Bug Description

X.Org is stuck in a loop on resume from S3. Only doing Alt+Sysrq+K kills X and allows the system to go back to the login screen.

When it was stuck in the loop I could clearly see the laptop backlight being switched on and off while the screen remained black.

Note: installing xserver-xorg-lts-precise (and keeping the backported kernel) solves the issue

If I use fglrx-experimental-9 instead of radeon, X gets stuck when going to sleep. All I can see is a black screen with the backlight on. Just like before, Ctrl+Alt+Sysrq+K kills X and allows the system to go back to the login screen.

I could reproduce this radeon, but when I installed the kernel 12.10 released with (-17), it resumed just fine. So sounds like a regression in the kernel between -17..-22. Would need to double check with ftws and stress testing it a bit.

I tested 3.5.0-17.28 from Quantal and 3.5.0-18.29~precise1 from Precise-updates, the -17 kernel can suspend, but the -18 cannot.

During Ubuntu tag 3.5.0-17.28 and 3.5.0-18.29, there are two upstream stable releases 3.5.7 and 3.5.8.

3.5.7 can suspend (with fglrx), 3.5.8 cannot.

3.5.7 (with fglrx) resumes with the black screen. The led on the monitor is not lightened on.

Keng-Yu Lin (lexical) wrote :

With 3.5.0-22.34 kernel (with fglrx), there is another way to reproduce this. On the menu on the right top, choose "logout", the monitor goes blank and the lightdm login screen does not show.

To correct comment #7, I re-did the fwts s3 test with the 3.5.0-17.28 kernel, the 100% CPU consumption of the Xorg process is observed today. This usually happens in a few cycles of suspending and resuming.

I couldn't reproduce the bug with an older machine with BIOS instead of UEFI, did over 40 S/R cycles and it worked, also with my old card and the stock fglrx version from 12.10.

On some AMD graphic card, I can reproduce the issue even with the xserver-xorg-lts-precise and quantal backported kernel (3.5.x).

The 100% Xorg CPU consumption can also be reproduced by logging out from the desktop system (back to lightdm) besides suspending the system.

Both scenarios happens with high possibility (though not always, but usually in dozens of times).

BTW, the virtual terminal switching leads to blank screen.

 When the Xorg occupied 100% CPU, ctrl+c in gdb, the backtrace:

I encountered the similar issue (Kengyu's comment#12) when testing one machine with AMD graphic (using fglrx 13.2 beta3 driver). The problem goes away after updating lightdm.

This should really be fixed in fglrx-experimental-12. Please test the package and let me know.
