Bug Description

Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-video-intel

Kubuntu i386 live CD (live session) 20100901 (10.10 beta candidate)

X is generally working well with this i865 (lucid did as well), but when I logged out of KDE, X crashed. Startx got me back to kdm and logged in again.

Hey there Scott, if you have the chance could you give the packages in these two PPA's a shot and see if either one fixes this problem?

Robert Hooker (sarvatt) wrote :

Scott has tried the packages and we've verified that 101_copy-fb.patch is the culprit here which is also breaking sandybridge at the moment. In the second ppa I asked him to try it included a newer version of the copy-fb patch with slightly changed logic and it did work as well, so hopefully bringing back the changes to the patch we are using will fix it up here.

I've since seen this on several other machines (mostly i945). This is a very significant issue.

Still an issue on current maverick.

Robert Hooker (sarvatt) wrote :

The problems I was chasing with the copy-fb patch on sandybridge were unrelated in the end and even though it was shown that this fault lies in the patch I have not been able to determine the problem in this case. Chris, do you have any more insight into this?

This bug was fixed in the package xserver-xorg-video-intel - 2:2.12.0-1ubuntu5

xserver-xorg-video-intel (2:2.12.0-1ubuntu5) maverick; urgency=low

  [ Robert Hooker ]
  * Disable DRI on Sandybridge chipsets. Support for them will not be released
    until the Q42010 Intel releases, which will not be pulled into maverick.
    Without this change, all 3D apps on these devices cause hangs.
    (LP: #639667)
  * Add 102_b43_pciid_update.patch. Fixes detection of a new b43
    chipset revision that is being shipped. Without this the drivers
    will not attempt to load even though this chipset is the same as
    the previous b43 ones. Backport of upstream commit 55b5fe8880.
    (LP: #640214)

  [ Christopher James Halse Rogers ]
  * debian/patches/101_copy-fb.patch: Move scratch pixmap creation to the
    drmmode_copy_fb function, and clean up after we've used it. Fixes the
    SIGSEGV in FreeClientResources when logging out of KDE (LP: #628077)
  * debian/patches/106_backport_vblank_on_server_regenerate_fix.patch:
    Backport fix for SwapBuffers hang after server regenerate. LP 628077
    was hiding this by crashing the server. Fixes kwin desktop effects hanging
    on second and subsequent logins.
  * Cherry-pick e30f0338 to free the Screen pixmap on close. Fixes a memory
    leak on server regeneration, and another crash on KDE log out hidden by
    LP 628077.

I'm not sure if I'm having this particular issues but Maverick RC shows only the boot screen after logging out and no keyboard input appears on-screen. When I ctr+alt+del the it shows it shutting down and the computer restarts as expected. I'm running the stock Intel driver powering a 945GM integrated mobile chipset.

I should further mention that I'm using xserver-xorg-video-intel version 2.12.0-1ubuntu5.

Have a look at bug 651294 and see if the work around for that solves your problem.
