Bug report: 455.23.04 - Kernel Panic due to NULL pointer dereference

OH, the nvidia drivers are open source now? Geez, guess I missed something!

Follow your psychiatric doctors orders :p

“Just saying stuff like this would never fly in windows.”
*
*
An end user comparing Windows to Linux is like comparing Oranges to Dreaming. Yes Windows and Linux are comparable products at Market.
However…
even though Open Source and Closed Source Software do coexist in the same market place they are based in separate realities that are at a minimum, both perfectly diametrically opposed philosophical / economic ecosystems.
*
The most critical attributes of these Closed Source and Open Source philosophical / economic ecosystems are that;
Closed source ecosystems are conducive to monopoly.
Open Source Ecosystems are adverse to monopoly.
*
How is this even related to nVidia Unix Drivers???
Well Windows is a closed sourced product and presented to market entry point at CO$T in a “finished” state to the End User.".
This “finished” state has unfortunately set Market expectation by the majority of End Users.(Marketing)
*
Linux is Open Sourced and presented to market entry point at NO COST but in an un-configured and non-integrated state.
The End user is FREE to configure and integrate the Linux Operating System to their specific hardware OR pay an Open Source Enterprise sole trader or Company to provide that service or product for them.
*
Linux as an open source software product is not supposed to work “Out of Box”. Nor should it ever " work out of Box"
This “Work out of Box” philosophy is a contamination from the closed source economy in which it is a product requirement and is at polar opposites to the core ecosystem driver of the Open Source Economy.
*
Correctly and exactly integrating and configuring Linux to a specific hardware platform is well beyond the realisation of most. Secureboot, CSM, DMA Buffer, Numa, IOMMU is about 1/800ths of the settings, parameters …and furthermore whatevers that need to be configured and integrated on a base linux OS. The Bios has to be set to the kernel, The kernel to the bios, the firmware and drivers to the kernel and the bios and then the DE to the driver, firmware, kernel and bios. Not forgetting the 50+ plus sub branches to each of those.
With another 300+ issues with varying system PCI-e configs and the like.

  • The nVidia Unix Driver requires:
  • correct system voltages(vac),
  • All system hardware benching at ManSpec.
  • All System hardware bookmatched and compatible as per ManSpec.
  • The nVidia driver Installed as per Man Spec… Not distro suggests or reddit forum posts or website tutorials.
  • Installed as per the nVidia driver Man Spec WhitePaper
  • A correctly configured bios, kernel, “Linux OS” DE.

I have many systems all with widely varying hardware configurations under my duty of care.
And all of them have outstanding stability, uptime, and performance.
All of them running nvidia.
They started running by the book shortly after I started reading the book.
(note: Yes, desktops and servers have differing metric definitions of uptime.
not that it matters here but someone always mentions it.)

Re: Linux Torvalds nVidia closed source comment.
I wonder if nVidia Corp. recognised that Microsoft was weaponizing Open Source.
Take a look at AMD / Pluton processors.
Microsofts stated plan in 2007 was to centralise the internet.
All Hail iAGPU Edge2Cloud personal computing 2022.

Lastly, please consider this…
In the Matrix,
If Neo entered into a Flame-War with Trinity and Morpheus every time they they tried to explain to him a different reality reality.
That story would have ended real quick.
but instead Neo chose to …

Your analogy doesn’t fit. If you want to argue at least learn how.

Driver version 460.X has not fixed the issue as NVIDIA claimed in this thread.

Here is my report, not that you will do anything with it:

I have driver 440. I updated to the latest after 5 months as I thought they would have fixed it by now since the new kernel update. They clearly haven’t.

Seriously, I’m starting to think the people who are still defending nvidia are actually paid shills. What kind of normal person with a functional brain and sees what is actually happening is still defending them?

If nvidia REALLY wanted “bug reports” as they keep saying they do. HINT!!!

THEY JUST WANT TO SHUT US UP.

The global market for PCs total over 1 billion PCs. (Actually way more but I’ll give chuck nvidia another bone, dumb ik)

Linux market share is around 3% (Linux Desktop Market Share Peaked to All-Time High in June)

Also probably way more as Linux users are not the type to share this sort of stuff and participate in surveys.

https://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/videocard/
Nvidia has about 75% of GPUs on steam. I’ll again go for a lower number: 70%.

1000000000*0.03
            30000000
 . * .7
            21000000

That is 20M++ users on the LOW END!!!

Do you know how they can get bug reports?

Put a warning message on install.

1 LINE! Here I’ll help

echo "Driver 440+ are buggy and causes crashes, please report this to the forum if you see anything. Not that we are gonna do anything lmao dumbass" >> $install_script

Or send out a email.

There is 20M+ of us affected by this bug. Even if just .00001 of users reported this would be 200 bug reports!!! And lets just say A LOT MORE than .00001 of people would be angry if they knew nvidia was causing this.

At the price of $100 USD a GPU that is 2 BILLION THEY HAVE TAKEN FROM US. (also far too low)

THERE IS ZERO EXCUSE. THE TERRIBLE LINUX SUPPORT AND NOW THIS!

The only reason I can think of why nvidia hasn’t fixed it is that they either:

  • just don’t care
  • bad PR if they actually admitted they messed up

Looking at all the bug reports, where this is happening in the kernel and systems where this bug doesn’t occur, I get the feeling the problem might be kernel preemption. Ubuntu and Fedora, e.g., don’t use preemptible kernels. Does Arch provide non-preemptible kernel builds to check?

This user reports experiencing the bug on Kubuntu though.

Ok, I missed that. So I guess it’s back to the drawing board.

I have seen certain posts on this thread describe how running chromium with “–use-gl=desktop” has protected against kernel bugs. I personally have found this method to work for months until yesterday while in a video call playing GeoGuessr. I had another crash similar to the one I posted about before, even though I had “–use-gl=desktop” as one of my chromium flags at the time.

What could be related though was my resetting my chromium settings that afternoon due to an unrelated issue. I’m pretty sure I restored all the previous settings I had before the reset (and my flags were untouched), but funnily enough, the YouTube playback issues I experienced before with “–use-gl=desktop” (which I mentioned in my previous post and more in depth here) also disappeared. So either, something in that reset caused chromium to ignore my “–use-gl=desktop” flag, or a series of other changes to chromium/nvidia that day (despite no package updates in almost a week) caused my --use-gl=desktop problems to disappear and for the kernel bug to reappear.

I’m just very confused right now, so I was wondering whether any of the other users in this chain who have been using “–use-gl=desktop” experienced anything similar.

I’ve been experiencing the same bug as the above for months as well, occurring several times a week if not daily. The only thing that spared my sanity was that I’ve spent the last few months mostly booted up in my Windows partition. This also means that I can’t pinpoint exactly when it started for me, but it likely coincides with the others, either 455 or 450.

The most recent occurrence happened while I had most of my apps closed, playing a timed round in Geoguessr in Chromium. The time before that was while running a JS user script in Chromium. Before that, every case I can remember was with an abundance of tabs open in Chromium so I had assumed it was an OOM issue, but in retrospect, it might just have increased the chance of the bug happening, such as having multiple YouTube tabs playing.

I haven’t read the entire discussion thus far. Is the common thread here that Chromium triggers the bug? Would switching to a non-Chromium browser be a workaround for this in the interim? It sounds like the different flags and GPU settings passed to Chromium aren’t effective.

kernel: 5.10.16-arch1-1
nvidia driver: 460.39
GPU: GTX 1060

As an aside, I’d like to +1 the sentiment that this is an embarrassment. I thought maybe nvidia was finally getting their stuff together with getting the work necessary to support Wayland done, but instead I’m dealing with this. I’ve been running Arch for about a decade, back when it was still known as being unstable, but aside from a few instances of configuration issues on my part, all of stability issues I’ve encountered were nvidia related. This might be the third time I have to pin my nvidia/kernel version to avoid a problem, and the last time this happened it took over half a year for the issue to get resolved. Even the registration process for this site is a disgrace.

No, I have seen exactly the same problem in Firefox. Chromium may be either more popular, or it uses GPU for more of its functionality, however crashes happen on systems that never run Chromium.

That has been my experience too. Been using Arch for a couple of years and the majority of issues I’ve had have been bad drivers from NVIDIA.

Have to admin, since running Arch, apart from this particular issue, haven’t had any other issues with Nvidia.

Nvidia, in general, has been great on Linux, less of a pain than AMD/ATI.

Uptime has been 11 days so far.

Turned off “Use hardware acceleration when available” in chrome/chromium.

There are two kinds of Linux kernel in (K)Ubuntu: generic and lowlatency. I’m running the latter, and it has CONFIG_PREEMPT=y it its config.

However, I can’t say I’m seeing this bug often. I had it once or twice.

Thanks for clarifying, Lastique. So this might be a clue after all.

I had this bug too a couple of times and I also have preemption enabled. It’s hard to reproduce for sure but the stack trace should really help the NVIDIA devs. Even if it’s just a workaround, would be still better than this crash killing the driver completely. I can still SSH to my PC but there’s no way to reload the driver or restart Xorg (which is stuck in D-state IIRC and by definition can’t be killed).

I use Debian Testing and I compile the kernel myself. I know it’s not a good thing when we’re talking about reproducing bugs but I only slightly change the default Debian config. I set the system timer to 1000 Hz and set CONFIG_PREEMPT to y so the latency is the lowest possible. I mainly do this so that PulseAudio doesn’t skip, it was an issue years ago, not sure if it’s still like that but I’m used to updating my kernel myself and there were no issues related to it. Plus, I’m not alone with this bug and the stack trace was identical to all those already posted here. For the sake of completeness I’ll also post mine:

Jan 29 23:41:37 homecomp kernel: [634108.787087] Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed!

It happened almost a month ago when I was just browsing web and upon switching a tab or something like that Xorg completely froze, mouse cursor stopped moving, keyboard didn’t respond etc. As I said the system itself was alive but unusable. The driver version I used at the moment was 460.39.

Thank you. For those who missed it, @generix has suggested that kernel preemption might be a necessary factor in this issue presenting itself. @mangamaniac1 since you are able to reproduce the bug (I cannot; I don’t get it very often) are you able to use a kernel that doesn’t have preemption, and report back whether the crashes still happen?

The crash has happened when I was watching a video on VLC.

distribution: ArchLinux
driver: nvidia-460.39
kernel: 5.10.16-zen1-1-zen
GPU: GeForce GTX 970 (GM204-A)
CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz

I have managed to ssh to the console from a second machine and collect the logs using the following command: sudo nvidia-bug-report.sh --safe-mode --extra-system-data.

The original version of the script has hung so I have used a version posted by @wamogo5042

I hope you will find something useful in these logs.

@kamiox
I think you forgot to attach the log to your message.
