Card info

I'm using the opensource radeon driver. When I do suspend (with s2ram or pm-suspend), it goes to sleep without problems. 

But when I come back my screen is freezed and some stuff not repainted correctly. However the system is still running, I can login from ssh and kill the X server and start a new one without problems.

I tried to use the vbetool. With vbestate restore, the display flashes up when I run the restore command manually and then I can move the mouse pointer... however only the mouse pointer, and it does not change when I move over windows.

All this is _only_ the case when I'm using desktop effects (kwin's desktop effects). When I disable those effects the restoring process works.

Attached is my card info, xorg.conf.


xorg-server: 1.5.3
mesa: 7.2

Ok here is the X.org.log file. The dmesg output had nothing interesting, neither var/log/messages.

This error effects my installation as well. Sometimes my computer will actually lock up after attempting to come out of sleep mode, even to the point where keyboard commands no longer work and all I have is graphical corruption on my screen. As with the other user, all issues disappear when visual effects are disabled.

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To avoid migrating out of date bugs, I am now closing all the bugs that did not see any activity in the past year.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!
