Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 121782
any fix for bug reported?
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:06:37 EDT
Description of problem:
1)System hangs -- mouse cursor disappears
then console screen locks up. Must reboot to recover.
2) Error log reports the following just before the system hangs:
kernel:[drm:radeon_freelist_get] *ERROR* returning NULL!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
not sure how to reproduce but systems and hangs are re-occurring
with this newly installed kernel. In week and a half, system
has hung 3 times.
Steps to Reproduce:
Would like a fix to stop the system hangs.
System did not hang with former kernel 2.4.18-27.7 Cannot go back
to the old kernel for security reasons.
RHL 7.3 is EOL and no longer receives updates from Red Hat.
Since this is a redhat generated error message, can
you atleast find out what the error means, in english?
Is it telling me that the radeon driver doesn't work with
this kernel or is it telling me that there is a memory (drm)
problem? If memory problem, on-board memory or video memory?
Any insight would be helpful.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
