I recently upgraded to 6.2 release (i386) on my desktop workstation, and I'm experiencing occasional lockups that require restarting X to resolve. I can ssh in to the box and kill the process and force a restart, but the desktop is completely unusable - both mouse and keyboard don't function - so I can't restart X with Ctrl-Alt-Bkspc. When I ssh in, performance is normal and top doesn't show any unusual memory or CPU usage. PID974 was the pid for X.


I found these errors in /var/log/messages:
Dec 12 09:36:51 utd59514 kernel: error: [drm:pid974:drm_lock_take] *ERROR* 1 holds heavyweight lock Dec 12 09:36:51 utd59514 kernel: error: [drm:pid974:drm_lock_take] *ERROR* 1 holds heavyweight lock

Although these showed up on the 12th, the desktop just locked up a few minutes ago, so they *may* be unrelated. I tried unloading drm (kldunload drm.ko), but that failed.

When I grep the Xorg log I see these errors:
[EMAIL PROTECTED] grep EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log
       (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER

(EE) RADEON(0): Unable to write to DVO Slave 112.
(EE) RADEON(0): Unable to write to DVO Slave 112.

I don't know if these are related to the problem either. I'm wondering 1) has anybody else experienced this problem and 2) does anyone have any suggestions as to where to start looking for the answer?

As far as I remember you can disable drm in your xorg.conf...
I do not have it there, so I could not look it up...
