I mean gnome-shell not a classic. I grep my syslog and found out that I have the same syslog errors as the Mseries posted before.
THAT'S IT!

I did'nt find something like that in my syslog, ever!

Do you already tried this?:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg-reconfigure mdm

Sorry, you're posting too fast.
Please, try this, then reboot:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg-reconfigure mdm
Then check if the freeze happens as usual.

Yes it does. I rebooted my system, log in cinnamon, open libreoffice and a file you posted and cinnamon hangs again.
I found out that if I switch to console and do

Code: Select all

top -u _username_ | grep cinnamon
kill -9 _cinnamon_pid_ 
I can unfreez my session.

Yes, that's because you're somehow killing and restarting the cinnamon process, as when you do a cinnamon --replace.

Hmmm... did you try a ltrace -c cinnamon at the console?

Yes, but I can't do it inside cinnamon session, because only my mouse is working. I tried alt+f2 to put cinnamon --replace command but this doesn't work. And the problem is that there is no output in dmesg, Xorg log or kernel log that I can use. Before I upgrade x server I got the following error

Code: Select all

soffice.bin[3458]: segfault at 804de6f0 ip b7575f14 sp af5b7f60 error 4 in libc-2.15.so[b7543000+19f000]

But now nothing and the problem is the same.

I logged out of the cinnamon session and logged in using Gnome-classic at the log in screen and Hooya! It didn't hang up after the tests! Java, firefox and libre office worked just as fine.

So this has to do with Cinnamon or something that interacts with cinnamon. I don't know really ...

There is an difference between gnome-session and gnome-classic. Gnome-clasic doesn't use 3d acceleration and gnome-session does.Under gnome-classic there isn't gui hangs. But the problem is in fact that under cinnamon some people experience gui hangs and under gnome 3 alias gnome-session it doesn't while cinnamon is a fork of gnome-session. That means it is build on top of it and it is using gnome 3 solutions.

So i think that MDM should not be the main culprit here (mostly Cinnamon badly interacting with something_TM).

CoreI5/750 / 4 gig / Nvidia drivers / 32bits cinnamon edition.
This is my guess, too. I've had a dozen debian/ubuntu-based distros on one of my laptops and never had an issue. Mint is the first. And I've had crashes where the only difference is Cinnamon -- my work laptop has Cinnamon, no MDM, and still locked up (though it only did so once).
Does anyone actually read the thread??? Cinnamon is nowhere to be found on my system, yet I have identical problems with Mate. I may have mentioned this twice - if not thrice - in this thread. It also seems to be occurring for some Ubuntu users http://askubuntu.com/questions/145305/u ... ezes-daily, but apparently not as frequently as for Mint. So blaming Mint seems a reasonable possibility, but not Cinnamon.

Just for clarification's sake. Cinnamon is a fork of gnome-shell and runs on (unmodified) Gnome 3. It is not a fork of Gnome 3/gnome-session. Gnome-shell's "mutter" was forked for Cinnamon and is now called muffin. and yes, it does require 3D acceleration. Gnome classic is the Gnome 3 "fallback" mode and does not require 3D acceleration as you said.

Just saying.

Now, just thinking out loud here...

Personally, by what I've seen, I beginning to believe this problem is two-fold in that there's a problem on the Ubuntu side of things plus a buggy MDM. So far it's relatively few users experiencing this freezing problem which I was able reproduce on my old Thinkpad R61 but not on my desktop although MDM crashes shortly after the login screen appears. As I said previously, the latest updates appear to have cured the freezing problems on the R61 but more testing is needed to make sure. I removed MDM from my desktop and am currently running "LightDM" as my display manager and have also run "GDM". Only MDM causes problems, the others do not. That plus any type of 3D acceleration can exacerbate a problem like this. I haven't tried the other display managers on the R61 yet as I need to see if the freezing problem returns.

Also, there have been reports that the MATE version of LM 13 also has this problem of freezing on certain systems which eliminates Cinnamon in all but the 3D acceleration requirement. The other things the two have in common however is MDM and Ubuntu.

One heck of a problem. :shock:

Now for esteban1uy and everyone who is wondering if this problem is caused by something installed on Cinnamon ...
Due to a very stupid (stupid stupid syupid) mistake on my part, I had to reinstall Linux mint 13 32-bit Cinnamon again. So, after applying updates and installing Jdownloader, I tried to run the programe and Voila! ... system freezed again and same error as before. So, this is a problem in mint/cinnamon -whatever- and doesn't depend on something else installed by users.
I don't know if that coincide with kmb42vt experiment or not.
Before you ask, I only applied level 1, 2 and 3 updates.

EDIT: Also, I tried Libre Office Writer, and system freezed as fast as I insterted a table and beagn writing something in its cells.
When pressing Alt-Ctrl-Backspace (God blees it!), for a second a " Could not write bytes: broken pipes " appears before switching to the log-in screen.

To BeatSmith :
I had a freeze at the launching of Jdownloader too (i had to install Java Oracle 6 see the previous post).
It is not the only cause of freeze according to the posts.

I'm really suspecting that they are several causes to this.... it's going to take a while to go to the bottom of it.

Here my new experiment (after 14 hours running with E17 with no problem at all) i'm back to cinnamon :

I applied all the updates + the reconfigure on Mdm , tried to stress Libreoffice (insert table in Writer) no problem so far.
I'll refrain from using Jdownloader to see if the system is still stable (as it was my first cause of trouble).
I'll report back the results :
Well one 1h52 minutes after lots of tests ... no freeze.

This morning I completely removed mdm and installed lightdm. Problem is still the same. I got cinnamon hang when I open odt doc in libreoffice and drag scrollbar up and down till gui freezes. If I do the same thing under gnome 3.4 gui doesn't freezes. And now go figure it out. :roll:

Did you try forcing software rendering? That is good to be completely sure it's not something related to the graphics drivers.
Open a terminal and execute the following code:

Code: Select all

bash -c "LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 cinnamon --replace &"
Once Cinnamon reloads, it will be running with software rendering, not hardware 3D acceleration.
Then try to reproduce the freeze the way you know. It doesn't matter if you see high cpu usage because that's normal for software rendering (all the hard work is done exclusively by your main cpu, not your graphics card), the thing that really matters is if the system gets stuck, freezes, till the point to restart cinnamon even using software rendering.

By the way, this are your specs, right?:

Code: Select all

Graphics:  Card-1: Intel 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller
           Card-2: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Seymour [Radeon HD 6400M Series]
           X.Org: 1.11.3 drivers: intel (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) Resolution: 1600x900@60.1hz
           GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Sandybridge Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2 GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 8.0.
So you have hybrid graphics (Intel as integrated graphics and ATI Radeon HD 6400M as dedicated graphics).
Isn't it strange that the hardware 3D rendering (GLX) in your machine is done by the Intel card and not de Ati?

I did that and gui doesn't freezes, although there is a lot of windows flickering. And here it is a terminal output of session.I just want to say that in a both ways my cpu ang gpu temp starts to rise, of course in a software rendering much faster than in a hardware rendering. When I did this my cpu was nearly 80 degrees and gpu temp around 75.

Code: Select all

Yes, a lot of messages, but those are common. You can see them too in systems running perfectly Ok.

But that's something really interesting, that in your system there are no freezes with software rendering.


So the thing is, if you avoid using your hardware 3D acceleration, no freezes.
And you have an hybrid graphics system where the 3D acceleration is not performed by the powerful ATI card, but the weak integrated Intel graphics...

I wonder what would happen if you blacklist the Intel card and let the ATI one do all the work...

I blacklisted my radeon card and I'm using only intel . I can try this on my radeon card to to be sure. But the main question is why this is happening in cinnamon session and not in gnome 3.4 session?
