Description of problem:
Fedora 30 sometimes get frozen about 5 seconds when:
1) move cursor
2) or drop a video file to a running SMPlayer instance
I can see message '/usr/lib/gdm-x-session: nvLock: client timed out, taking the lock.' in the 'journalctl -f'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.execute the below command
2.Just move cursor or drop a video file to a running SMPlayer instance
3.Watch the output of 'journalctl -f' when Gnome desktop get frozen
Gnome desktop get frozen
Gnome works smoothly
I’m using Nvidia driver.
# rpm -qa | grep nvidia
I find that it get frozen for exactly 5 seconds before working normally. It's amazing. Maybe Nvidia driver is the root cause in this case.
Hi Bugzilla :-)
Here is a bit more info for you:
1) In Fedora 29, no issues
2) Upgraded to Fedora 30 ---- issues begins as described by Charles
3) Desktop GUI/Interface/Environment that it seems to effect is Gnome 3.32
4) Random/Intermittently, the entire computer stalls for about 5 seconds, 100% CPU across all threads for the entire duration
-- at the instant that control is regained, there is an error in /var/log/messages
May 3 11:49:42 msi /usr/libexec/gdm-x-session: nvLock: client timed out, taking the lock
5) all same nvidia drivers as Charles
6) Original Linux kernel command line options when issue observed/experienced
-- kernelopts=root=UUID=fa49cb7d-7285-46d8-add2-3e2b691c1405 ro nouveau.modeset=0 rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau nvidia-drm.modeset=1 resume=/dev/mapper/fedora-swap rd.lvm.lv=fedora/swap rhgb
7) Linux kernel command line options when issue seems to be reolved
-- kernelopts=root=UUID=fa49cb7d-7285-46d8-add2-3e2b691c1405 ro nouveau.modeset=0 rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau i915.modeset=1 nvidia-drm.modeset=0 resume=/dev/mapper/fedora-swap rd.lvm.lv=fedora/swap rhgb
Either the Nvidia DRM kernel module is not quite ready for prime time OR Gnome 3.32 is using the driver incorrectly.
-- and I am leaning more to the "Gnome 3.32" because in Gnome 3.31 I didn't have any observable issues with nvidia-drm.modeset=1
As you said, I resole this issue by setting nouveau.modeset=0 to disable Nvidia DRM.

But I still don't know you guys how to trace this issue back to Nvidia DRM. I'm just very very very curious.
