Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 446548
r128 driver broken when loading int10.so
Last modified: 2009-07-14 13:29:49 EDT
Description of problem:
r128 driver locks up at (II) R128(0): initializing int10. Hard locks the
system, requires a power cycle to fix.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens 100%. This is in a dual head situation. Primary head is i810,
secondary Rage128 Pro 32MB PCI. Enabling the second card and restarting X
causes the i810 monitor to initialize, albeit black, and then nothing else.
Have to power cycle. I let it run for 5 minutes without anything proceeding.
PC is a Dell Opti GX520
Was working fine in Fedora 8. Performed upgrade from 8 to 9.
Created attachment 305427 [details]
Created attachment 305428 [details]
Is attachment 305427 [details] complete /var/log/Xorg.*.log? Seems kind of short to me?
That is complete unfortunately.
I started X by running init 5 from 3. After ~5 minutes I had to power cycle the
PC (unresponsive to any/all input). Screen was backlit and in sync, but black.
My thought (albeit i'm an administrator, not a developer, certainly not a driver
writer), is that the r128 driver is getting hung up in int10.so somehow.
I could probably strace it out (though annoying at this point as I have replaced
the ati with an nvidia card). If you want me to go that route, please provide
me the precise strace you would like run. I don't want to guess at if -f is
needed, or if you have specific -e trace= options you want to see, etc.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
