[SOLVED] Random hang/freze on reboot/shutdown/suspend, only under Arch

Disclaimer: I'm not looking specifically for a solution here. If you have one, sure  that's cool, but I'm focusing on how to investigate and analyze that kind of issue (which is, in my experience, not that rare).

I've just bought a Gigabyte Brix to be used as an HTPC. The exact model is GB-BXBT-1900.
I've installed 4 GB of 1.35V RAM (Corsair CT51264BF160B), which is supported by this model, and a Kingston SSD (V300 60GB).
Then of course, I've installed Arch x64 with a base system and Xorg with DE (Xfce).

Everything went smooth and the system is working 95% of the time as expected: it's fast, silent, and fresh.
But.
I have two major problems with it, that prevent me from fully enjoying this little piece of hardware under Archlinux.

1st problem: hang/freeze on reboot, shutdown or suspend

When I try to suspend, reboot or shutdown (yes, those three), the machine freezes and I'm forced to shut it down "manually" (press the power button for > 5 sec.). It's not *always*, but let's say 9/10 times.
When trying to reboot or shutdown, Xorg quits, and I get a few console lines, but the final "Restarting system..." (or something similar) that usually appears before the drop of power, never comes. I waited 30 minutes and it still hung.

FYI I first tried to uninstall packages, drivers, even Xorg and all the daemons that could be there, and it still happened. So I tried to make a fresh install from scratch and it even happened with the LiveCD! At the end of the install, after leaving arch-chroot, the reboot also hung and never restarted the machine. I could also reproduce the problem with this new install, even though the system was extremely light (only the base packages installed by pacstrap).
I tried to debug shutdown with systemd but of course it gave me nothing, as the problem seems to be at the far end of the process. I also tried to use the LTS kernel but no luck. Finally I installed Debian 7.8 and I can see no issue of that kind so far. I'm assuming it's then linked to something from Arch (systemd?).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

2nd problem: hang/freeze with videos on VLC, SMPlayer or Flash player

I don't know if it can be linked to the first one, but I get random hangs/crashes when watching videos. It can happen twice in 20 minutes, or only after a few hours.
I have strictly no info in the logs, and don't even know if it's a kernel panic or something else. All I can do is power off the PC and reboot it.

I know those two issues may be totally unrelated, but as they kinda produce the same results (crash, freeze), I thought it might be interesting to mention them together.

Thanks for your help.


Edit: Also tried to disable sound and network chipsets from the BIOS, but it didn't make any difference.

Edit 2: Some hardware and system info below.

Re: [SOLVED] Random hang/freze on reboot/shutdown/suspend, only under Arch

Please guys, any hint about how to figure out what's going wrong in any of those cases?

Edit: I keep on searching. Last thing I tried was to go full "21st century style" with UEFI/GPT (I was initally with BIOS/GPT), but it does not change anything (I was hoping for a buggy BIOS/UEFI).

Re: [SOLVED] Random hang/freze on reboot/shutdown/suspend, only under Arch

Sorry to bump again, but I suppose it may help to update this post with my last experiments.

I updated my system and it's now running with kernel 3.18.5-1. I replaced the SSD with a hard drive, still failing.

I know now that rebooting using SysRq always works. Following a search about that I found a post that was talking about buggy ACPI (yet another one...) with P-states, so I tried to add intel_pstate=disable to kernel but it still hangs on reboot/shutdown.

Nothing in the BIOS setup seems to be of any help (at least to me), it's quite spare.

Edit: found a very interesting topic about that kind of issue but it does not work for me.

Re: [SOLVED] Random hang/freze on reboot/shutdown/suspend, only under Arch

Hello, I`m no expert, but maybe you need the poweroff shutdown hook in your initramfs?

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/mkinitcpio#HOOKS

edit: oh I just saw that your devices are being properly unmounted so that doesn't seem to be the case.

Adds shutdown initramfs support. Usage of this hook was strongly recommended before mkinitcpio 0.16, if you have a separate /usr partition or encrypted root. From mkinitcpio 0.16 onwards, it is deemed not necessary. | Unmounts and disassembles devices on shutdown.

good luck though.

That could have been a good thing to check, but no unfortunately it does not work. Thanks anyway for your help!

Re: [SOLVED] Random hang/freze on reboot/shutdown/suspend, only under Arch

Latest update:
I've tried Arch i686 instead of x64, no difference.
I've installed Fedora 21 Workstation x64, with UEFI/GPT and systemd 217, it works flawlessly (except that of course, it's damn slow to boot compared to Arch...). No issue to shutdown or reboot.

So depressing...

Edit: Tried to downgrade systemd to 217-8 on Arch, but the problem's still there. I guess it's not linked to systemd but to something from the distro itself.

Re: [SOLVED] Random hang/freze on reboot/shutdown/suspend, only under Arch

As a last resort, I booted the latest Manjaro live CD (0.8.12, using systemd 217, if it's of any importance but I doubt) and the symptoms are the same here again: reboot hangs from the live environment. It's not a surprise since the base system is the same, so there must be something to investigate out of this, but I still don't know how. Again, any help would be much appreciated.

have you guys tried disabling ehci in bios and use xhci instead?

Re: [SOLVED] Random hang/freze on reboot/shutdown/suspend, only under Arch

Perhaps the answer is in getting a custom kernel (either reconfigure the official kernel  or donwload one from the aur or smth).  It doesn't hurt to try since you can always go back to the other one.

(EDIT: nevermind. I just reread the op I saw that you have tried another kernel.)

It appears that it's one of the last settings in the BIOS I did not alter. When displaying the available options though I can only see three:

XHCI Mode:
- Enabled
- Auto
- [Smart Auto]

(Love when options are called "smart", this always means a lot.)

So I turns out I cannot disable it, but I'll try each option and see how they work.

Re: [SOLVED] Random hang/freze on reboot/shutdown/suspend, only under Arch

And the winner is: m4lorcl, with only one post and one line, and one terrific advice! smile
So finally, setting XHCI mode to "Auto" did not work. But setting it to "Enabled" allowed me to reboot 6 times in a row, from console and from X, and also to suspend and restore the machine successfully.

It proves again (if it was necessary) that "auto" options in the BIOS are to be banned, not to say killed with fire, especially if they're called "smart".

I'm marking this thread as solved, even though I still have to check that my second issue is also solved (crashes when playing videos). If it's not, I'll start a new thread later.

Thanks very much m4lorcl!


PS: I realize this is the second time I encounter a major issue leading to crashes with an "Auto" option in a Gigabyte BIOS. First time was with the "PCI-E Gen" setting on a Z87-D3HP...

Re: [SOLVED] Random hang/freze on reboot/shutdown/suspend, only under Arch

Found a solution that may help your 2nd issue. Intel Cstates are not handled properly in the 4.2 kernel. You need to add intel_idle.max_cstate=1 to your linux command line in GRUB. Hope that helps someone. Here's the source: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93214

It does seem so. That's why I'm sticking with kernel 3.14. It's perfectly stable and for the moment I see no drawbacks.

Kernel 3.16 is also stable with J1900 series...I have one using the Intel HD Graphics and another using Nvidia...I had to downgrade xorg and nvidia drivers for the nvidia one as well...both are mythtv frontends...I do have a newer revision of J1900 from Asrock that is perfectly stable with Kernel 4.2 series...seems to be older revisions that have this power state issue...

Ah, interesting. So it might not only be a software issue after all.

Re: [SOLVED] Random hang/freze on reboot/shutdown/suspend, only under Arch

Hi i had the same problem with BXBT 1900 : freezing randomly (at least one time / day) under Arch an Debian stable. I'm not good enough to diagnose the problem and find the origin but i don't have any more freezing problem since i install xscreensaver with Arch. Its strange but it's true...
I've tried many others solutions finds on the web but none worked.
