Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

I realy need help - after more than a month I was fighting with this problem but without any succes. I thought that there is something wrong with my hardware so I tried to install another distro but it worked well I mean without the problems I want to mention. I've done some research and found that many others have same problem and that it was not solved very well. I tried to build another kernel with pkgbuilt from AUR installed it but it didn't help at all. 

Here some links:

first at home http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php? … er+freezes

then neighbours
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-19 … a130a6159a   
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-33 … 9e7328d2f9

I have to say that I'm down I cannot understand how to solve that. I use nvidia card and never had any problems before.

Please help me.

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

Could you post a link to your xorg.conf

Need just a little more info, it would help....

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

Same problems here with my PC.

I use a IBM X22 Laptop with a D-Link DWL G650 WLan PCMCIA Card and a builtin Radeon card. Over kdm I can logon and use KDE for a while. After an infrequent amount of time the computer feezes totally. No mouse, no keyboard - nothing.

When I start in console modus the Laptop works without problems. I can download packages, etc without freezes. Therefore I would blame the problem to xorg or KDE.

I am using windows at the moment and there are no freezes thus I excluded a hardware problem.


Here is what I alread did in order to pin down the problem (without success?!):

I first thought that the freezes are related to my wireless card (because it produces much of RX transmission errors but that is another story) but they even appear with the card unplugged and the modules unloaded.

Using KDE I installed Gnome to give it a try. But still complete system freezes after infrequent times. Changed system language from german to englisch completly erasing my .kde directory (because the system seemed to run longer after starting gnome in standard englsich). No change.

Changed several times from hotplug to lshwd and back because I thought that it might be a module load problem. Switching to lshwd solved some udev problems I encountered in /var/log/errors (Oct 15 12:25:58 CAESAR udev[3609]: main: action, subsystem or devpath missing) but still no change with the freezing problem.

Tried to "stress" the PC a little bit by starting many application at startup. Openoffice, unison, thunderbird, sim, skype, etc. but the freezing times still occured infrequently.

Looking in /var/log/Xorg.0 does not give any obvious failure to me.

Sorry that I do not have my xorg.conf at hand but I will post it in order to solve the problem.

Cheers

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

Try using hwd to create a xorg.conf ... see if that works.

Had locks up in Arch64 which turned out to be a problem in xorg.conf (my fault  :oops: )

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

Unfortunately hwd -x does not help stopping the freezes. Just tried it and PC stopped working after 30 sec or so :cry:.

But thanks for the input .

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

my suspect would be the driver for the graphics chip...

However the other links refer to nvidia cards  as does your post in relation to your PC

you lappy lists a radeon -- usually ATI

(have you tried the nvidia -legacy drivers for your pc)

what  chip is in the laptop, on board is a little generic.....

same for your pc what is the actual chip...

may help in trying to answer your questions

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

To quote myself:

[...] and a builtin Radeon card.

As I created the xorg.conf by hwd -x the radeon card was found correctly. And no obvious failures with dmesg.

Any other ideas? Contact me via ICQ! I would really like to get my archlinux back to work.

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

I didn't try nvidia-legacy driver yet but I'll try today and post the result and as for my hwd:

Athlon XP2400, Chip Gigabyte KT7VAXP

Graphic Card: MSI GeForce 6200  ( NX6200-TD128E )

Before I changed to that card I had 64MB Gforce from the same producer but at the end(before the change to new one) the same problem.
It all started by (I think) some kernel update but I don't remember which one. Meanwhile I tried different kernels but without any succes - I mean I built them with abs.
(BTW: I tested the last release of Ubuntu and all went good. But I don't want to switch to another distro. Arch is the only distro which was on my desktop for last year - never happened before.)

Please Help

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

Nah dont try nvidia -legacay your card should be fine with the normal nvidia drivers dont use xorg's nv that is next to usless..
what was the start of the problem was it the swith to gcc4 or a kernel upgrade, as both kernel and modules must be built with same gcc


are you full -Syu

have you tried the ati drivers for your LAP TOP

Please disable any extra options (such as dri or compostie) in your xorg conf set to default depth 16
and see how it behaves

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

I am using the xorg radeon drivers that are included. BTW the inbuilt card is an ATI Mobility Radeon 7000 with 8MB big_smile of RAM.

Disabled DRI in the xorg.conf (default depth was 16bit).
Started KDE: This time it took much longer but still - bang! System completly froozen.

Any suggestions? May the ati prop driver help?
Any ideas how I could pin the problem further down?

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

ok so the chip is fairly recent probably worth trying the ati ones ..

I my memory serves me right, x has several different ati drivers built into it but these are for very old chips.. chould be worth experimenting.

please post the xorg.conf files

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

You know, if there's one thing that annoys the heck out of me about XOrg, it's that it's capable of hard freezes. I'm fine with everything else about it; but if something screws up, it should just exit! :x

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

Tony: This problem is with the nvidia driver AFAIK. Nvidia say it will be fixed in the -8xxx series driver.

In the meantime you can try the old 6629 driver - the last one known without these problems - see my post here
http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=15420
and see if you get any improvement.

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

I tried to install the ati prop driver. Downloaded the graphical installer from the ati webpage (~ 60MB) started the ati-driver-installer-8.18.6-i386.run and  :cry:  another comlete freeze of my system.

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

Finally I managed to install the ati propiertary drivers. But my card is not supported (only radeon >9000 and radeon mobile >7500)...

Googled (google:radeon 7000 +xorg) a little bit about xorg and the inbuilt ati radeon drivers and it looks like a bug of xorg 6.8 and my radeon mobile 7000 :-(. Unfortunately I think I have to wait for a xorg update.

Thanks for all the input.

Cheers
thomas

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

I've been thinking about recompiling(with ABS) xorg + kernel in my comp. This way I could prevent to have these packages compiled by different gcc?? What do you think about it? does it make any sense to you???

Edit: Do you have any idea if this helps or does it make any sense to you:

nvidia-kernel packages older than 1.0.6106 only support kernels using an 8K stack size. More recent kernels (2.6.6 and higher) have support for 4K stack size's as well. Do not select 4K stack size in your kernel configuration if you are using such an nvidia-kernel package. You can find this option in the section Kernel Hacking.

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

So it seems that no other NVIDIA users have the same problem. But let me ask a question is this dependent on the model of the particular card or manufacturer?
BTW yesterday I tried to install : Suse 9.3 – same, PCBSD – same, (Desktop BSD – was not able to install - didn't boot at all).

Please experienced users Dusty, Diblethewrecker, Theoden, Rensel  and the others don't let me down.

Help me please.

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

Dunno if it helps, but my fairly new laptop is unusable with kernel 2.6.13.4: Sometimes the boot sequence halts due to ACPI errors, some other times it boots into KDE but it's dog slow/unstable. It does have an nvidia 6800 videocard, and I do use the "nvidia" driver.
With the Archck kernel it works just great (after some fancy footwork to make the Marvel Yukon online ethernet and the Realtek ALC880 HD audio to work properly- but that's another story).

Re: Xorg Totally but Totally Frozen!!!

tony: some problems i've experienced in the past with my nvidia card...

:: udev + xorg = mouse at /dev/input/mice otherwise x crashes.
:: xorg.conf   Section "Device"   needs   BusID "PCI:1:0:0"   or x crashes.

Best of luck.
