What technical information would you like me to post? I am not to good
Driver Version is x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-302.17:0
If you're gonna be a Gentoo user you will develop more of those traits
That's the newest driver. As per Paul's suggestion you might try an older one.
Other than that post the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf as well as
your current xorg log file, most like /var/log/Xorg.0.log, but it
might have a different name.
As the 6150 seems to be an on-board GPU only used in specific nvidia
laptop chipsets I have no idea about it's specs. As you say it's not
CUDA-based I'm suspicious about mixing CUDA & non-CUDA and getting
good results. You might query the nouveau driver guys to see if they
support it. The 8400 is probably well supported there and likely
someone will know if they support old & new NVidia chips running
Also, if you can get it to crash and are still able to ssh in then I'd
look closely at the X11 log file and see if it says anything, as well
as dmesg, etc. Maybe you're up against a kernel bug or something. (You
didn't tell us much about your setup...) ;-)
I have tried numerous drivers, from I think 275 up, skipping a
couple of revisions. I end up with the same result when it comes to
the 8400GS. I have also tried the nouveau driver with the same
result. I have to disable the acceleration for it to work.
When I change the bios setting to use the PCIe it doesn't show the
6150 at all in lspci (I Think). I am using the same xorg.conf file
that I use for my 8400, nothing about it has changed except for the
addition of the suggestions of Paul. Even that change still have the
6150 still working.
Here are the two files that you asked for.
In the beginning this was my desktop with Gentoo on it. 8400 worked
just fine. I started using it as a headless server for awhile and
playing around with CUDA, now I am back to using it as a desktop but
more for XBMC connected to a TV. I still use it to share the net,
DNS, DHCP you know all that good stuff.
Kernel Version 3.3.8-gentoo-r1
Tried to build 3.4 series but it just crashes out this computer,
haven't tried the 3.5 series yet.
I also just looked through my /var/log/messages file. It is nothing
in there about the crash. It just jump time 2 minutes. That is the
same thing that would be in dmesg right?
I will switch back to the 8400 to take a look at dmesg for the crash
if I can ssh in still.
Can't get dmesg log. Can't ssh into it anymore!
