dmesg

Since few weeks i have strange problems with my computer. In fact maybe i have them more than few weeks but i'm looking and trying to solve it just 2-3 weeks.

Computer (gdm and over part) is hanging from time to time. I cannot reproduce it always but most times i need just open few windows and wait. Same time computer is working, I can connect to it via ssh and everything is working normal except i cannot poweroff computer because it hangs.

What i find few days ago was broken capacitors on my GfX card, i replaced them but it did not help.

Sometimes (not very often) it ends with Kernel Panic.

i'm using:
05:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation NV43 [GeForce 6600] (rev a2)

kernel: 3.12.5-gentoo
xf86-video-nouveau-1.0.10
libdrm-2.4.50
mesa-9.2.4
xorg-server-1.14.3

Looks like there are some GART timeout errors? Not sure what those mean, but can you try booting with "nouveau.config=NvPCIE=0" added to your kernel cmdline?

First of all in the meantime i've bought new GfX card (also nvidia) and it is working fine so rest of my hardware is probably ok.
maybe the old one is broken. No idea how to test it.

I've added nouveau.config=NvPCIE=0 option. This time it died in a little other way.
I'm attaching dmesg output. 

The last line (about gnome shell) appeard there after i've tried:

# systemctl status gdm

with this output (I don't know if it is interesting to you).
