Description roberth 2010-12-20 13:35:28 UTC
(Forwarding this from original bug reporter at http://launchpad.net/bugs/692755 )


Graphics get corrupted before the machine enters S4. I don't have a camera handy, but it's a grey pattern that looks a bit like an old-fashioned X11 stipple (though it's not just B&W, there is some R/G/B in the pattern. The pattern is not as random as static; it appears tiled, as if we're displaying tiles populated with corrupt video memory.

On resume from hibernate, the BIOS logo is not corrupt and the (not-corrupted) plymouth logo flashes for an instant. There are several seconds of a flashing white cursor at the top left of the screen too. Once X comes back I see the stipple pattern/corruption again. Both the X and console sessions are corrupted. There is a separate corrupt tile surrounding the mouse cursor (the cursor itself is not visible). Moving the mouse cursor results in the mouse-tile moving around. The machine is otherwise functional - I can (blindly) login to a console on a VT and execute commands.

Syslog from the failed resume session shows errors from drm:radeon, starting with:

Dec 19 14:36:49 ubuntu-ThinkPad-SL510 kernel: [ 1026.671568] [drm:r600_ring_test] *ERROR* radeon: ring test failed (scratch(0x8504)=0xCAFEDEAD)
Dec 19 14:36:49 ubuntu-ThinkPad-SL510 kernel: [ 1026.671570] [drm:rv770_resume] *ERROR* r600 startup failed on resume

Then hundreds of the following, with different values of IB

Dec 19 14:36:49 ubuntu-ThinkPad-SL510 kernel: [ 1029.211800] [drm:radeon_ib_schedule] *ERROR* radeon: couldn't schedule IB(11).
Dec 19 14:36:49 ubuntu-ThinkPad-SL510 kernel: [ 1029.211847] [drm:radeon_cs_ioctl] *ERROR* Faild to schedule IB !
Dec 19 14:36:49 ubuntu-ThinkPad-SL510 kernel: [ 1029.212731] [drm:radeon_ib_schedule] *ERROR* radeon: couldn't schedule IB(12).
Dec 19 14:36:49 ubuntu-ThinkPad-SL510 kernel: [ 1029.212773] [drm:radeon_cs_ioctl] *ERROR* Faild to schedule IB !

If I disable the radeon driver by adding, e.g., the made-up 'radeon.nofailboat=1' kernel parameter, the machine enters and resumes from S4 normally, with no corruption upon either entering or resuming from S4.

This is on Ubuntu 10.10 with these components:

Kernel: (2.6.37 git checkout from 20101220 also tested)

Comment 1 Alex Deucher 2010-12-20 13:41:20 UTC
Does a newer kernel (2.6.36 or 2.6.37) help?

He tried a git checkout from today with no luck, up to commit 55ec86f848a5f872fd43f5d7206464a0af419110

possible fix

Does this kernel patch help?

A video of the corruption can be seen here:

Hi, I can work around this problem by booting with "nomodeset".
Comment 8 Alex Deucher 2012-09-29 19:13:19 UTC
Is this still an issue with a newer kernel?
Comment 9 Christopher M. Penalver 2016-02-26 06:02:12 UTC
Downstream report invalid.
