I’m having an issue where the nvidia kernel module seems to sometimes crash when I run a program using optirun. It never happens just after boot, it only happens when my computer has been on for a few days. When the crash occurs, I’m given a kernel panic screen (see below).
After the crash, my desktop works fine (I switch to it using ctrl-alt-F7) under my intel CPU. However, I can’t run optimus programs anymore (until I reboot):
$ optirun -v --debug glxgears
[63621.164720] [INFO]Configured driver: nvidia
… nothing happens
dmesg - output of the kernel panic:
Xorg.8.log - the xorg log for bumblebee (this is actually from running bumblebee again after the crash):
bumblebee.conf - Bumblebee config file:
xorg.conf.nvidia - Xorg file for nvidia:
This issue was reported to Bumblebee a few months ago, and they concluded that it was a nvidia driver issue:
Sager NP9170 (Clevo P170EM)
GeForce GTX 670M 1.5GB
linux distro: Arch Linux
Linux 3.8.8 (64 bit)
xorg server 1.14.1
nvidia driver 313.30
primus 20130425 (2013-04-25)
I have had this issue ever since I got this laptop nearly a year ago. However, I wasn’t using my nvidia card much until recently. Any ideas?
thanks for the help!
