Can you try xorg-x11-drv-nv-2.0.0-2.fc7, which includes nv-2.0.0-hang-fix.patch?
That fixed the hang on my machine.

Comment 3 Jim Cornette 2007-03-23 01:49:12 UTC
I was getting the lockup of the system prior to xorg-x11-drv-nv-2.0.0-2.fc7.
After this driver I get only 800x600. The system eventually crashes. I'll attach
the log related to the crashed system after time.

Not original reporter. This is with version xorg-x11-drv-nv-2.0.0-2.fc7

Comment 5 Jim Cornette 2007-03-23 02:19:30 UTC
Just adding that the action leading to the crash now is the switching to VT screen.

Comment 6 Jim Cornette 2007-03-24 01:54:39 UTC
Just passing on information regarding on the patch that was added. The patch
causes what was supposed to be resolved by the patch. I got lockups with the
patched driver and have good results with no lockup and better resolution with a
rollback to xorg-x11-drv-nv-

I believe this feedback provides information regarding the patched version.
Checking box though not bug reporter originator.

Log for reverted version of the nv driver installed.

for comparison to lowered resolution logs and VT crashing logs. I will change
to VT afterwards to see if I no longer get a crash when changing to a VT.

Comment 8 Jim Cornette 2007-03-24 01:58:29 UTC
No more VT crashing with earlier nv version.

Comment 9 Will Woods 2007-03-24 16:07:40 UTC
Jim, you're looking at a different bug - you've got a crash, not a hang, and it's happening with driver 
2.0.0-2. Please file that bug separately so we don't confuse the two issues.

Comment 10 Jim Cornette 2007-03-25 00:29:52 UTC
Will file separately for the crash. Thanks!

Comment 11 Riku Seppala 2007-04-17 16:52:17 UTC
Not sure if this is the same bug, but my systems hangs too when starting X. HP
laptop with geforce go 7600.

I found out that in my case the problem was this

Comment 14 Adam Jackson 2007-05-11 20:58:20 UTC
Pretty sure Ralf's issue was resolved in 2.0.0-2.  Closing, please reopen if I'm
