Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

I upgraded to Natty Narwhal 11.04 and now my system randomly logs me out. I am using the "ubuntu classic" login option rather than unity. So far, it has only occurred while I am using Chrome, but I am almost always using Chrome, so that could be a coincidence. I have a Dell Latitude D630.

I can confirm that this has happened to me several more times. Again, it has
always happened while using chrome and it appears to usually happen right
after clicking on a link on a website (not website specific).

I'm very sure this is somehow associated with "clicking" something. Might it be a link, an option in a program or starting the program by the unity launcher link. Weired. And totally random.

Alex (ajr225) wrote :

Now I can also confirm this happening while using the terminal. I would guess that it is unrelated to browser use, unless the browser and the terminal command (and whatever everyone else is doing) access some resource that forces the system to logout.

I can also confirm that it is really annoying.

The same problem occurs sometimes here.

There is nothing specific that I'm doing when this happens.

Since this happens with GNOME2 too, it's probably a compiz bug.

I have the same problem on a laptop with switchable ati graphics running natty. I have the radeon module blacklisted, then I modprobe it and use vgaswitcheroo to disable the ati card in rc.local. My computer seems much more likely to log back out within a few minutes of logging in. sometimes it does it immediately after, other times it happens when I click on something. Let me know if anyone needs any log files.

Exact same problem here, I have a Dell Latitude D610, I'm using Ubuntu Classic, random log out generally after one click in Chrome, it can be after a click on a link but it just happened to me after closing a tab, I also had the case once while I was using the Pokerstars app in Wine 1.2.2, I can spend a whole day without this occuring but it can also occur 5 min after turning on my laptop, the only systematic trigger seems to be a mouse click.

This appears to be in some way chrome-related. I had not had this happen more than about 1 minute after log in. If I got through that minute, it was smooth sailing for as long as I used my computer. I just installed chromium after using my computer for about 30 minutes. It logged out after just a few minutes of using chromium. Attached is everything that I have modified in my system. Could this be related to switchable graphics? Or possibly the intel driver?

I can confirm that in a Dell XPS 17 with Nvidia GeForce GT 555M graphic card.

I had that happen three times. The first one was after installing Nvidia restricted drivers. They downloaded/installed correctly and before I could restart to complete the installation it just spontaneously logged out and I think that messed up the installation because my graphic acceleration stopped working after restarting.

I don't remember what was I on the second time it happened but the third one followed this chain of events...

Open emesene
Open Chrome
Close emesene
Open Thunderbird
Random logout

But as some guys told before, is >seems< to be that happens after clicking something. Not 100% sure but probably.

By "logout" do you all mean that the entire GUI crashes and GDM has to restart? That is what I have been intermittently experiencing after Natty Narwhal. Just today it happened while I was typing into gedit, not running Chromium.

I have noticed that people have experienced this problem with multiple types of graphics cards, so I am guessing that is not related. Because it is so intermittent, I am having a hard time troubleshooting it. Has anyone found a way to reliably trigger a logout/GDM crash? Has anyone experienced this on a fresh installation? Could it be some way that we have configured X/GDM/Unity?

Pi3cH (mr-pedram) wrote :

Same problem here. fresh installation of Ubutnu 11.04 running on DELL XPS M1330 (Intel Graphic card). entire GUI crashes and GUI needs to restart (log out). It might be related to recent wireless card drivers (it randomly freezes and continue on Wireless (N)).

jeffbl (jeff-mulb) wrote :

I've seen this without Chrome running at all. It is happening once or twice a day, which really makes my machine unusable, as my VirtualBox sessions are killed each time. I'm probably going to have to go back to Lucid, since my machine keeps crashing, and I also cannot suspend resume without crashing.

I experienced this problem with the broadcom wifi chip that came with my laptop and continue to experience it with an intel centrino 6200 installed, so I doubt that it is related to wireless drivers, unless it has something to do with the network manager or something else that is universal.

Ben Lin (c7lin) wrote :

Hmmm, I've been experiencing this problem repeatedly.

I have a feeling it has to do with running the amd64 version on an Intel CPU. Can anyone disprove this hypothesis?

In response to Ben Lin, I was under the impression that the 64 bit version of ubuntu was called amd64 only because amd had 64 bit CPU's on the market before intel and it was named at that time. That being said, I am not an expert and I too am running the amd64 version on an intel CPU, so there may be something to it. If I get time, I might try to install the 32 bit version and see if I still experience this problem.

@William: when it happened to me, I was running a 32 bit system in a 32 bit computer. So, this is not arch specific.

This does appear to be related to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/775705 and https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg-server/+bug/740785. This seems to be affecting laptops only. Has anyone seen this on a Desktop?

Michał Wróbel (maw) wrote :

William and Daniel, thanks for noticing the (partial?) relationship with other bugs. That's how I found this one.

badhorse, ZaHACKieL and Daniel -- you mention using nVidia cards. I run a 64-bit Maverick with nVidia card as well. In my case, the bug seems to disappear after upgrading nVidia binary drivers to 270.41.06 using ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates. Can you provide your Xorg.log after a crash (/var/log/Xorg.0.log.old copied after logging in again), so that there can be more certainty that you have the same bug as I did?

- Temporarily forced using: sudo service apport start force_start=1

- Checked /var/crash/executable_path.uid.crash but no report found there
Looks like apport fails to report the crash.
Could it be a GPU lockup? https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/Freeze

Workaround: I reported a workaround that worked with my laptop. Since then I have consistently verified the workaround. If the laptop is powered on AC main there are no crash/logouts. Auto logouts only when using battery power. Could power management linked to GPU lockup. Wild guess: Some kind of wait/timeout issue?

Regarding your workaround, I use the laptop only on power (not on battery) and in my case the logout problem still happens. So I think this is not a real workaround.

I had similar problem when I used the Leadtek nVidia GT220 graphic card on my desktop with the nVidia proprietary driver available from the Ubuntu repository.

The problem disappeared after I:
- physically removed the Leadtek nVidia GT220 from my desktop
- uninstalled the nVidia proprietary driver from Synaptics
- used the Intel HD Graphics 2000 from my Intel Sandy Bridge i5-2500

Bryce Harrington (bryce) wrote :

Fernando, good work! That shows a nearly perfect backtrace, but we're missing symbols for the first two calls (which is probably where the crash is):

#0 0x0057ffb4 in pixman_region_equal () from /usr/lib/libpixman-1.so.0
No symbol table info available.
#1 0x0018e798 in ?? () from /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/openchrome_drv.so
No symbol table info available.

Can you install the dbgsym packages for pixman and the openchrome driver and do it once more?

Also, I should also mention your backtrace is completely different than what's shown in other people's Xorg.0.log.old so is probably some other unrelated X crash. (Like I mention, every type of X crash results in the same thing - dropping you back to the login screen).

Your syslog also shows that the kernel is very sick (but not in the graphics drm stack). Hard to tell if those errors relate to the crash you're seeing, but if I had to guess, it looks like something deeper is wrong in your system and X crashing is just a side effect.

This has nothing to do with Chromium.

markoER, yes I think I have it sorted now.

Now that we have some better backtraces (thanks Maciej!), what I think most people are seeing is bug #774978. Sarvatt came up with a fix for that, which I've uploaded to oneiric and natty-proposed today. Seems likely that will resolve the problem for most people on this bug report, so I'm going to set this as a dupe. It might take a bit of time for the fix to percolate through the SRU process to natty-updates so if you find this annoying you might want to enable -proposed to get the fix (or upgrade to oneiric early!)

However, like I mentioned, Fernando has a different crash trace. Fernando your latest trace looks *really* good, but could you post a new bug report for it and we can work on it there?

For instance i have an Intel HD and a radeon 6470 HD but only my radeon had direc rendering enabled. When i switched to intel my computer automatically log out every time i opened chrome. As soon as i enabled direct rendering on my intel card random log offs stopped. I hop i helped a little bit.

btw: sorry 4 my bad english...:p

It has been happening to me for approx 1 month.
This ALWAYS AND ONLY happens to me when I CLOSE A BROWSER TAB , 99% of the time it's google chromium, and once or twice for firefox.
x86_64, intel graphics, ivy bridge, samsung laptop, wifi, pulse, and that silly "rtkit" realtime daemon.
xorg-edgers, any recent kernel.... vmlinuz-3.2.0-25-generic or one I rolled vmlinuz-3.6.0-rc3
