Description Matthias Nagel 2016-01-07 14:17:10 UTC
The display randomly gets corrupted with randomly moving block artifacts. This means the display looks like a chess board with every other block being either completely black or semi-transparent. In the latter case I can still see the normal desktop but it appears like being looked at trough a 50%-gray filter. The other blocks of the "chess board" are good. If the display content changes (e.g. mouse movement), the "arrangement of the chess board" changes.

I can still work normally, start desktop applications, click around and shut down the PC the normal way. But VT switching does not work anymore.

The crash seems to occur more frequently, if I play videos (mplayer or Flash), but this is not a requirement.

The crash does not occur, if I use the blob firmware (nouveau.config="NvGrUseFw=1").

I also reported bug #93629 at the same time. Both problems occur in turns. I do not know if they are related, because the symptoms are completely different, but they both disappear using the blob firmware.
