Description Frederik Himpe 2011-04-08 09:00:20 UTC
Debian bug: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=620177

After a suspend/resume cycle, quite often X gets stuck: instead of being
shown the GNOME unlock dialog, I just get a blank screen with the mouse
cursor in the middle of the screen. Sometimes I cannot move the mouse cursor anymore, but not always. Sometimes GNOME's unlock dialog is partially visible as a grey area, but without a visible text entry field.

X is not using 100% of CPU time, I can still switch to a console and back
Restarting the gdm3 service (thus restarting X), gives me a working X
again. There are no obvious errors in dmesg, Xorg.0.log nor
.xsession-errors. Often when this problem happens, I moved from dual head to single head configuration while suspend, but this may be just coincidence.

In my GNOME session, I'm using compiz.

I should also have added that I'm using a Dell Latitude E6400 system with this graphics chipset:

Comment 3 Chris Wilson 2011-04-11 14:24:28 UTC
Frederik mentioned on irc that he thought it might be correlated with going from two output to a single output across suspend/resume. He included an trace-cmd record -e i915 that showed that the ddx was still rendering, so the question remains: where are we rendering to?

[Hint for future self: I need to compare the target of the execbuffers with the current object attached to the scanout.]
Comment 4 Frederik Himpe 2011-04-17 14:24:48 UTC
I have done some testing, and I'm now pretty sure that the move from dual head to single head across suspend/resume is indeed the trigger: every time I move from dual head to single head across suspend/resume on my system, this problem happens.
Comment 5 Frederik Himpe 2011-05-13 00:11:30 UTC
This bug still happens with 2.6.39-rc6, however a quick test seems to indicate that this bug does not happen with drm-intel-staging branch.
Comment 6 Frederik Himpe 2011-08-03 11:05:15 UTC
Bug still present in 3.0
Comment 7 Frederik Himpe 2011-08-29 10:19:34 UTC
How long until someone finally takes a look at this bug?
Comment 8 Chris Wilson 2012-05-09 02:21:33 UTC
Believed to be a GPU hang on WAIT_FOR_EVENT, fixed with kernel 3.4/3.5 and xf86-video-intel 2.19.0
