SuSE Leap 42.3 package drm-kmp-default does not work properly on Acer Veriton M480G

Christoph-Erdmann Pfeiler
Gentle reader,


please look - if You are interested - onto the appended file containing
the lspci output.


The drm-kmp-default version is 4.9.33_k4.4.76_1-3.2


The graphic is a 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller.


The graphic display and the keyboard froze, while the system was still
available over the net, a xrdp server was not affected and remained
fully operable (therefore I do have a thin client on my desk ;-)))


Please tell, whether I should file a bug report (or not :-/)


Yours sincerely

Possibly a bug that was already fixed in the upcoming update, or
possibly a still remaining issue.

Please check drm-kmp update at
  http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:/Maintenance:/7039/openSUSE_Leap_42.3_Update/x86_64/

You'd need to uninstall drm-kmp-default at first, then install it
again.  It's a known problem of the conflicts with the same version.


thanks,

Takashi

Dear Takashi,
gentle reader,


http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:/Maintenance:/7039/openSUSE_Leap_42.3_Update/x86_64/drm-kmp-default-4.9.33_k4.4.76_1-5.1.x86_64.rpm

did not work, i.e. the error persisted.

No problem for me, because I can work again completely untroubled and
productive, which was not the case with any version of drm-kmp-default
installed.

Yours sincerely

I also had similar problem in DELL laptop with integrated  Intel
i5-4300M GPU (4th Generation, Haswell). This update for me fixed issues
related with i915: desktop no longer hang, KDE Plasma no longer notifies
about graphics reset, no longer so often opens DrKonqi for Plasma crash
or various other components, desktop no longer restarts at high usage of
computer. Note, I needed to restart computer to make effect of updated
drm-kmp-default (just update in running system did not changed
situation). Thanks!

What was associated bug number for this update?

Re: SuSE Leap 42.3 package drm-kmp-default does not work properly on Acer Veriton M480G

Gentle reader,

I did - as a matter of course - reboot my machine before and after each
installation respective deinstallation of drm-kmp-default.

The malfunction is clearly an effect of a race condition.

I am using fvwm2/xdm, very well established, definitely non-"cool"
pieces of software consuming a very little amount of system resources.

The main "fat" application is a Mozilla Firefox, which runs several
JavaScript based system monitoring tools (Icinga, code produced by High
Energy Physicists) and consumes a lot of memory.

The login prompt of xdm was garbled (blank) after the initial system
startup reliably, after a "systemctl restart display-manager" after the
completion of the boot process, from a text console or via xrdp it
showed not defects.

The system went into trashing - I was able to monitor this by a thin
client on xrdp - during movement of windows, e.g. xterm, implying
directly handled memory transfer under drm.

The locally connected keyboard and mouse were disabled, too.

Killing the local X server (from the xrdp session) helped several times,
while the xrdp server did not cause problems.

Yours sincerely

Christoph-Erdmann Pfeiler

The Leap kernel version doesn't matter much regarding this problem
since the GPU driver function is provided by drm-kmp, not by the
kernel.  On Leap, kABI is kept compatible, thus the KMP is keep linked
to the newer kernel.  So the question is whether the newer updated
drm-kmp works better or not.

But, from the given bug reports so far, 4.9.x kernel doesn't seem
working better than 4.4.x for older Intel chips, unfortunately.
You can keep drm-kmp uninstalled on such platforms by simply adding
zypper lock.  That's the very advantage of upgrading the stuff via
KMP, after all.  You can easily roll back to the previous stable
state as of SP2.
