GP Crash Dump
GPU Hang was observed, and the below explanation was found in dmesg.
GPU crash dump is attached.
[Jan28 22:39] [drm] GPU HANG: ecode 6:0:0x85fffffc, in gnome-shell , reason: Hang on rcs0, action: reset
[ +0.000002] [drm] GPU hangs can indicate a bug anywhere in the entire gfx stack, including userspace.
[ +0.000000] [drm] Please file a _new_ bug report on bugs.freedesktop.org against DRI -> DRM/Intel
[ +0.000001] [drm] drm/i915 developers can then reassign to the right component if it's not a kernel issue.
[ +0.000000] [drm] The gpu crash dump is required to analyze gpu hangs, so please always attach it.
[ +0.000001] [drm] GPU crash dump saved to /sys/class/drm/card0/error
[ +0.000052] i915 0000:00:02.0: Resetting chip after gpu hang
Hello, I think I’ve seen this before when the GPU was not able to get enough watts from the power supply. The log indicates the GPU was able to move on. Was this the case. There are brown outs based on insufficient power from a power company. If you see a lot of these please invest in a Unterruptable power supply from a relyable company such as ApC or cyberpower. What is the specs of the power supply if you don’t mind me asking. If this error persists we can walk you through how to enable IOMMU should this be an option in the bios.
Definition from Wikipedia
“In computing, an input–output memory management unit (IOMMU) is a memory management unit (MMU) that connects a direct-memory-access–capable (DMA-capable) I/O bus to the main memory. Like a traditional MMU, which translates CPU-visible virtual addresses to physical addresses, the IOMMU maps device-visible virtual addresses (also called device addresses or I/O addresses in this context) to physical addresses”
Is this a physical or virtual machine context.

Power Supply Specs
Thanks for the reply.
This is a physical machine. I use VMs almost daily, but at that moment no VM was active.
I have placed the PSU spec image in the attachments.
This could be the first time this has happened.
I say "could", because this was the first time the system hung without having any GPU intensive tasks running, or this was the first time I cared to look into the "dmesg" log.
Thank you for pointing out IOMMU, will search more about it.
Hello Sumit, new mesa 17.3.6 release fixed various gpu hangs reported with games and DEs, could you try it if issue still reproducible? Thank you.
try add in .drirc (it fix for me):
<device screen="0" driver="i965">
<application name="java" executable="java">
<option name="mesa_no_error" value="true" />
<option name="always_flush_batch" value="true" />
In my case it was an error in Batch Buffer.
