Re: Lenovo IdeaPad Y500, Linux 3.10, NVidia driver crashes

Nope. Anything you install via yaourt goes through pacman, and should show up in your logs.
I double checked, and I found my fez installation (AUR through yaourt) in my log.
Try (re)installing the latest non-testing version of all related software (linux, nvidia, nvidia-libgl, nvidia-utils, systemd).
If the error shows up, check your X logs (/var/log/Xorg.0.log) and system logs (sudo journalctl -xn).
I think the error you got was unrelated to the issue in this topic.

I just tried nvidia 325.15-1 with Linux 3.11.1-1, and it didn't work. Same error as OP. Maybe I will try ck later, when I'm not in a defeatist mood.

Re: Lenovo IdeaPad Y500, Linux 3.10, NVidia driver crashes

I have a Y500 and the -ck packages work for me without issue (as of yet).

The core packages do not - I get a fast crash without persistence mode with the core packages.  If I turn on persistence mode, I get a fallen off the bus issue with the core packages.

If anyone is trying the -ck method, verify you have booted a -ck kernel before trying to load/use nvidia-ck

Re: Lenovo IdeaPad Y500, Linux 3.10, NVidia driver crashes

I just tested on linux-lts 3.10.12 and I custom compiled (not really custom since it's based on repo-ck configs, but nonetheless doesn't exist in a repo) a linux-lts-ck 3.10.12. Both have the driver fall off the bus. So the systemd update isn't really doing much.

Re: Lenovo IdeaPad Y500, Linux 3.10, NVidia driver crashes

I have to say, that I can't update to more current kernel/nvidia combination either. Currently I'm on 3.11.0-1 together with nVidia 325.15-1. This combination works flawlessly. Updating to a newer version of nvidia / linux however caused the same issues than before, fan speeding up during booting and whole system is down after 10 sec.

There is a new BETA driver! If anyone has time to test it with a regular kernal and report back, that would be great!

One report from the nvidia forum thread indicates that the bug is not fixed. I haven't seen anyone claim otherwise.

Re: Lenovo IdeaPad Y500, Linux 3.10, NVidia driver crashes

Funny thing noticed:
I've already settled for starting kdm manually after log-in.. but now I wanted to try Gnome because I'm getting a little bit pissed off by KDE's slowness, and I noticed, that Gnome is not starting... it ends with these messages in journalctl

okt 18 18:35:26 destiny kernel: nvidia 0000:01:00.0: irq 48 for MSI/MSI-X

This is on Linux 3.11-1 + nVidia 325.15-7.. KDM + KDE working normally if I start them with delay after boot, GDM/Gnome/Unity end up with these messages...

TBoshoven or anyone else on Y500, are you seeing these too or Gnome starts alright for you? And has anyone tried linux 3.12 with latest nvidia-beta if it isn't resolved yet?

Re: Lenovo IdeaPad Y500, Linux 3.10, NVidia driver crashes

I have not experienced this issue since the 3.11.1 kernel, until today. I want to point out that I do not understand why it would happen as there were no changes to my system. I have had several reboots since the 3.11.6 kernel without any problems. Then suddenly now I got the exact same symptoms again. I start X from console after boot, but my computer just died. When I turned on my laptop again, X started normally without any issue. I also made another reboot where I made sure to start X as soon as I could, and it launched without issue.

So the problem is definitely not solved, but obviously difficult to nail down since the nvidia devs have yet to solve the problem. I will also report this on the nvidia forum.

Re: Lenovo IdeaPad Y500, Linux 3.10, NVidia driver crashes

On W530 with K2000M it works with linux-ck-ivybridge (3.11.6-1) and nvidia-ck-ivybridge (325.15-8), hovever it needs rcutree.rcu_idle_gp_delay=1 as a kernel option in grub.

I've tried several reboots and logouts (I have kde (kdm)). So far, it always worked.

Re: Lenovo IdeaPad Y500, Linux 3.10, NVidia driver crashes

We're 2 months on from the posts i'm quoting (though the thread still active) so I probably shouldn't bother making these corrections... but i can't shake the need to so here we go. tongue

Yes, I didn't quite see why the method in the manjaro forums would be considered a workaround as it was simply a patched 3.9 kernel. Since nobody that are suffering from this issue seem to be having a problem with the 3.9 kernel, it would seem unnecessary to do this in the first place.

No, the problem did not only start in Linux 3.10. Early 3.8 kernels and extremely early 3.9 kernels were not affected, but later point releases were.
For example, for the 3.8 series, the issue started happening at 3.8.5.
So it was in fact completely necessary for the 3.9.11 kernel that was provided.


TBoshoven wrote:

I don't see a manual patch there; only binary packages which seem to contain Linux 3.9 .

Otherwise, a better workaround (no untrusted binary packages) for this specific issue is just to keep using Linux 3.9 .

If you inspect the thread a little closer you'll find Just 2 posts prior to the one referenced I provided a link to the source packages.


So yeah, all irrelevant now, but I don't like the implication that I provided a 'bogus' or 'fake' solution. I didn't.

This is the first time I see this (I maintain primus, contributed to Bumblebee, and kept an eye on this issue). IIRC in 3.8.5 a different bug appeared, preventing the kernel from detecting the ACPI handle for the discrete GPU, and thus breaking bbswitch and nvidia drivers on some laptops (but in a different manner). If what you say is true, and you have a laptop that exhibits the same breakage (NVRM messages such as "rm_init_adapter failed" and/or "GPU has fallen off the bus", but bbswitch is able to find the ACPI handle), would you mind git-bisecting the 3.8.x and 3.9.x release branches to find breaking commits? When the issue appeared on 3.10, I bisected mainline tree to an RCU commit that I wouldn't expect to be backported to 3.8 and 3.9.


Edit: read the manjaro thread. Korrode, you're confusing two different issues. The manjaro thread is about ACPI regression in the kernel. This one is not.

I just installed again Archlinux on my Y500 after a while with windows 8, and everything looks great, including SLI.
has anyone know about this fix on nvidia? or was done by the linux kernel developers?

If you've read this thread, you'll see that the issues seems to have resolved itself for most after the 3.11.1 kernel. I don't recall seeing any mentions of people experiencing this problem with the 3.12 kernel.

Re: Lenovo IdeaPad Y500, Linux 3.10, NVidia driver crashes

A workaround has been found for this over in the Nvidia thread. The problem seems to not occur when using 1000Hz timer ticks.

CONFIG_HZ_1000=y
CONFIG_HZ=1000

I still get issues with suspending/resuming my machine, but I can successfully run nvidia. This workaround is likely sufficient for bumblebee users.

This solves the problem for me too, but only temporily.

What i did:

- I restarted and put "nomodeset 3 " in the syslinux parameters
- entered the root rescue console that appears.
- did  tee /sys/module/rcutree/parameters/rcu_idle_gp_delay <<<1
- Control+D (exit), continue boot
- logged in, everything fine.

If I restart and boot normally the same crash occurs, I get to the point were slim is supposed to start and the laptop switches off.
Is there anything i can do to not have to enter the command on each start in this complicated way?
