Output of 'dmesg'

Description of problem:

My Thinkpad X200 has been behaving badly with Rawhide kernels: system no longer detects that the laptop lid is closed and that the onlly "useful" display is on VGA1, and screen redraw is badly displaying artifacts, no background, black borders around windows, and "display memory" when windows are moved.

Since the system consders the laptop screen to be on (even when the lid is shut), my VGA display shows a solid "gray" gdm-greeter screen: the user selection/password area is not displayed. (It is actually on the LVDS if I open the lid).

Not sure what to attach to be helpful, but I'll start with dmesg output, a copy of Xorg.0.log, and a copy of gdm/:0.log.

Let me know what else I can provide that would be helpful.

Here is what I see in dmesg:

Comment 3 Tom London 2013-09-02 14:50:16 EDT
Some more detail:

I've managed to "make this work for me as expected" (i.e., Laptop LCD detected as off, graphics working, no artefacts, etc.) by including the following 2 parameters to the grub2 boot line:


'modinfo i915' says:

parm:           modeset:Use kernel modesetting [KMS] (0=DRM_I915_KMS from .config, 1=on, -1=force vga console preference [default]) (int)
parm:           fbpercrtc:int
parm:           panel_ignore_lid:Override lid status (0=autodetect, 1=autodetect disabled [default], -1=force lid closed, -2=force lid open) (int)
Comment 4 Tom London 2013-10-23 09:41:40 EDT
I'm still seeing this with latest Rawhide:


and kernel-3.12.0-0.rc6.git0.2.fc21.x86_64

I still need 'i915.panel_ignore_lid=0 i915.modeset=1' on the boot line or the lid being closed is not properly detected, etc.
Comment 5 Tom London 2013-10-25 09:31:44 EDT
Problem persists with xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.21.15-5.fc21.x86_64 and kernel-3.12.0-0.rc6.git1.2.fc21.x86_64

Any more info I can provide that would be helpful?
Comment 6 Tom London 2013-10-25 19:56:53 EDT

I believe it is working with xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.21.15-7.fc21.x86_64:

[root@tlondon proc]# cat cmdline
BOOT_IMAGE=/vmlinuz-3.12.0-0.rc6.git4.2.fc21.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/vg_tlondon-lv_root ro LANG=en_US.UTF-8
[root@tlondon proc]# 

So, I booted without the extra i915.XX args and "it worked for me".

Comment 7 Tom London 2013-10-27 10:30:18 EDT
Hmmm... spoke too soon.

Booted again this morning; the messed up rendering returned, but the closed lid is properly sensed.
