I just recently upgraded to skylake. 6700K, maximus viii hero with the latest bios, and a 980 ti. Any program that is GUI related crashes with a segmentation fault when exited. Console based applications do not.
It seems to be hitting users on systems that use nvidia hardware with the newest official nvidia drivers. When using older nvidia drivers the issue goes away and doesn’t exist.
Here are some links reporting about the issue.
a temporary fix is either to downgrade the nvidia drivers if you have that option, compile glibc without --enable-lock-elision, or try that patch in the one arch thread that’s meant to work around the lock.
i tried the latest beta drivers with both the 4.2 and the newest released 4.3 kernel and still get the fault when glibc has elision enabled.
not sure if its really nvidia or if its intel just asking here since nvidia seems to be apart of it.
