Thanks caf4926 based on the information on that link my issue isnt related to those dumps, I do have a 1024MB nVidia GeForce GT220 with dual head. maybe its not the right driver.
Now the question is what is causing my frezing, could it be possible that the system does not have time to log what happends ???
Yes caf4926 I bought a new system with a powerfull enough processor and enough memory with the intentions of running xen virtual machines, unfortunateny so far it has been a total failure, cant get the network to work on them.
and yes if I use my kernel desktop it will also freze just not as fast as the xen. I haven’t tried any fail safe arguments since the computer works for a while and then it frezes I have no problem booting up. Is there any arguments you have in mind that maybe could help me find the root of the problem?
To Deano Ferrari ,caf4926 and Lews Therin Telemon
The nomodeset didn’t help at all also, I Downloaded the latest driver from the nVidia website last night I haven’t had a chance to try it yet and Lews you are right it does not support the xen kernel, I will give Virtual Box a try.
Also on another note it seems that I am not the only one experiencing this issue, in fact there are a few people with the same exact problem e.g freezing Opensuse 11.3 -kernel 22.214.171.124-0.1-default i686
OK Guys I have great news I went ahead and tested out the latest driver from nVidia and it seem to have worked I’ve been on the system for about two hours and no freezing yet or crazy dumps on my /var/log/messages
Just a note: after installing the driver I lost my Dual Head then I ran :
Restarted my x and I was back to Dual Screen. But guess what the mouse goes from one to the other but I cant drag windows across screens, also they each have their own menu bar. Isn’t that crazy…
Any way thanks to all… I hope this helps everybody els
note: please make a copy of this file before you make any changes to enable dual head.
After the changes open nvidia control center
under x server display configuration
press tab X Screen and if it says disabled just check the box to enable it
Also enable xinerama
If you opened it as root you could press save to x configuration file which is located in
If you ran it as a non root it gives you the option of preview it, just copy and paste into a new file
any where in your system name it xorg.conf and then just drop it in /etc/X11/xorg
restart your x server and you should be ok.
