• Kernel 4.13 makes me panic ;)


    So - whenever I update to Kernel 4.13 my system crashes with kernel panic. Here are the last journalctl-outputs. I absolutely have no idea, why antergos suddenly hates me :) http://dev.trancefish.de/errors.tar.gz

  • Switched to LTS by:

    sudo pacman -S linux-lts
    sudo pacman -R linux
    sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    reboot

    This does not solve the problem for now but at least I can work again

  • @trancefish
    Might have something to do with these non-LTS kernels being less tested and slightly experimental (in my book). That’s why I always use LTS kernels if possible.

  • @trancefish and the logs looking clean…
    But 4.13 is not the best kernel from the last ones… hopefully we will get a new one soon!

  • @joekamprad LTS is for me currently the best solution :) Funny coincedence: Neither debian nor ubuntu wanted to be installed on that machine, so I stay with antergos :)

  • 4.13 is the worst kernel I’ve ever used, 4.14-rc3 in AUR is a good choice now.

  • @s9209122222 yes right… lets blame on this very bad 13 kernel!

  • @joekamprad at least it’s the first kernel my system doesn’t like :) And when searching this board, I am not alone. Flickering GFX and other weird stuff. Anyway. Case closed. LTS for me, works. Yippieeh

  • @trancefish Same here. Switched to LTS. My system had been freezing after about 5 minutes.

  • There are a few similar threads on the arch linux forum, e.g. arch linux forum post#1. You might try to set intel_iommu=off as proposed in the bug report. Please let me know if that does not solve the problem, as I face a similar one right now.

    @joekamprad If that’s true we should blame Intel… ;)

  • For a long time I get used to have the absolutely clean boot ups, without any errors or warnings. Only two messages are displayed:

    • systemd reporting its current version
    • fsck reporting the clean filesystem

    With kernel 4.13, all of a sudden and without any changes in the system, I started to get three “intel underrun” error messages on boot ups:

    $ journalctl -xb | grep underrun
    Oct 09 09:14:01 alexasm.net kernel: [drm:intel_cpu_fifo_underrun_irq_handler [i915]] *ERROR* CPU pipe A FIFO underrun
    Oct 09 09:14:01 alexasm.net kernel: [drm:intel_set_pch_fifo_underrun_reporting [i915]] *ERROR* uncleared pch fifo underrun on pch transcoder A
    Oct 09 09:14:01 alexasm.net kernel: [drm:intel_pch_fifo_underrun_irq_handler [i915]] *ERROR* PCH transcoder A FIFO underrun
    $
    

    Apparently, it doesn’t cause any graphical problems or performance degradation. For the first time these errors were discussed in Internet during 2014-2015. It was said they are only debug messages, and shouldn’t affect the system in any way.

    Nevertheless, it was unpleasant to see them. I wanted to get clean boot ups back again. Adding the intel_iommu=off boot parameter solved the issue. Three fake errors disappeared.

    Hopefully, kernel 4.14 won’t have this issue, and it’ll be possible to remove intel_iommu=off parameter.

  • @rfor I don’t want to get away from LTS at this point. This fix might probably help. It seems logical to do so. H had the same CPU pipe A FIFO underrun-fake errors @just was writing about. For now, my system runs quite good, although I had to switch from lightdm to gdm (but this seems to be coming from another bug ;) )
