• Xorg keeps crashing


    So I’ve noticed lately that Xorg will crash out of the blue for no apparent reason.

    This is the only thing dmesg has for the 5 minutes prior to each crash:

    kactivitymanage[2625]: segfault at 7fa3582f1d10 ip 00007fa35853c881 sp 00007ffd59611418 error 4 in libQt5Sql.so.5.5.0[7fa358526000+41000]

    And this is the trace in the appropriate /var/log/Xorg.0.log file:

    [ 1815.211] (EE)
    [ 1815.211] (EE) Backtrace:

    I’m using Plasma5 with SDDM, my system is up to date.

    I’ve been experiencing exactly the same since yesterday. There must be some bug in plasma5 (5.3.2)

    As I’m on holidays atm I don’t really care… if this is unbearable for you, maybe you should change your DE (just for a while) as Plasma5 is still too buggy for everyday use.

    Meanwhile you should report this to the Plasma5 developers (go to https://bugs.kde.org)

    Cheers!

    Seems someone already did.


    EDIT: The more I look, the more it looks like that it’s actually a Xorg fuckup:

    On Arch forums: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=199812 (OP has intel, I have radeon, someone in the thread mentions radeon)

    Here’s the freedesktop bug report mentioned in the Arch forum thread: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=89898


    EDIT 2: Revisiting the logs (dmesg and Xorg.0.log), it seems that Xorg crashed slighly before kactivitymanager starts complaining. This combined with previous edit probably means that changing a DE won’t get rid of this bug.


    Edit 3-7: formatting


    Final edit: Downgraded xorg-server and xorg-server-common to 1.17.2-2. If there’s no random crash in the next 24 hours I’ll consider the issue fixed.

  • Yup, looks like it was Xorg.

    There’s also been a new Xorg patch yesterday evening (1.17.2-4), hopefully it isn’t broken.

  • I have fedora 22 and have the same bug. When I down graded qt5-qtbase, the problem went away.

    dnf downgrade --allowerasing qt5-qtbase
