dri2proto 2.3-1
intel-dri 7.10.1-2
xf86driproto 2.1.1-1
xorg-xdriinfo 1.0.4-2
glibc 2.13-5

Steps to reproduce:

The above phenomena happened when I was using djview and xpdf to read a document. The event happened randomly which I wasn't able to reproduce exactly.

I checked the internet and found that xorg-server seems to have the above problem. I had to downgrade to xorg-server-1.9.4-1 which did not core dump so far.
This task depends upon

Is it related to this: http://www.spinics.net/lists/xorg/msg52280.html
or it is the X server and intel-drm communication problem?

No realloc here, so it's a different problem

i have a similar problem. After i upgraded my intel and xorg packages my mouse & kb stopped responding. its not a kernel panic though or a xorg crash, as i can see my desktop clock working. These are the packages i upgraded :

[2011-04-13 14:44] upgraded xf86-video-intel (2.14.0-3 -> 2.14.903-1)
[2011-04-13 14:44] upgraded xf86-video-vesa (2.3.0-4 -> 2.3.0-5)
[2011-04-13 14:44] upgraded xorg-server-common ( ->
[2011-04-13 14:44] upgraded xorg-server ( ->
[2011-04-13 14:44] upgraded xorg-xrdb (1.0.8-2 -> 1.0.9-1)

i have since downgraded my packages.

I upgrade to the latest testing today with


the problem still persists. It happens when I was reading a djvu document using djview. My other machine with Nvidia chip didn't have problem, so I suspect this is related to intel-drm & xf86-video-intel-2.15.0-1. I am now downgrading to xf86-video-intel 2.13.0-4 which seems to work a bit more stable (so far no crash when reading pdf or djvu files)

I have the same problem.

I installed the 2.13.0-4 version of the X driver and the system seems much more stable.

I found a patch in this thread, might be useful
Comment by Antonio Muñoz (tomby) - Friday, 06 May 2011, 05:46 GMT
I built a package with this patch. Now I'm testing the generated package in my system.
Comment by Liao Haohui (liaohaohui) - Friday, 06 May 2011, 12:04 GMT
Not sure if the patch will be helpful to my Acer As 4740-431G32Mn I5 which has i915 intel chipset. So fixing i965 wouldn't really help me.
Comment by Antonio Muñoz (tomby) - Friday, 06 May 2011, 20:03 GMT
Probably, but the patch include a fix in a header file intel_batchbuffer.h used in other drivers. Lets give it a try. Works fine for me :)
Comment by Jelle van der Waa (jelly) - Wednesday, 18 May 2011, 08:59 GMT
Did anyone report the bug upstream?
Comment by Liao Haohui (liaohaohui) - Thursday, 19 May 2011, 15:51 GMT
@Antonio Muñoz:

Thanks for your suggestion! I installed the patch you suggested, now I can run djview and xpdf file without crashing after 2 minutes. Previously, after a few seconds, it will simply crashed with the package from Arch testing.

Try running Xorg Server + FVWM + xcompmgr, have been using djview, xpdf for a few times, so the patch seems to work for i915 as well.

A big thanks to you.

@jelle van der waa:

I searched ``xf86 intel video core dump'' on https://bugs.freedesktop.org/. Nothing is found, so may be this bug is not send to upstream. I am not too sure which category should I filed the bug. Please advise.
Comment by Antonio Muñoz (tomby) - Thursday, 19 May 2011, 16:20 GMT

You are welcome! I got the patch from the suggested link by @lyman. It references to a freedesktop bug:
