Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 459325
lockup with i915_wait_irq ERROR
Last modified: 2008-10-21 18:51:40 EDT
I use the intel xorg driver, with nothing special configured in X. From time to time my X freezes and all that remains is to log in remotely and re-init X.
lcpci output for the VGA part:

It seems the same is seen on other distros as well (ubuntu, debian). See also:
where they claim it to be a drm issue ...
Other example where this is mentioned: http://email@example.com/msg533197.html
The only thing seen in /var/log/messages relevant to this is:
Aug 16 13:49:53 localhost kernel: [drm:i915_wait_irq] *ERROR* EBUSY -- rec: 7703 emitted: 7706
In Xorg.0.log, it is just mentioned that X dies ...
I thought maybe updating the xorg-intel driver might fix it (2.4.1 is out and fedora 9 uses 2.3.2), but if the problem is drm/dri-related, this won't help I guess.
I can confirm that disabling DRI fixes this, but effectively slows down all GL apps to a crawl (making it eg. impossible for mplayer to use gl as a driver).
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
