Re: [K12OSN] drm i915_hangcheck_elapsed on client

Hi Roland,

I've seen a similar message too many times to count. I don't use RHEL, but have seen it a lot with Ubuntu/Debian LTSP setups that we deploy. There are bugs in the Linux Intel Graphics driver that cause this. There are a number of adjustments you can make to try and remedy this, including upgrading/downgrading both the kernel and the intel graphics driver and adjusting acceleration options in custom xorg.conf files for your thin client, but it's a mixed bag. You basically just have to try different combinations of adjustments until you find something that works. Different techniques seem to have different mileage on different hardware. It can be very time consuming. If you google the error message you'll find a lot of info about.

I've had my client freeze up, temporarily, a number of times. Not every day, not with high-frequency, but more than once a week. Today, after it recovered, I launched a local xterm and found this in /var/log/messages

Sep 7 11:05:08 client-192 kernel: [drm:i915_hangcheck_elapsed] *ERROR* Hangcheck timer elapsed... GPU idle, missed IRQ.

The previous log message is from the previous evening, the next if from me lauching the local xterm.

The client is a Thinkpad 420s with a Core i5 and the integrated Intel GPU. Since that's a new addition for RHEL/SL 6.1, it's probably not client related, but I thought I'd bounce it around here first.
