Description Dan Smolik 2006-03-13 23:43:53 UTC
I have build simple video kiosk system that play whole day some video.

I have use Xorg + Mplayer 1.0.pre6 + XvMC patch + DRI from CVS. All works
absolutely great with HW accel. But after 1 sometime 3 days I found in log this

 kernel: [drm:via_cmdbuf_wait] *ERROR* via_cmdbuf_wait timed out hw 1a1680
cur_addr 11fd00 next_addr 1a4d18
Mar 12 15:35:33 fish last message repeated 140 times

and after may be 1 hour system completely hang. I found some post that says that
disabling AGPDMA may help. I have upgraded to latest BIOS that may solve problem
with DMA hang. Situation is better but after few days hang. Have anybody the
same problem. I thing that this problem is HW related.

Do you still experience this issue with newer drivers ?
Please check the status of your issue.

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To avoid migrating out of date bugs, I am now closing all the bugs that did not see any activity in the past year.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