Intel GPU GM965 hangs !

Postby txusff » 07 Sep 2014, 14:45

I have a laptop with Intel graphics GM965, when i use midori to browse internet , within five minutes the gpu hangs.

I can access to the laptop through ssh and read the logs, the system is up, but the gpu is dead. I can switch to the consoles CTRL+ALT+F1:F6 but the screen is black.

Code: Select all

[  196.707160] [drm:i915_hangcheck_hung] *ERROR* Hangcheck timer elapsed... GPU hung
[  196.707190] [drm] capturing error event; look for more information in /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_error_state
[  197.210169] [drm:i915_reset] *ERROR* Failed to reset chip.


I tried several original versions , from 3.8.1 to 4.3.0 and always fails.
I tried boot changing some parameters of i915 module, but still fails.

¿What i can do?

This laptop with Mint-17 livecd works fine

Which version of midori is included in Linux Mint? Midori in SysRescCD is 0.5.5.
Unfortunately it is not the latest version 0.5.8, which is available here http://www.midori-browser.org ..

Another option is Firefox, it is available here as a module:

The problem not is midori.

With the version 3.0.0 the GPU works ok. And running Midori (unpacked from sysrcd 3.0.0) in 4.3.0 the GPU hangs.

Ok. What about version 4.3.1 of SystemRescueCd ? Did you try both the standard and alternative kernel?
