Comment 1 Christopher Clapp 2017-09-20 20:06:42 UTC
My system intermittently locks up every few days. It does not seem to correspond to a particular program or action. When that happens, the screen goes to black, then returns after a few seconds. At that point, the time on the clock is static and indicates that the screen is frozen, but audio continues to play for 30 seconds to a minute. The keyboard and mouse do not affect what's being displayed, but I can Alt - SysRq - REISUB to restart.

Every time (12 crashes and counting), /var/log/kern.log indicates that

kernel: [353692.378886] radeon 0000:03:00.0: ring 0 stalled for more than 10280msec
kernel: [353692.378896] radeon 0000:03:00.0: GPU lockup (current fence id 0x00000000006e96e5 last fence id 0x00000000006e96e9 on ring 0)

just before the system locks. Different ring numbers are reported as stalling at different times.

I am posting at bugs.freedesktop.org at the suggestion of a poster from bugs.lauchpad.net.  For additional info, see:

> Christopher, are you still experiencing this bug?

Pander, the Radeon graphics card in my computer died, so I replaced it with an Nvidia card.  I didn't experience the bug again after that.
