[SOLVED] linux 3.8 and X4500: X11 hangs periodically

Since the upgrade from 3.7.10 to 3.8.x the X11 using 3D Acceleration (X4500 Intel) hangs periodically. drm_kms_helper.poll=0 doesn't help. Any ideas?

Re: [SOLVED] linux 3.8 and X4500: X11 hangs periodically

Did you just upgrade the kernel, or your whole system?  Maybe downgrading xorg-server will do the trick.

You may have already seen his, but I'll link it anyways.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/In … leshooting

Some issues with X crashing, GPU hanging, or problems with X freezing, can be fixed by disabling the GPU usage with the NoAccel option:

It sounds like you didn't have issues before, so that's why I say it might be a compatibility issue, and that's a pretty common issue with closed-source graphic drivers.

I have wasted atleast a second of your time by making you read my signature.

I upgraded just the Kernel. I use Cinnamon so the 3D Acceleration is needed.

The problem appears to be solved in the 3.9-rc4.

It is the same as this and this .
Persists with 3.8.5 from ck-repo.

Not for me. Ok, maybe the symptoms: with 3.9-rc4, X is smooth even when i915 starts interrupting like crazy and kworker takes 30% of cpu. At least the computer is usable and doesn't hang. But the underlying issue (i915 interrupting at a rate of 500 interrupts per second) is a problem that should be resolved. I have this with 3.9_rc4:

Testing linux-3.9-rc5. Seems a lot better. 10 minutes uptime, 22809 interrupts.

Currently bisecting the 3.7 - 3.8 git repo. Seems like there is a problem with drm. Will report back soon.

Seems like the culprit lesion is the following:

commit 69787f7da6b2adc4054357a661aaa1701a9ca76f
Author: Daniel Vetter <daniel.vetter@ffwll.ch>
Date:   Tue Oct 23 18:23:34 2012 +0000

    drm: run the hpd irq event code directly
    
    All drivers already have a work item to run the hpd code, so we don't
    need to launch a new one in the helper code. Dave Airlie mentioned
    that the cancel+re-queue might paper over DP related hpd ping-pongs,
    hence why this is split out.

Mmmm nope. At least on 3.9.0-rc5. The patch reverses cleanly (with fuzzy) and the kernel compiles fine. At first it seemed promising (just 7 interrupts after a few minutes) but after a while i915 started interrupting again at 500 int/sec hmm

Re: [SOLVED] linux 3.8 and X4500: X11 hangs periodically

i have same stuck too after upgrade of kernel. i use i915 but on a hd3000.
should i check in someway if it is the same problem?
i was thinking about a problem with hd, but it could be i915.
otherwise thx in advance for the help.

I meant that the GPU hangs no more. The interrupts is another issue. I am investigating further on it. Will report back soon. wink

i915 interrupts are however high.

Can this patch be applied to the 3.8 kernel?
