Description markus gapp 2006-11-03 09:32:45 UTC
hi, on an amd64 with 64 bit gentoo linux, kernel 2.6.18 smp, xorg 7.1, mesa 6.5.1, libdrm 2.2.0 and mga dirver 1.4.4 X freezes when switching back to a running instance from another virtual console. /var/log messages gets filled with [drm:mga_dma_reset] *ERROR* mga_dma_reset called without lock held repeatedly, xorg.log says: (EE) MGA(0): [dri] Idle timed out, resetting engine... thank you markus

Does it lock up when you switch from a virtual console to X, or when you switch from X to a virtual console? Does using an older version of the MGA driver (1.4.3 or 1.4.2) fix it?

I don't actually know when the error is happening, however the log messages begin to appear as soon as i try to switch back from a text virtual console to a previously functioning X which appears to be frozen. the screen contents is grabled in the upper third, the other parts show a static picture of the desktop. A second X instance doesn't show up at all but freezes the whole system making a reboot necessary. Could not produce error messages in the logs for this case yet. yes it also happens with version 1.4.2 and 1.4.3 (and 1.4.4) of the mga driver. thanx, markus

Same thing here, under the following circumstances (BTW, I'm using FBDev): 1) Switching to VC and back again to X 2) Starting beryl/compiz (but NOT xcompmgr) 3) Sometimes, starting glxgears

Hi, Freedesktop's Bugzilla instance is EOLed and open bugs are about to be migrated to http://gitlab.freedesktop.org. To avoid migrating out of date bugs, I am now closing all the bugs that did not see any activity in the past year. If the issue is still happening, please create a new bug in the relevant project at https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm (use misc by default). Sorry about the noise!
