Cinnamon crashing - GPU Hang

Post by Takehiko » Sat Nov 10, 2018 3:56 pm

I just got this brand new Mint Box Mini 2. It came with Mint 19 on it and I was expecting everything to just work. But Cinnamon keeps randomly crashing on me. When it happens I see something that looks like screen tearing, then is freezes for a 15-30 seconds and I get a popup saying that it's now running in Fallback Mode.

Nothing listed in System Reports but I see this in dmesg output:

Code: Select all

[  490.811354] [drm] GPU HANG: ecode 9:0:0x85dffffb, in cinnamon [1614], reason: Hang on rcs0, action: reset
[  490.811374] i915 0000:00:02.0: Resetting rcs0 after gpu hang

[  522.802393] i915 0000:00:02.0: Resetting rcs0 after gpu hang
I haven't found any single thing that triggers it, but it does seem more prevalent when there's a lot of windows open.

I would really appreciate anyone's help on this. Given that the log message is talking about the GPU I want to know if this is hardware issue so I can get that resolved by the manufacturer while it's still under warranty.

Not sure if this is related but I also found this in the .xsession-errors

hi Takehiko!

I'm new to linux and not sure how to help but did want to mention something I find curious about your outputs shared. I see no "Desktop" listed in your inxi results rather 'Console: tty 0' whereas my results don't list console, rather 'Desktop: MATE 1.20.1' right in front of Distro: Linux Mint 19 Tara. This tells me there is no DE loaded. :|

also, your last output, errors, it looks like your system is looking for MATE and caja-browser (MATE desktop file manager). I would expect to see Cinnamon warnings somewhere if the device has Cinnamon DE installed :?:

please continue to monitor this thread for Linux knowledgable folks to help troubleshoot this as I do not know how to easily check to see if Cinnamon DE is indeed installed, much less how to go about fixing things!

lastly, I had never heard of the fitlet line of products, and at first glance this looks like exactly what I want for a home network security project I have in mind, so Thank You for posting about this!

If you bought a new computer with Mint 19 preinstalled I think the mfr should have some help available.

redlined - I am definitely using Cinnamon. MATE is not installed.

Hoser Rob - True, I will check in with them too. But I would still appreciate the insight of anyone here as well.

Hi. My nearly exact experience also, often daily: "Resetting rcs0 after gpu hang". Can anyone point to a fix for this many months, long-lived bug?

Bug report at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1777707 where the OP's description closely matches my experience:
After using LibreOffice Impress (6.0.3-0ubuntu1) for a while, X.org freezes for several seconds; the mouse pointer is still movable, but neither LibreOffice nor KDE/Plasma reacts to it anymore. Then X.org crashes and brings me back to the login screen.
Difference is the crash occurs when using any Libreoffice application, Writer, Calc, Draw. I don't use Impress.

...................................
...your hardware setup is completely different with the OP's (he / she didn't even mentioned Libreoffice...) -
so i would suggest a separate thread to get this resolved.
In any case, from a quick'n'dirty look in your report, i'd start by updating Mesa first,
and if such still doesn't do the trick, by updating Libreoffice.

Thank you thx-1138 for taking the time to reply. Sorry to have been inexact. Hardware is indeed very different.

If I post a separate thread,
1) May I copy my post (modifying the first line to "I'm getting a 'Resetting rcs0 after gpu hang'. Can anyone point to a fix for this many months, long-lived bug?"
2) Where should the thread be posted: Main Edition Support Desktops & Window Managers Cinnamon or a different one?
3) Is there any other information which should be included?

Thanks again.

...i would assume under 'Software' if it's a Libreoffice issue?
Did you updated Mesa from Update Manager? Current version is 18.0.5 for 18.x / xenial (and you have 17.2.8 above).

thx-1138 , how did you get back to the 21st century, didn't like it much in the 25th I'm sure!
OK, you wrote, "Did you updated Mesa from Update Manager? Current version is 18.0.5." So yes, that is now done. Had to figure out that Synaptic has different icon for upgradeable packages, and then how to force it, etc. So now inxi -F reports 18.05. I'll see over the coming days if this solves the problem. If not, Libreoffice is already the most recent, but I could downgrade it a bit from the 1:5.1.6~rc2 build to 1:5.1.2 xenial. If it gets fixed, I'll edit with a "solved".

If you still get the same issue even after Mesa has been updated - just ask, and we'll try to figure it out step by step...

I updated the BIOS on my system and then did a completely clean install of 19 Mate this time, instead of Cinnamon. Within about 10 minutes of logging in I get the same crash.

Here's the dmesg output this time:

hi again Takehiko,

I searched for other possible leads on this and wish I was more experienced with Linux and able to offer actual help. One issue I read about in the fit-pc forum may have lent a clue on gpu hang was heat during "graphics intensive applications" (OS Crashes, freezes, unexpected reboot,etc) as quick as 10-15 minutes of what I'd consider normal use (watching youtube videos? ugh)

One user with issue mentioned a ram upgrade may have been problematic, even though memtest runs were fine, but it sounded like dev's got the word and tested it out thoroughly finding no issue and the advice was to RMA device back to them for a replacement. Certainly not the best option (IMO) but it may be something wrong with hardware.

I'm ashamed to share this link as it is from 2012, is on their IntensePC line and, well, may just be a waste of time altogether- I'll let you be the judge of that. http://www.fit-pc.com/forum/viewtopic.p ... ang#p11901

I'm still holding hope this thread will catch attention of the Linux experienced in this fine forum and you can get it sorted as fixed or broke and need replacement. I also think it may be worth your while to scour their forum for possible tips, if not post there for assistance as they seem pretty responsive.
http://www.fit-pc.com/forum/index.php

I also ask that you do continue to monitor this thread for other responses, as well if you do find a solution to share it here so others with similar issue may find help. Thanks~

Hey everyone, just wanted to give an updated. I ended up filing a bug with the Open Desktop project since they had a number of other bugs with similar errors. Here's a link to mine: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=108736

But the issue was too annoying to deal with while waiting for them, so I ended up RMA'ing the unit. Hopefully the Free Desktop folks can figure something out but I need to get a working system... :)
