Subject:   nVidia opengl works as root but not as user
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
it's getting boring seeing all the nvidia posts but I'm so darn close to=20
having it working here.
I have disabled INVARIANTS in the kernel and AGP and running with nvAgp=20
(although I get the same results using kernel agp as well).

The thing is that OpenGL apps run perfectly as root, but whenever I use m=
normal user I can run 1-2 OpenGL apps without any problems but when I run=
them the next time the machine locks instantly and then reboots, this nev=
happens when I'm running as root.
Since it works for root I must be close to having it fully working. Do an=
have any ideas? (No, I don't want to set the suid bit on my opengl apps ;=
I've never seen any useful output in my system logs after these reboots, =
there any way I can debug the driver without setting up a serial console?
