xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902-1 breaks stuff

dmesg gets spammed with

...
[drm:i915_gem_execbuffer] *ERROR* Execbuf while wedged
[drm:i915_gem_execbuffer] *ERROR* Execbuf while wedged
[drm:i915_gem_execbuffer] *ERROR* Execbuf while wedged

[drm:i915_gem_execbuffer] *ERROR* Execbuf while wedged
[drm:i915_gem_execbuffer] *ERROR* Execbuf while wedged
...

by breaks stuff i mean, only sysrq to reboot the system

any clues?

Re: xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902-1 breaks stuff

New requirements of 2.10 compared to 2.9
----------------------------------------
* Linux kernel with kernel-modesetting (KMS)

   All user-modesetting code has now been removed from the driver.
   We highly recommend kernel version 2.6.32 or later.

* Libdrm >= 2.4.16

Do you have kms enabled? I'm going to try to compile it now (from git) and report back later if any problems appear...


Ok, tested it with 2.6.32.2 and 2.6.31-rc1 and works ok for now. Does this kernel panic appear random, right after you login or after specific tasks (gaming, watching videos or something else)?

Kernels mentioned above are custom with kms enabled and i915 driver is compiled into the kernel image.

Re: xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902-1 breaks stuff

Similar issues for me, though the symptoms varied.  I experienced X failing to start (repeated errors similar to that of eldragon printed in stderr if I recall correctly), X locking (but still being able to switch to a tty and recover), and X locking and needing to use Sysrq to reboot.

kernel26-2.6.32.1-1 with KMS enabled.

I've since reverted back to xf86-video-intel-2.9.1-1.

Re: xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902-1 breaks stuff

I have an uptime of 1.5h on 2.6.33-rc1 and xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902 and no problem so far. Played urban terror, several video clips (with xvmc output), and it's still rocksolid.

It could be a chipset specific issue...

Kernel from testing, KMS enabled, sysrq is the only solution anytime I try to start the X server.

No graphical corruption either. KMS is enabled.

Hmm smile. I should set that in my kernel instead of using the initcpio image tongue.

Edit: I'm using my own 2.6.31 kernel.

Re: xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902-1 breaks stuff

What is a known good config on these intel cards?  I have a new laptop I'm trying to get running.  I tried rolling back to xf86-video-intel 2.9.1-1 and kernel26 2.6.32.1-1, but I'm still having issues.

Re: xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902-1 breaks stuff

I am having lockups it seems with the xf86-video-intel from testing. I rolled back to the one in extra for the time being, I had two lockups within a few hours.

Re: xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902-1 breaks stuff

X freezed two times on my laptop and I decided to replace libdrm and xf86-video-intel with libdrm-newest and xf86-intel-newest from AUR. Everything seems stable even with KMS enabled.

Re: xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902-1 breaks stuff

The libdrm-newest and xf86-video-intel-newest packages from AUR are actually the same versions as we have, so that shouldn't make a difference. I think the new driver utilizes KMS code that is broken in 2.6.32, causing the GPU lockups. I also reverted my system to the stable version for now.

On the other side, there's 845G hardware that locks up instantly with the stable driver, but works fine with the new driver.

Try booting with i915.powersave=0. According to some developers the problems are caused by the new powermanagement features in the 2.6.32 kernel. I think some of that has been reverted in 2.6.33.

Re: xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902-1 breaks stuff

I also am having similar problems. X crashes often, especially when loading lots of tabs in Firefox.

As I am using testing, I will downgrade to the driver in [extra].

Re: xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902-1 breaks stuff

I have

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01)

and with 2.6.32 kernel from testing and the 2.9.99.902-3 xf86-video-intel-newest, I get lockups with the following errors:

EE intel(0): Failed to submit batch buff, expecting rendering corruption or even a frozen display: Input/Output error

This is actually an improvement over previous versions, as you can actually ctrl-alt-backspace to kill X and go back to the console. If you try to restart X it just gives a black screen. Previous versions hard-locked everything except moving the mouse.

Re: xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902-1 breaks stuff

This problem (looks like multiple problems actually) is known for a while now, for example:
    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=25475
    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=25406
    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=25598

Some patches are already available, unfortunately for the kernel... keep an eye on those discussions.


You need to install an RTFM interface.

Re: xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902-1 breaks stuff

After my first reboot after a long while of constant uptime I started having this/these issue(s). Been seeing the same kind of errors everyone has been reporting above. I've found it to affect:
- 2.6.32 kernel with 2.9.99.902 drivers
- 2.6.32 kernel with 2.9.1 drivers
- 2.6.31 kernel with 2.9.99.902 drivers
So stuck on non-testing for both kernel26 and xf86-video-intel in order to have a system that is remotely usable. Does anyone have any of the above combinations working at all?

kernel26 2.6.32 with xf86-video-intel 2.9.1 are without issue here.  I only experience problems with 2.9.99.902.  Though there seems to be others reporting the same issue with 2.6.32: here.

That solves my X freezes. Switching back and forth b/w vts and X causes problems though.
I get these lines in my X-log:

Re: xf86-video-intel 2.9.99.902-1 breaks stuff

This issue makes my MSI Wind essentially unusable. It almost seems that the freezing is completely random. I'm having a hard time reproducing it. Using powersave=0 has not fixed the problem for me.
