Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon crashes after kernel upgrade

Post by rosenhof » Tue Mar 05, 2019 7:23 am

I got a similar issue to this with Cinnamon crashing this morning when I rebooted the computer.

Background:
Usually I upgrade using the Update Managed once or twice a week and now and then I also check for kernel upgrades.
I was running 4.18.0-14 and had the 4.18.0-15 installed but not in use since I haven't rebooted it yet.
(Recently I have also updated the nvidia driver to 390.77 and it has been working fine)

The computer was installed fresh with Linux Mint 19 Tara on the 27th of November 2018, so no upgrade from Mint 18
More details below.

Problem:
Reboot after the kernel upgrade Cinnamon crashes after login, restart won't help.

Tried so far without any luck.
Boot with previous kernel 4.18.0-14
Boot with previous kernel 4.15.0-45
Installed an booted with 4.15.0-23
Followed this solved issue with Cinnamon crashes but it was a bad idéa switching to xserver-xorg-video-nouveau 1:1.0.15-2

My solution was to change the display driver to another, in my case an open source version, and back to Nvidia again.
Now I can't switch back to nvidia driver since it's outgrayed and the only option left/preselected is "Continue using manually installed driver"


Details of my system:
I assume to much is better that to little?!

Timeshift is active so I have some hope to get the system back to where it was yesterday but finding the root cause and solve if would be a good way forward, reinstalling from scratch is not an option.

Any hints or idéas of what to try next?

Thanks in advance

Restoring to the backup from Timeshift day by day back to 2019-02-27 before I upgraded the nvidia driver didn't help
I have a few more backups to the fist one from the installation date but It feels like if Timeshift could fix it, it should have done so by now!?

There is also an option in Update manager to upgrade to 19.1 but It's not wise to upgrade an non fully functional system.
Is there a way to reinstall Cinnamon painless without loosing to much?

Edit: Have read this 'warning'

Don't try and purge Cinnamon you will kill your newly installed system.
And also this similar thread Cinnamon constantly crashes after update to kernel 4.15.0-24

@rosehof - your question deserved a fresh topic as your crash is not related to the transient packaging problem that was the ultimate cause of the issues that prompted the OP to start this thread,

Having said that the output of cat ~/.xsession-errors just after a Cinnamon crash would also also potentially be helpful

The crash appears to be something to do with upower, which Cinnamon uses in it's power applet and power settings module...
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.

Re: Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon crashes after kernel upgrade

Post by rosenhof » Thu Mar 07, 2019 6:33 am

Tried the 4.18.0-16 kernel that was available today but it didn't change a thing.

The logs just after login and the crash of Cinnamon is at the moment

Boot from a LiveUSB with Mint 19 Tara x64 or Mint 19.1 Tessa x64 doesn't crash Cinnamon
Running out of ideas here :( other that try to upgrade to 19.1 and keep my fingers crossed?!

Certainly it's an issue concerning compatibility between your installed nvidia driver and current kernel. A dire sounding one no less ("kernel memory exposure attempt") and even though that likely sounds a bit more alarmist than warranted, I pasted along the "Tainted: P" part as being the part where the kernel developers say "yah, sorry 'bout that, but you tainted your debugable, reviewable open-source kernel with some nondescript closed binary blob we know nothing about so you're on your own. Good luck!".

Given the message I would expect this to be an issue in the context of semi-recent Spectre-induced changes, and I do lightly wonder if you could possibly be helped by providing kernel parameters to disable (some of) them. I.e., any combination of "noibrs", "noibpb", "nopti", "nospectre_v2", "nospec_store_bypass_disable", c.f. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/Kn ... onControls. See here if you dopn't know how to: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/KernelBootParameters

General advise would be to switch to a different nvidia driver but I see you've already tried things. If you somehow can't any more (I expect you can if you "apt-get purge" the proper packages from the command line, but not being an nvidia binary-blob user cannot advise more specifically) I'd quickly get to the recommendation to reinstall.

And to sent an angry message to the kernel mailing list about it. Will be good for loads of fun in your inbox :-)

Note, no longer expect any of those parameters to do anything; seems related to HARDENED_USERCOPY rather than Spectre: https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/ ... onfig#L153.

The way out would be a fixed nvidia driver.

At the very least, when under 4.18.x variants, try the kernel parameter from rene's link above (great work btw), slab_common.usercopy_fallback=y
Debian maintainers themselves explicitly suggest so as well (maybe have a look at the bug report also)...

On a secondary note...spot the difference...(in the distro changelogs): here vs here.

At the very least, when under 4.18.x variants, try the kernel parameter from rene's link above (great work btw), slab_common.usercopy_fallback=y

Thanks for the help so far but the kernel parameter change in GRUB did't help
And I have the same issue when booting with the older 4.15 kernel too
as seen here

Code: Select all

System:    Host: D677 Kernel: 4.15.0-46-generic x86_64 bits: 64 gcc: 7.3.0
           Desktop: Cinnamon 3.8.9 (Gtk 3.22.30-1ubuntu2)
           Distro: Linux Mint 19 Tara

           Card-2: NVIDIA GP104GLM [Quadro P4000 Mobile] bus-ID: 01:00.0

           OpenGL: renderer: Quadro P4000/PCIe/SSE2
           version: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 390.77 Direct Render: Yes
The NVIDIA driver 390.77 is my prime suspect
Booting up on a LiveUSB uses an older NVIDIA driver (390.48) and the 4.15.0-20 kernel, Cinnamon doesn't crash on this machine.
What next while waiting for a working NVIDIA driver newer that 390.77?

The way out would be a fixed nvidia driver.
Agree

General advise would be to switch to a different nvidia driver but I see you've already tried things.
Trying to but I haven't figured out how to do so. I was hoping that Timeshift would help my but I still end up with 390.77 with the backups I have.
No luck switching from NVIDIA to nouveau or using the Intel device until a new driver is available.

Hey! to good to be true?

Just got an available update
nvidia-graphics-drivers-390 (390.116-0ubuntu0.18.04.1) bionic; urgency=medium

Will make a Timeshift backup and try it

390.116 didn't solve my issue. :(
Cinnamon crashes with both 4.15.0-46 and 4.18.0-16

Switched over to the Intel in the NVIDIA tool and uninstalled all NVIDIA 390.116 I could find using Synaptic
(Now I have an Intel logo next to the clock in the lower right hand corner instead of the NVIDIA logo)
after this the driver-manager shows that the nouveau drivers is in use.

Maybe it's not the NVIDIA driver anyway since Cinnamon keeps crashing after login?

...the 'usercopy whitelist' is certainly part of the reason it crashed above.
I'd personally try a different version of the Nvidia driver altogether, ie. not 390.x,
especially if the usercopy error would still appear after passing the parameter. You're not the only one affected...
https://forums.geforce.com/default/topi ... hitelist-/

If that's the only reason though, i can't tell myself. Now that you've switched to Intel graphics, does it still crash?
Probably a good idea to attach a complete .xsession-errors & also post a full dmesg log in case anyone spots something further: dmesg | nc termbin.com 9999

OK, I hope this helps if anyone like to work during the weekend, I will leave the office now and be back on Monday.

In the xsession-errors there is a warning

Code: Select all

Gtk-WARNING **: 15:23:04.099: Can't set a parent on widget which has a parent
I have a clock Widget on the desktop if it's relevant.

And I have been to the NVIDIA forum done some reading.
But should I still have the issues with Cinnamon now when I have switched over to use Intel/nouveau?

Re: Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon crashes after kernel upgrade

Certainly if you're now using intel+nouveau we're no longer talking about the same issue. Are you on some Frankensteinian Cinnamon/MATE system?

No, standard installation

the /usr/share/applications directory contains the following

Re: Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon crashes after kernel upgrade

Post by rene » Mon Mar 11, 2019 9:05 am

OK. It's expected you wouldn't have caja-browser.desktop and mate-terminal.desktop on a Cinnamon system; something in your user setup ("panel launcher") is still referencing them which would be to say that at least your home directory has some remnants of a previous MATE-installation present, but I'd advise against concerning yourself with that, as inconsequential.

The bit from kernel.log about the Nvidia driver usercopy thing certainly was related to the initial issue it seems; it directly proceeds the cinnamon "crash"; if switching to nouveau doesn't help I'd be inclined to say you have (or had) two problems, or at the very least that debugging any of it remotely over the internet becomes hard if not impossible.

That is, sorry, but I'll refrain from further tries then...

That seems strange to me since I haven't any previous installation, Can it be an application that I have installed that is not good for use in this enviroment? ( I think all of them are added via the Software manager and no other PPA or repositories has been added)
Can some/all "panel launcher" be disabled in some config file to see if Cinnamon can start without crashing and start in Fallback Mode?
And if so, it would be possible to re-enable them one by one to find the culprit.

This is understandable, it's not always clear if there is one or more problems and I usually try to avoid such things by only install or to any changes before I reboot and verify what I just did

I do understand that, will try to see if I can get some help from any of the inhouse developers (of which non uses Mint or Cinnamon) before giving up this issue.

Re: Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon crashes after kernel upgrade

I was first going to reiterate the advise to not bother since it would likely seem a red herring but some quick googling pointed out that the messages are probably from the Jetbrains Toolbox: https://www.jetbrains.com/toolbox/, installed possibly as a part of the InteliJ IDEA Java development environment, or PyCharm, or ..., and moreover, that it crashing Cinnamon is not unheard of: https://toolbox-support.jetbrains.com/h ... -Cinnamon-

Still too far removed from the kernel for me to comfortably expect this to be your (new) issue after having started out with a hardened-usercopy issue, but I take it that the easiest way to try would be to remove any Jetbrains product you have installed --- if indeed any --- and the way to fix it, possibly a new version thereof.
