Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 497921
Xine with xv sometimes hangs X
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:23:19 EDT
Description of problem:
When running xine with xv, Xorg will sometimes hang immediately. It seems to be about a 50% probability. I can run it two or three times no problem, then have the problem three times in row. There are no error in dmesg, /var/log/messages or Xorg.0.log.
When it hangs, killing -9 Xorg does not recover X. I've also tried a 'vbetool post' before killing Xorg. While that displays some POST information on the screen, Xorg is still unable to start. A system reboot is the only method that seems to work.
I tried running the newly available intel_gpu_top immediately after the hang:
task percent busy
Row 0, EU 1: 100
Row 0, EU 2: 100
Row 0, EU 3: 100
Row 1, EU 0: 100
Row 1, EU 1: 100
Row 1, EU 2: 100
Row 1, EU 3: 100
Setup Engine: 100
The intel_gpu_top reported the same after the 'vbetool post' and restarting Xorg.
Unfortunately, intel_gpu_dump (assuming useful information might be obtained with it) was unusable (Bug 497918).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
About half the time
Steps to Reproduce:
Either normal operation, or an unrecoverable Xorg hang.
Normal video playback
Additional info: Intel G45/X4500HD, kernel-184.108.40.206-102.fc11.x86_64
I just wanted to note that mplayer with xv does not cause this problem.
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, if available) 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 (if you have one) 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.

The system is using EXA and nomodeset. I can't run with KMS+UXA because of bug 496516.
