I’ll follow up with the full NVIDIA debug log once I’ve gone through its contents, but looking to see if anyone else has experienced this issue. Have had the card for a year and its been working fine under Windows 7. On Linux, however, seeking in VLC seems to freeze X (assumed because windows aren’t responsive and keyboard events get queued). SSHing in and kill -9’ing VLC clears it right up. This on Arch Linux with everything up to date and has been the case for 2 months now.
Kernel logs only a single error 31 when it happens:
[Tue Jan 2 20:52:24 2018] NVRM: Xid (PCI:0000:0e:00): 31, Ch 00000039, engmask 00008100, intr 10000000
VLC, however, is slightly more verbose:
VDPAU nvidia: Version: NVIDIA VDPAU Driver Shared Library 387.34 Tue Nov 21 02:08:49 PST 2017 VDPAU nvidia: Error detected 0 8273 VDPAU nvidia: Backtrace: --: /usr/lib/vdpau/libvdpau_nvidia.so.1 [0x7f823d9c2000] DSO load base 00: /usr/lib/vdpau/libvdpau_nvidia.so.1 [0x7f823d9cdd23] VDPAU nvidia: Version: NVIDIA VDPAU Driver Shared Library 387.34 Tue Nov 21 02:08:49 PST 2017 [...] [00007f8248c4b6f8] avcodec decoder: Using NVIDIA VDPAU Driver Shared Library 387.34 Tue Nov 21 02:08:49 PST 2017 for hardware decoding. Failed to idle DMA. Failed to idle DMA.
It’s fairly consistent, even though sometimes takes a minute of aggressive seeking in VLC to freeze it up.
Thanks in advance!
