[NVE6] GK106 (GeForce GTX 660): Frequent GPU lockups
Assigned to Nouveau Project
I’m getting frequent GPU lockups which always seem to occur when playing video (either via mpv or via flash-plugin). Not sure how to tell whether this affects the 2D driver or the mesa one. Please reassign as you see fit.
The bug manifests as one of the following:
- X screen freezes, no response when switching VTs, only SysRq+REISUB works.
- X screen freezes, VT switch works, system can be rebooted by userspace tools.
The common denominator in the reported errors seems to be: «nouveau E[ PFIFO][0000:01:00.0]» with either «write fault», «read fault», which is then followed by «PGRAPH engine fault».
I’ll follow-up with a few relevant log files.
My current setup runs on:
* Linux 3.16.2
* Xorg 1.16.0
