Description Adrian von Bidder 2010-03-22 08:43:43 UTC
Reporting directly at the suggestion in the #debian-devel IRC channel.

Some more details in http://bugs.debian.org/573264

Basically, X dies with "Failed to submit batchbuffer: Input/output error" in Xorg.log and with this in dmesg:

[ 4345.716012] [drm:i915_hangcheck_elapsed] *ERROR* Hangcheck timer elapsed... GPU hung
[ 4345.716027] render error detected, EIR: 0x00000000

[ 4359.236011] [drm:i915_gem_idle] *ERROR* hardware wedged

This is with xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.9.1-2 as packaged by Debian and the 2.6.33 (Debian:  2.6.33-1~experimental.2) kernel.

Depending on how I trigger the bug, the errors are slightly different.  Enabling compositing (KDE4) or switching to a text console (i915.modeset is off) both certainly trigger it (symptom: screen goes dark); just using X also shows the issue after 20-40min.

I tried newer intel driver (packaged by Debian: 2:2.10.902-1) and newest libdrm (c1c8bbf8), but for lack of time not in all combinations.  This exact combination showed a frozen display (instead of a black one) with a "working" mouse pointer.  Not sure if that's an improvement ;-)

Sorry for the spotty information/version coverage - I just don't get enough time to work on this as much as I'd like...

This is likely a dup of 26345, the i845 has a severe chipset bug that we've yet to address. If you get the chance, update to a recent kernel, 2.6.34-rc2, and upload the /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_error_state following a hang.

Without additional info, I'm assuming this is a dup of the nasty 845G bug.
