Corbin Simpson 2011-09-14 14:03:46 UTC
xf86-video-nv has been officially unmaintained for a bit now, and we are
closing all -nv bugs. If your problem was not addressed, and -nv is still
broken, please try xf86-video-nouveau. Thank you.
