Xorg freezes often!

Hi all,

is there any solution, workaround or fix for the Xorg freeze bug?


Description:
Xorg freezes often, no mouse (or mouse very slow), no keyboard, cold reboot required!

Additional info:
System: ArchLinux i686, 32bit
Current packages: kernel 3.3.2-1-ARCH, Xorg 1.12.1-1, gnome 3.4.1-1, nvidia 295.33-2

AMD Phenom II X4 975, 4GB Ram, GeForce 8800GTS 512

/var/log/Xorg.0.log:
[ 5797.032] [mi] EQ overflowing. Additional events will be discarded until existing events are processed.
[ 5797.032]

[ 5797.050] [mi] These backtraces from mieqEnqueue may point to a culprit higher up the stack.
[ 5797.050] [mi] mieq is *NOT* the cause. It is a victim.

Thanks!

Just now freezes again, Xorg CPU 100%, nothing works, no mouse, no keyboard! Cold reboot required! Cannot find any errors in logs!

Up to three freezes a day! This sucks! Any hints, workarounds, tips??? Anyone?

Re: Xorg freezes often!

hi, does the nvidia driver fully support x.org 1.12 yet? I'm on AMD and the latest driver doesn't support it yet.
maybe you downgrade x.org and see if that does change anything. Put this on top of your repos in /etc/pacman.conf and do a "pacman -Suu".

[xorg111]
Server = http://catalyst.apocalypsus.net/repo/xorg111/$arch

by now there is a kernel update but other than that I have no idea. Could be a bug in the driver or gnome, too.

Re: Xorg freezes often!

The nvidia driver supports 1.12 just fine

Yep. But the security fix screws up G80 cards.

@realdarkman: Wait for a new nvidia driver release.

Thanks for your posts guys!

I have a Nvidia GeForce 8800GTS 512, it's a G92 chip set!? Is the security fix the problem?

Re: Xorg freezes often!

hi realdarkman.

i'm experiencing the exact same problem. not found any solution so far.

may i ask, if you have further problems?
because in addition to the problem you described, i'm experiencing following problem as well:
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=171448

if so, both problems could be connected.
