Comment 3 Martin Stransky 2010-05-07 11:49:28 UTC
It happens 2-3 times in hour and it's not related to Firefox - the same crash happened when I browsed a document in evince.

Xorg.log after crash

Comment 5 Martin Stransky 2010-05-10 14:30:49 UTC
Is there any extra info I can provide? I didn't see the bug before I moved my production box to RHEL6, everything works fine on Fedora 12.

*** Bug 592434 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 7 Lubos Kocman 2010-05-20 20:15:12 UTC
I'm having the same problems as descripted in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=592434. But I'm able to switch to the console using ctrl+alt+f#.

Comment 9 Dave Airlie 2010-05-31 02:08:33 UTC
still a problem original reporter?

crash log from today

Yes, I can still reproduce it although not every day.

Comment 11 Adam Jackson 2010-06-16 18:45:36 UTC
When this happens, please do:

# mount -t debugfs debugfs /sys/kernel/debug
# cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915/i915_error_state > /tmp/i915_error_state

and attach the resulting error state file to this bug.

Comment 12 Lubos Kocman 2010-06-17 06:38:58 UTC

I'm unable to reproduce this any more (Thinkpad T400 / x86_64)

Comment 13 Adam Jackson 2010-06-23 16:33:35 UTC
Lubos, what kernel are you running now?

Comment 14 Adam Jackson 2010-06-24 17:28:37 UTC
Removing from blocker list for comment #12.  Martin, please re-set blocker? if you are still seeing this.

Comment 15 Martin Stransky 2010-06-24 19:15:23 UTC
I haven't reproduced it since the last crash I posted here. Will update the bug when it happens again.

Comment 16 Lubos Kocman 2010-06-25 08:16:10 UTC

I'm not able to reproduce this on my desktop with:


But Xorg behaves similar during RHEL6.0 installation. May this be somehow connected to #603003?

Can anybody who suffered from this try to reproduce #603003 (Switch from Xorg to Console and back (during latest RHEL 6.0  installation)?

Comment 17 Adam Jackson 2010-06-25 19:26:29 UTC
This and bug #603003 are almost certainly not the same issue.  Even if they are, let's treat them separately instead of confusing them.

Comment 18 Adam Jackson 2010-06-28 19:42:35 UTC
Comment #15 and comment #16 sound like _this_ issue is resolved.  603003 might not be, but let's follow up on that there.

state log 2

X crashed again, second log. It usually happens when I'm scrolling a page in Firefox or pdf reader (evince).

Comment 23 Adam Jackson 2010-07-14 16:36:24 UTC
Well at least those two error state files are consistent.  They both decode to something like:

The HEAD pointer is consistently stalled at the INDEPENDENT_ALPHA_BLEND op.  I'm guessing that there's some hardware errata that means you can't change that bit of 3D state while some 3D processing is active.

Comment 24 Adam Jackson 2010-07-14 18:42:16 UTC
Martin, can you try this build and report

a) whether it's noticeably slower
b) whether you can still reproduce the lockups


Comment 25 Martin Stransky 2010-07-14 19:21:53 UTC
Okay, I'll try it tomorrow. But the graphics looks pretty slow already, in some moments (repainting whole screen for example) looks like a VESA driver instead of accelerated one. It's definitely worse user experience than I have with Fedora 12.

Comment 26 Martin Stransky 2010-07-15 08:49:26 UTC
With the packages from http://download.devel.redhat.com/brewroot/scratch/ajackson/task_2597465/ X window does not start. It keeps flashing and turning monitor on and off.

Comment 30 Dave Airlie 2010-07-19 05:40:49 UTC

does the build from here help any? it might be a bit chatty in the logs.

Comment 31 Martin Stransky 2010-07-19 07:09:40 UTC
I reinstalled my box completelly and with xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.11.0-6.el6.i686 and no crashes so far. Will check your new package.

Comment 32 Martin Stransky 2010-07-19 07:27:25 UTC
With packages from https://brewweb.devel.redhat.com/taskinfo?taskID=2606300 it freezes after login do gdm. All logs (X, X.old, messages) are clear...

Comment 33 Martin Stransky 2010-07-19 13:12:15 UTC
btw. I can reproduce the same bug on rawhide (on the same box).

Comment 34 Dave Airlie 2010-07-20 03:55:59 UTC


when finished will end up at


can you guys install that kernel on a clean EL6 and see does it enhance your experience?

Comment 35 Dave Airlie 2010-07-21 00:44:49 UTC
closing this as a duplicate of the other 945GM bug which has flags.
