This is a known bug in other distros too, e.g. Ubuntu: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/263114

Updated several packages and I'm still seeing the problem. Log output has changed, though. Hundreds of lines of this:

[mi] EQ overflowing. The server is probably stuck in an infinite loop.

Comment 8 Bryan O'Sullivan 2008-10-03 13:33:25 EDT
I actually have the intel Xorg driver working at the moment, but Jeremy says that it can't handle a suspend/resume cycle.
Comment 9 Jeremy Fitzhardinge 2008-10-06 19:08:34 EDT
For me, I can't only get the intel driver working if I run the vesa driver, edit xorg.conf and restart X.  On reboot with the intel driver, I just get a black screen.

When I does work, suspend/resume nearly works.  It resumes, and X pops up enough that I can see and move the pointer a bit, then it crashes shortly after.

This is with kernel-2.6.27-0.391.rc8.git7.fc10.x86_64, xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.4.2-9.fc10.x86_64
Comment 10 Bryan O'Sullivan 2008-10-12 15:48:25 EDT
This has every sign of a kernel bug.  The intel driver works for me if I disable acceleration in xorg.conf, but freezes otherwise.

Are there bad GEM bits in the current patched rawhide kernel?
Comment 11 Zack Cerza 2008-10-15 10:30:44 EDT
Agreed; reassigning.
Comment 12 Zack Cerza 2008-10-16 14:32:49 EDT
Looks like one or both of these fixed it:


Thanks, Dave!
