Re: [Solved] Kernel 3.16.0 and i915 causes Kwin crashes

Had a similar problem this morning after update to kernel liniux-3.16.1-1 from linux-3.15.4-1.
Gnome just gave me the message "there is a problem...."

Did a manual roll-back to kernel linux-3.15.4-1 and system seems to be ok for now.

Still looking for a proper fix to this.

Re: [Solved] Kernel 3.16.0 and i915 causes Kwin crashes

Hey Marioarun,

Thanks for the LTS kernel idea.  I updated the kernel last night, and found that I couldn't get into cinnamon this morning.  I spent most of the day working in LXDE, but now that I've put it on a long-term support kernel, I'm back in Cinnamon, and my OpenGL works again. 

I'll use this kernel until they fix the problem.

Hi, I patched 3.16.1 with this and it seems to be working.

It looks like it has been fixed upstream. big_smile

Re: [Solved] Kernel 3.16.0 and i915 causes Kwin crashes

Good to hear that the issue is resolved upstream.

I assume the following error message and respective crashes on boot/standby/hibernation are related to it.

I have the same problem, I just install xf86-video-intel-devel in the AUR, and it works fine for me until restart again, then I reinstall xf86-video-intel from offical repo, It works again until I restart again and again

Have been marked as resolved by upstream, will Arch patch related package for quick fix?

Only if you ask them to do it.  Open a fly spray or check to see if there is one already and post the suggestion with link to patch.

Re: [Solved] Kernel 3.16.0 and i915 causes Kwin crashes

Having the same problem - intel video and gnome setup here. Any chance of getting the fix in 3.16.1-2 or 3.16.1-3?

Added: I've reverted the kernel so my system is working. Only problem is my last kernel version was 3.14.x which is pretty old. Running that version against all the updates that came with 3.16.1-1 has made my system pretty unstable. So hoping that what's been fixed upstream will come along soon. Hope someone's made that flyspray request to the Arch maintainers! smile

No problems on my other system with the nvidia gpu.

Just curious, Graysky, since you are aware of this issue is it in your CK kernel? Just wondering how you work with these kinds of problems.

Re: [Solved] Kernel 3.16.0 and i915 causes Kwin crashes

As pointed out by others, this is known to fix the issue upstream.  Can anyone confirm that the patch indeed solves the issue?

Patch: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=104224

If so, and given that the developer himself mentioned on Aug 7th, that it will get backported to stable kernels eventually, I or someone else should open flyspray asking for its inclusion in the ARCH kernel.  I can't verify the fix on my hardware due to my inability to take down the box right now.  Can someone else?

Re: [Solved] Kernel 3.16.0 and i915 causes Kwin crashes

OK... I managed to bring the box down for the update.  I have rebooted it 4 times now after patching the 3.16.1-1 kernel with the aforementioned patch and have no experienced the errors.

Re: [Solved] Kernel 3.16.0 and i915 causes Kwin crashes

Just a quick question to clarify whether this issue is related:

If you put your machine into suspend/hibernation, does Xorg crash on resume?

For me it does, putting me back to tty, but I am not sure if it is related to the error message:

Aug 27 07:43:45 thinkpad kernel: [drm:stop_ring] *ERROR* render ring :timed out trying to stop ring

Re: [Solved] Kernel 3.16.0 and i915 causes Kwin crashes

This is my first tour on Arch and I happened to install it on a Dell Latitude E6400 that is running the Intel GM45 chipset when these issues cropped up so I have been pulling my hair out and RTFM'ing like there is no tomorrow.

It has been an awesome learning experience which has pushed the boundaries of what I know about Linux which is why I switched to Arch so I can't complain.

Having said that, I am frustrated as hell with the i915 regression issue and have bitten the bullet and built the linux-mainline kernel from the AUR.

3.17.0-1-mainline #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Sep 1 23:09:02 SAST 2014 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I am no longer experiencing wedges on boot, hung display with active mouse on resume or crashes.

This is the only change that I have made outside of the Arch repo's which seems to have sorted out the problems that I have had since my first install.

Re: [Solved] Kernel 3.16.0 and i915 causes Kwin crashes

@somehost - can u confirm that the upstream patch against 3.16.x fixes your problem?  It could be that there is not a need to run the unstable 3.17 code base.

I've also had this problem on my computer, which is an Acer eMachies D728-4693 laptop. I applied the patch and rebuilt my kernel (originally 3.16.1) with ABS, but it hasn't solved the problem yet.

After patching and recompiling, dmesg says this

$ dmesg | grep acer

So, it seems that it's somehow disabling the acer_wmi module and insisting on switching to the Intel one, which disables the Fn keys' functionality regarding screen brightness. Does anyone have any other ideas/patches for solving this?

Here on my Packard Bell vr46 (Intel GMA4500) Kwin still crashes; it's impossible to enable OpenGL 3.1 (as used previously).
I had to change the acceleration method from SNA to glamor and switch to OpenGL 2.0 in order for KDE/Kwin to start without crashing.

The situation improved - I could boot only after disabling desktop effects - but the issue more or less still exists; with Kernel 3.15.x I could boot with SNA/OpenGL 3.1 without issues, now I can't.

Re: [Solved] Kernel 3.16.0 and i915 causes Kwin crashes

Same for me. Kernel 3.16.2-1 still crashes.

Fortunately, user C. Simon (mentalis) provides a pre-compiled kernel package.
