So far I experienced lockups in very first Linux beta build of Rocket League and in Team Fortress 2. Haven’t played any other games that much to find anything similar, except for Europa Universalis IV but in 50+ hrs in the last two weeks I haven’t got any alike problems there.
When that thing happens the whole screen suddenly turns in some solid color (I think in different times I saw different shades of light brown and black colors), I still can hear sounds. Judging by sounds game freezes shortly after moment where I’m loosing picture on monitor (but not instantly - I still can hear game noises for a few seconds). Also if there were mumble or player running in the background I still can hear voices/music and (if I recall correctly).
Whole system is completely unresponsive during the whole thing: I can’t Alt+Tab, Switch desktops, kill X server with a bind, access TTY or even safe reboot with Alt+SysRq+RSEIUB. Only way to get PC back to working state is hard reboot.
Nevertheless I’m able to connect to PC through ssh with my phone. And I’m able to run console commands through it.
In the first public Linux beta build of Rocket League that problem happened very often I’d say every 30~45 minutes, in Team Fortress 2 it happening rarely but with inconsistent periodicity - usually once every 15~20 hrs of gameplay, maybe even more rare.
Last time (today) it happened during a competitive match (gladly - just a scrim, not an official game). So I had to quickly reboot system and join back to server as fast as possible, while my team where in numbers disadvantage. I rebooted, joined the server again and got hangup with same blank screen in less than a minute of gameplay. This time I wasted some time to do
sudo /usr/bin/nvidia-bug-report.sh --safe-mode
(it were hanging up without “–safe-mode”). Then I rebooted again, rejoined server and got a blank screen third time. I ran same command again. By the time I rebooted for the 3rd time, game already ended and server reservation ended. So I went to another server and played few hours without any troubles.
It was quite unusual with that rate of hungups. I can’t say for sure if I ever rejoined same server (with the same settings, map and users on it) again after crashing.
I didn’t succeed with setting up “-logverbose 6” - still can’t figure how to use it. I’d like it just to run on the system’s startup.
Here’s what I got today from Team Fortress 2:

Also here’s the reports I got from Rocket League hanups on September 10 (with the first Linux beta build):
This one I ran without “–safe-mode” and it hanged: https://mega.nz/#!Egg3SBgT!f4HnG7wpCIVPudVgyxVAUFOyjN-LTGhxk536MhijMfQ
And this one I ran with “–safe-mode”: https://mega.nz/#!klZwQQDL!0tDWbKSPsTmiyKgIxk82RwkDqzOWbVbJpLwOqBrg9h8
