mesa problem

Hi everyone,

it appears that the newest version of mesa has a problem. I updated it and then immediately had to downgrade it, because it broke Xorg.

Re: mesa problem

I can confirm this, same situation here, downgrading solved it for the moment.

Same here, it fails at the end of boot, Lightdm fails after Xorg dumps number of exceptions (similar error output as OP).

Re: mesa problem

Can confirm. I also have a GTX 1060. I wonder if this is NVIDIA-specific or breaking for everyone.

Re: mesa problem

What the OP posted looks just like what I have with an old intel dual core machine. Downgrading mesa did not fix it.

Edit:

See this thread:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 5#p2140345

I was wrong. Mesa update was a part of the problem.

Re: mesa problem

Same here, using SDDM. "Caught signal 11 (Segmentation fault). Server aborting". Downgrading mesa from 1:23.3.2-1-x86_64 to 1:23.3.1-1-x86_64 fixed it for me.

If some other pacman newbie is googling the solution for this exact problem, run:

cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg
sudo pacman -U mesa-1:23.3.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst


nVidia RTX 3060 gpu

Re: mesa problem

Can we please also see the not-relevant part of the xorg log?
Eg. why are you loading the swrast module?

Eg. why are you loading the swrast module?

According to this article, one can use glxinfo and glxgears for X11 to verify that hardware acceleration is working correctly. This is the output of glxinfo for me:

name of display: :0.0
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.4
[..]

However these two commands are part of the mesa-utils-package. As one can see from the description of mesa-utils it includes the mesa-package as a dependency. So by installing mesa-utils I got mesa installed as well. And if one looks at the files within this package one can see the relevant file from the Xorg-log: usr/lib/dri/kms_swrast_dri.so . This is the answer to your question by installing mesa-utils I got kms_swrast_dri.so installed. If I uninstalled mesa and mesa-utils now, I would lose glxgears and glxinfo. However I like both tools. They give me reassurance that my NVIDIA-hardware acceleration is working as expected.

Re: mesa problem

In other words to my knowledge I didn't do anything directly in order to load swrast. (But indirectly I installed mesa-utils with the required dependencies.)

Thanks, Seth. I think, it worked. At least I managed to upgrade mesa to the current version 1:23.3.2-1. This is, how my Xorg-log looks like now:

By the way I commented out the following lines in my /etc/default/grub, which I put in there a long time ago in order to have a good looking tty-console. But now I commented in GRUB_GFXMODE=auto and GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep.

GRUB_GFXMODE=auto
# GRUB_GFXMODE=1600x1200x32

GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep
# GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=3840x2160

Even though I commented out the settings with the "magic" numbers, I still got a good-looking system-text-console by applying your suggestions. Thanks for that! However I decided to only apply the first suggestion. It appears that "initcall_blacklist=simpledrm_platform_driver_init" wasn't necessary in my case. Unfortunately GRUB's UI doesn't look that well anymore. Should I comment out GRUB_GFXMODE=auto once again and comment in GRUB_GFXMODE=1600x1200x32, while leaving GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep commented in?

Re: mesa problem

No, isn't - I'm actually just posting a textblock about the simplydumb device wink

You can configure grub as you see fit, it's not related to the kernel driver (which is why enabling modesetting can't prettify it)


… now let's see wether the others can confirm the cause/solution.

Re: mesa problem

Same here with vncserver. Downgrading mesa fixed this..

Re: mesa problem

can confirm that 'mesa 1:23.3.2-1' breaks xorg when using nvidia drivers.
was doing a routine upgrade of all my machines today and the one with the nvidia card had black screen with white flashing cursor, so i just figured it was time for me to actually enable early kms + kernel parameters according to the wiki which i hadnt yet had to do, which of course fixed the problem and i thought nothing of it.
then i read this post so i thought id have a play with downgrading mesa and sure enough it works perfect without early kms + kernel params.

just to be clear to run with 'mesa 1:23.3.2-1' you need to enable early kms via the nvidia modules (nvidia, nvidia_modeset, nvidia_uvm and nvidia_drm) in mkinitcpio.conf AND also by adding kernel parameters "nvidia_drm.modeset=1 nvidia_drm.fbdev=1" NOT via '/etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf' , its all as per the wiki i just wanted to make it clear to those who are pulling their hair out

Re: mesa problem

Same situation here, can finally boot into KDE after downgrading mesa & lib32-mesa

BTW, after reading all the above, seems enabling the DRM kms is another solution, is it recommended?

Re: mesa problem

PSA: DO NOT DOWNGRADE MESA, FIX YOUR SETUP

* Early KMS is a good idea esp. when you automatically start a display server
* KMS is a mandatory prerequisite for wayland
* The relevant aspect here is to "hint" at the kernel to deactivate the simpledrm device
The likely problem is
https://lore.kernel.org/dri-devel/20210 … n@suse.de/

Patches 3 and 9 add a hand-over mechanism. Simpledrm acquires it's framebuffer's I/O-memory range and can be hot-unplugged by a native driver.
The native driver will remove simpledrm before taking over the hardware. The removal is integrated into existing helpers, so existing drivers use it automatically.

and the nvidia doesn't, though quite frankly, I'm not convinced that the built-in drivers do that reliably, the device still shows up at times in xorg logs (might be because of late KMS)
Either way, it'll cause interference so status quo for nvidia users is to block that at all costs - and anyone else at suspect of drm issues.

Personally I think the troubles it causes by far outweigh the possible benefits.
I don't care about a flicker free boot, that process happens like once a month only anyway and typically while I'm fetching caffeine supplies. I don't look at a successful boot process, that's like watching paint dry.

Re: mesa problem

Had this issue on a Thinkpad x230 (Intel HD Graphics). For now I've opted to downgrade...

I agree with the downgrade message but as long as it is not fixed by either Nvidia or the Mesa folks, downgrading is the only option. And only downgrading mesa is necessary, no need to fiddle with Grub or anything else.

Re: mesa problem

No, it's not.
Block the simpledrm device and this isn't about "fiddling with grub" - you want to have KMS enabled anyway (and doing so in the kernel commandline will let the kernel know that you're not interested in the simpledrm device)

Downgrading/pinning a package in isolation will definitively get you in trouble sooner or later on a rolling release. It's the worst possible approach here.

Re: mesa problem

Had this issue on a Thinkpad T480 (Intel HD Graphics), Xorg segfaulted. My Solution: I temporary swiched to extra/mesa-amber.

EDIT: mesa-amber is bullshit. See my first post on page 3, howto switch to modesetting.

Re: mesa problem

Similar impact, but different cause (well, ultimately probably a mesa bug in the swrast module)
W/ xf86-video-intel you'll have to use mesa-amber to not run into

and subsequent software emulation, but you didn't want to use the latter anyway.

You have a kaby lake CPU, so you don't want any of this.
You want to switch back to mesa and remove xf86-video-intel

Re: mesa problem

With both setups that are causing problerms:

YOUR SETUP WAS ALREADY BROKEN

All that happened here is that it broke further. Downgrading leave things broken, just kinda working. Fix it, don't embrace the brokenness.

Re: mesa problem

Was having issues with Xorg under virtualbox [running an archlinux vm]. Thought it odd as it was fine a day ago.

I found this thread and tried using mesa-amber package and it works fine again now.

My desktop seems unaffected but I am using a more recent graphics card.
