Periodic screen freezes in Debian Jessie

Periodic screen freezes in Debian Jessie

Postby balleyne » 2015-04-15 00:08

For months I've been experiencing periodic screen freezes in Debian Jessie. I've tried many ways to debug/fix it without any luck... so I'd greatly appreciate any assistance in working through the problem.

The Problem
I'm running GNOME 3 in Debian Jessie...
Code: Select all
$ gnome-shell --version
GNOME Shell 3.12.2
$ cat /etc/issue
Debian GNU/Linux 8 \n \l


On a ThinkPad X60 with a SSD.

Code: Select all
$ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)


My screen freezes periodically.

  • By freeze, I mean that the mouse can still move, but everything else behind it is frozen entirely
  • I can switch to a terminal with CTRL+ALT+F1, it's ... I guess... X or gnome-shell or something that's frozen? Not the whole OS though
  • These freezes last anywhere between 5 or 10 seconds and 3-5 minutes
  • I can't predict when they will occur, but often, after a suspend/resume, they will start occuring much more frequently. Also, they often happen after I enter my password and press ENTER on the lock screen after a resume from suspend. But not exclusively -- they can happen at any other time when I'm doing pretty much anything in GNOME...


Things I've Tried...
  • When frozen, I've tried to CTRL+ALT+F1, login, and run gnome-shell --replace... which doesn't seem to help...
    [*[When frozen, I can successfully CTRL+ALT+F1 and run `service gdm restart`... with the obvious downside of losing everything I have open. But the screen responds immediately and I can log back in to GNOME
  • I tried running `Xorg -configure` to generate an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to edit, but received an error about not being able to generate configuration for multiple screens or something (I can retry and provide the exact error if this is a useful direction to try)

I have no idea what's wrong... is it the gnome-shell freezing? Is it X? Is it a problem with the X driver I'm using?

What other information should I provide on this problem?

Can anyone suggest potential solutions or things I should try or test for?

Thanks very much,
Blaise

Re: Periodic screen freezes in Debian Jessie

Postby Head_on_a_Stick » 2015-04-15 11:55

First of all, update your system -- Jessie is up to version 3.14.2-3 of GNOME-shell.

Secondly, do you keep track of your memory usage?

Is the system swapping excessively during the freeze?

Post the output of:
Code: Select all
df -h

Thanks for the reply!

Thanks. I was keeping my system up-to-date, but there were a bunch of packages held back by unmet dependencies. I'm running aptitude upgrade --full-resolver now and it seems to be fixing that.

I don't... think so. I've been watching that carefully for months. I have a GNOME system monitor thing running on my screen at all times, so I can always see the current state of RAM and swap (even when the screen freezes). I haven't been able to notice a pattern -- sometimes there doesn't seem to be much swapping going on and it still freezes up... so I had ruled that out a while back. But I'll keep a closer eye on it.

I'll try to catch it during a freeze.

Re: Periodic screen freezes in Debian Jessie

Postby balleyne » 2015-05-11 14:12

I've made some progress... to correlation at all with RAM or swap space usage, because I've experienced freezing when RAM usage is low and swap space is zero. Also, I'm pretty sure most of the logs I posted were just noise from CTRL+ALT+F1 switching.

But I found another lead. So far, it seems that when I resume from suspend and Icedove is open, I experience the freezes. But I've started to close Icedove before suspending, and I haven't noticed the same freeze after I enter my password (and press ENTER) on the lock screen. (I'm no longer experiencing periodic freezes throughough general usage... I think that was related to another performance isue I solved.)

I've captured this from /var/log/syslog and I've noticed similar messages during other freezes when trying to unlock the screen after a suspend:

I'm not sure what this means though. I'll continue closing IceDove before suspending and see if the problem ever occurs again.

I have exactly the same issue with a Gnome Shell 3.14.4
and i have the same log messages. these freezes happen when the laptop is trying to suspend.
