Description Pete Snider 2003-11-11 12:42:23 EST

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4)

Description of problem:
System hangs with ATI Radeon 7200 when DRI is in used.  DRI works for
a time usually about 30 secs and then the system hangs.  No cursor
movement, cann't switch to pseudo terminal (<ctrl><ALT> <f1>), and the
only thing that does work is reset.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
XFree86-4.3.0-42, kernel-smp-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.execute glxinfo and verify direct rendering is support
2.exexute glxgears - the system will hang before status are reported.

Actual Results:  system hangs

Expected Results:  status should be reported and system continue to work.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Dan Hrabarchuk 2003-12-02 21:19:30 EST
The system can be recovered by kill -9 of the X server process.
Comment 2 Pete Snider 2003-12-03 14:25:06 EST
The system is nonresponsive, mouse is frozen, can't set focus to
another xterm or switch to virtual terminal, so sending a kill -9 to
the X server is not possible.
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2004-03-07 03:43:10 EST
Is this still an issue with the latest rawhide XFree86 and kernel?
Comment 4 Colin Charles 2004-06-14 13:33:13 EDT
Pete, does it work in Fedora Core 2, with xorg-x11?
Comment 5 Warren Togami 2004-06-14 21:11:23 EDT
Pete has not responded in a seriously long time, so I am assuming this
is fixed.  There have been a great many fixes to both kernel
XFree86/xorg-x11 since late 2003.  REOPEN only if this exact issue
still exists with FC2 + all updates.
Comment 6 Jim Cornette 2004-09-16 22:39:44 EDT
The problem is more serious now. You cannot even use this card without
locking up the machine. The version of card that I used was a PCI card.

This is /var/log/messages

While searching for bugs related to the radeon 7200 card, I stumbled on this
I cannot get as far as trying glxgears, but the hard lockup was experienced.

I hit alt-sysrq-b and then hit my reset button and it seemed to shutdown. This
seems to be happening when /dev/radeon is created. I tried with FC3T1 fresh
install and also FC3T2 RC2 and had the same type problem. This is from the
FC3T2 RC2 system.

See xorg-x11 bug listing
and the associated tester for additional failure statistics.
