Nvidia-detect error with on HP Z4 (CentOS 6.9)

Hi all,

I'm testing an installation of nvidia drivers on a HP Z4 workstation
(nvidia Quadro P600) with CentOS 6.9. Running nvidia-detect with this
setup gives the following output:

# nvidia-detect
Error getting device_class

nvidia-detect also quits with exit-code 255.
Could this be a bug in nvidia-detect?

Re: [CentOS] CentOS 6: Yum downloadonly changes local source repositories (and CentOS 7)

For what its worth, I managed to get around the problem with a small
patch on yum itself:

CentOS 6: Yum downloadonly changes local source repositories

Nvidia maximum pixel clock issue in kmod-nvidia-384.98

Hi everyone,

On CentOS 7 I'm running into an issue with the latest nvidia driver
from elrepo: kmod-nvidia-384.98-1.el7_4.elrepo.x86_64
This driver version seem to introduce issue in detecting video modes
when a monitor is connected using DVI. As soon as the machine attempts
to start X, nothing happens and the monitor goes into sleep mode
reporting that it has 'no signal'.

It is interesting because it occurs with several monitors, but only
when they are connected through DVI.

icecc/icecream for CentOS 7

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a way to install icecc/icecream on CentOS 7 for
distributed builds, preferably like any other package rpm a
repository.

I already found some effort done by someone else to create an rpm
package for CentOS 7 and published in a private repository :
<a href="https://copr-be.cloud.fedoraproject.org/results/mbriza/Icecream/epel-7-x86_64/" title="https://copr-be.cloud.fedoraproject.org/results/mbriza/Icecream/epel-7-x86_64/">https://copr-be.cloud.fedoraproject.org/results/mbriza/Icecream/epel-7-x...</a>

This package already seem to work. However, if possible, I prefer a
solution that is used/available for the whole world to use.

I noticed that with CentOS 6 a iceream package was provided by the
epel repositories.

race conditions in dbus-1.2

Hi everyone,

I'm having some issue with a Qt application using D-Bus (Qt API) in a
threaded appllication on CentOS 6.

Searching for the cause has led me to the following issues in the dbus library:

<a href="https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=857" title="https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=857">https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=857</a>
<a href="https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17754" title="https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17754">https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17754</a>

It appears that there are threading issues with the dbus library version < 1.6.
However there doesn't seem to be other version than 1.2 available for CentOS 6.

Can someone advise what approach can be used to either work around or
solve the issue?
