Arch Linux on nvidia 375.20-3 driver: mouse disappears, virtual consoles blank.
I did not. I felt it was more appropriate here, especially after narrowing the issue down to nvidia-libgl. The computer is perfectly fine with mesa-libgl.

chiroptical: Can you please retest [i]without[/i] ForceFullCompositionPipeline. I.e., Option "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0" Thanks.

Sorry Andy, changes made. I'll keep an eye on it.

New bug report, seemingly same issue: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3k9IViw0wE_a25LN0diVFRsT0U/view?usp=sharing

Thanks. I've downloaded the log, so you can delete it from google drive, if you like. The Xid signature is slightly different in that log, but the display engine is having the same problem: for some reason, it cannot translate the buffer handles provided by the driver. I'll try to continue investigating.

I have another update. I said mesa-libgl was "working fine", but really I can't run any OpenGL programs. glxgears yields: [code]name of display: :0.0 libGL: screen 0 does not appear to be DRI2 capable libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/tls/swrast_dri.so libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/swrast_dri.so libGL: Can't open configuration file /home/bmooreii/.drirc: No such file or directory. libGL: Can't open configuration file /home/bmooreii/.drirc: No such file or directory. libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast X Error of failed request: GLXBadContext Major opcode of failed request: 154 (GLX) Minor opcode of failed request: 6 (X_GLXIsDirect) Serial number of failed request: 48 Current serial number in output stream: 47[/code] Basically, I am now switching back and forth between mesa-libgl (for a working mouse) and nvidia-libgl (for a working OpenGL).

Thanks for that update, chiroptical. Sorry this is still a problem. We're investigating several other bugs that have a similar symptom (the display engine cannot translate the buffer handles provided by the driver). I'm hopeful that once we get to the bottom of that, the fix will also resolve the cursor issue you are seeing. Sorry.

For reference, LTS kernel and driver doesn't fix the issue.

I have some additional information, local/nvidia 378.13-4 NVIDIA drivers for linux local/nvidia-utils 378.13-6 NVIDIA drivers utilities and this kernel, 4.10.6-1-ARCH I can close the laptop lid, let the laptop suspend, and reopen to get the mouse back. I couldn't do this before (if I recall correctly). Virtual consoles work too. It doesn't require a reboot which is much more manageable.

I got the nvidia 378.13-5 update today. It's hard to tell if the release notes address this issue (http://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/115031/en-us), but I am hopeful.
