Thank you, awesome news! Though for the moment I guess I'll continue using -ck at least until I finish reading the LKN book smile

Good news: just upgraded to 3.16.4 via core repository, and I can once again switch on OpenGL rendering and all the silly desktop effects I want...

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

Solved for me too. Person who had originally fixed it had said that patch was not complete and there was still some chance. Hope that's no more true and latest patch fixes it completely.


Forum signature: I discuss. I put my thoughts strongly. But I definitely respect all developers and time they put in.

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

Hmm, still happening over here. Get random X freezes. At least I can still switch to a VT and reboot. Last line in dmesg after an X freeze is

[drm:i915_hangcheck_elapsed] *ERROR* Hangcheck timer elapsed... render ring idle

Using 3.16.4-1-ARCH kernel.
