Intermittent Freezing 5.11.11-1-default GeForce 16 Series

New installation of OpenSuse with updates and drivers from official Nvidia repository.

Am only running fluxbox window manager to try and isolate potential window manager issues. xfce4 was previously also freezing.

Any quick look into settings greatly appreciated. Per previous thread [0]

[0] Intermittent Freezing OpenSuse Tumbleweed 15.2 20210401 Kernel 5.11.6-1-default | GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER

I found that default kernel modules included with the kernel were overwriting version in /proc/driver/nvidia/version when attempting to run latest beta version 465.19.01 [1] for example

[1] Current graphics driver releases

Currently as follows. Any look into attached bug report log greatly appreciated.

cat /proc/driver/nvidia/version
NVRM version: NVIDIA UNIX x86_64 Kernel Module 460.67 Thu Mar 11 00:11:45 UTC 2021
GCC version: gcc version 10.2.1 20210401 [revision 892024d4af83b258801ff7484bf28f0cf1a1a999] (SUSE Linux)

Although might be a reach, with this new install, am currently testing whether this may be a bug with the linux kernel or driver where separate nvme devices are mounted (in my case, had nvme0 as boot and install partition with nvme1 as dedicated /home partition).

currently able to toggle via entries in fstab

UUID=xxxxxe-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxx /home btrfs subvol=/@/home


UUID=xxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxx /home btrfs defaults 0 0

Also, attempted to install OpenSuse Leap with kernel versions 5.10.x although machine would not boot with this version no matter what settings were changed.

There’s nothing nvidia related in the logs. Since spontaneous reboots are observed, I’d guess it’s a general hardware defect, mainboard/memory/psu.

Understood. Thanks for checking it out. I will do some more debugging. Regards
