slackware-64 13.37 suddenly freezes ( logs included )
 
Hello, I have slackware 13.37-64 bit with nvidia gforce 210.
Since i did the installation and use the default graphic card driver (nouveau) i see that after some hours of using it suddenly freezes. I can't do anything, even use alt_ctl_backspace
or alt_ctl_del for reboot, so i use the button of the pc to reboot. The only thing that i have noticed is that it happens that every time it freezes i am using firefox. But i don't know if it has every relation with this.
Since i'm not very experienced user and can't understand the log files i have put here the pieces of /var/log/syslog and /var/log/messages related to the time that the freeze happens:

/var/log/syslog:

Can you figure out the problem somehow?

Have you tried using nvidia's binary driver?

Were you browsing a site that has mostly text (like the linuxquestions forums) or picture galleries ? I had what seems to be the same problem that when i opened tabs showing e.g wallpapers, firefox crashed the system or messed the screen up and artifacts were everywhere. The cause was hardware acceleration. I have the impression that Firefox enables it only for the binary nvidia driver because when i tested nouveau it never crashed, so your cause might be a different one, but disable hardware acceleration anyway and see if you can reproduce it (Edit-> Preferences-> Advanced-> General-> Use hardware acceleration when available).

This is the post i made here and the post in Greek. As i said it might be a different cause in your case since you use nouveau but it is easy to disable acceleration and test it.

I have tried it and have serious problem with high memory usage of X ( sometimes over 500 Mb ).
I have tried many things:
KDE + nvidia ( 256, 260-from slackbuilds, 270 )= high memory
KDE + nouveau = high memory
LXDE + nvidia ( 256, 260-from slackbuilds, 270 )= high memory
LXDE + nouveau = normal memory BUT freezes

Ofcaurse now i haven't KDE and it's libs installed ( did a clean installed with just LXDE ). Should i give another try? Would it make any difference?

I'm not sure i remember what i was browsing, only that once i was downloading a video attachment from an e-mail through my account with firefox. I also haven't had any artifacts - just the freezing. I now disabled the "hardware acceleration" as you said, and wait and see...

Hmm - I find it hard to believe that the binary driver causes huge memory usage. I would really like to see the open-source driver come to true fruition, but in the meantime we're a far way from that. So I'd also suggest sticking to the binary. After all, you probably paid a chunk of money to get a decent graphics card. If you were running with Intel graphics it would make great sense to stick with the open version.
