NOTE: I have had a stroke three years ago, and have some brain-damage, thus I
am a perpetual newbie.

I have had a problem with Ryzom for about a year.

Now, I have two monitors, a proprietary NVIDIA driver, and the video card is an
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650. It runs on an 8-core processor (AMD FX 8350) and it is
currently running under Debian Linux 3.16-2-amd64, 12GB of memory, and 5GB of
swap space. I am currently running under 340.24, but I have also used 340.32,
343.13, and 343.22.

Here is the problem. It seems to me that my video driver crashes while playing,
it reverts to running on a single monitor, and then I restart the game and
*sometimes* after that, it runs fine, and sometimes the video driver crashes
again, repeatedly.

I have used different versions of the video driver, to no avail. I have set the
driver to use a single monitor, to no avail. I have used kernel versions
3.14-2-amd64 and 3.2.0-4, to no avail.

Also, before I play Ryzom, I need to poweroff my computer and
use xfce or fluxbox as my windows manager, as I have compositing on KDE, and
compositing does not work well with Ryzom.

Like I have said, I think it a problem with my video driver, but could also be
a problem with my kernel. However, I do not think anyone else in the Ryzom
community has this problem that I have.

Also, this only occurs when running Ryzom, I have no problem running any other game.

If you need some more questions to help me diagnose this problem, please ask.


I need me a new tag line on my messages!

I had the same issue, no problems with the computer during normal work, crashes when playing games.

Turned out my video card was overheating due to the accumulation of dust on the cooling elements. After removing it (carefully) the system ran like new again.

Thank you, I will give it a try.


I am a Fyros. What more do I have to say other than that?
