Description david 2021-06-15 16:08:32 UTC
During the last few days, I noted that on rebooting my laptop, I see NVRM messages on the console; after reviewing https://docs.nvidia.com/deploy/xid-errors/, I checked /var/log/messages, and see them there, as well (which makes them a little easier to copy/paste).

The system is running:
FreeBSD localhost 12.2-STABLE FreeBSD 12.2-STABLE #1065 stable/12-n233296-71efecb7eb1: Tue Jun 15 03:32:32 PDT 2021     root@localhost:/common/S1/obj/usr/src/amd64.amd64/sys/CANARY  amd64 1202507 1202507

today.  (I update base FreeBSD & installed ports daily; the Nvidia kernel modules are rebuilt every time the kernel is rebuilt.)

The x11/nvidia-driver is:
localhost(12.2-S)[4] pkg info -o nvidia\*
nvidia-driver-460.80           x11/nvidia-driver
nvidia-settings-460.73.01      x11/nvidia-settings
nvidia-xconfig-460.73.01       x11/nvidia-xconfig

The messages start with the first shown, then some number of the second:

The Nvidia Web page (cited above) seems to indicate that Xid 69 is "Graphics Engine class error," and is an error in the HW, the driver, or both.

Other than a visual "glitch" that might correspond with issuing one of the above "whines," I am not seeing overly disruptive symptoms.  (So: no kernel panics; no Xorg crashing.  I don't try to play real-time role-playing games.)

So I'm documenting this in case it might help shed some light on more disruptive issues that are being reported.
