X hangs when using nvidia drivers
Shortly after starting to play a youtube video, Xorg froze for me.
Here's what I have installed:
Xorg log file attached.

I had issues getting my desktop to start after my initial boot. I'm using startx to launch dwm via xinitc.
I would see the nvidia splash screen and then just blackscreen. Usually killing X and restarting it would fix it.
I loaded the 275.09.07 driver and the issue has gone away.

Re-opening. Issue is identified as X.org being built with the wrong compiler:

i.e. Sun Studio 12.1 was used when 12.0 is needed. There is a patch to fix this with 12.1:
However 12.0 should have been used. We're going to respin xnv and re-import before the release.

This Xorg freeze (or one exactly like what's described in issue 1161) is still happening on two of my systems. Both run OI-151a now, and both have the nVidia driver version 280.13; The crash also happened under OI-148 with the same nVidia driver. One machine is 64-bit Intel Core i7 w/8GB RAM, GeForce 7300GT; The other is 32-bit Intel P4 w/2GB RAM, GeForce 6200.
When the problem occurs, mouse and keyboard input are ignored, but one can log remotely. You see the Xorg process using 100% CPU; Actually it shows in "prstat -m" as 33% USR, 33% LCK, 33% SLP. Usually restarting gdm is not sufficient, I think the nVidia card or driver is in an unhappy state, with some blocks of black & white bars on the screen after Xorg exits, so I usually just reboot the system.
Also, the Xorg.0.log shows entries like the ones below at the end, prior to killing it.
