• GTT full, but LRU list empty

    From Khelair@VERT to All on Mon Nov 26 22:31:51 2012
    I've noticed since my upgrade to OpenBSD5.0 that [at least on this, like the 2nd boot, but the longest uptime I've had since I upgraded] I'm getting huge amounts of this message in the syslog; also when I try to check my dmesg it is completely full of:
    error: [drm:pid11275:i915_gem_object_bind_to_gtt] *ERROR* GTT full, but LRU list empty

    Judging from what I've found on the web, it seems that this has got something to do with my X server and/or configuration thereof. 'Course the only documentation I could find on this problem was for Linux, not *BSD, but at this point I'll take what I can get. This is the primary resource I've found for it using the websearch that I also used as the subject of this message: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=601225

    Does anybody have any ideas what might be causing this/how to resolve or avoid it in the future? The fellows whose accounts I've read online sofar seem to indicate that once they reboot it's fixed for awhile but then ends up happening again after a time. Any information that could be provided would be very much appreciated at this point.

    Of course there's an answer! Don't run X on your server machine. :)

    If you absolutely *have* to, don't keep it running when you're not using it. *shrug*

    I left it running usually before so that I could easily scan all of my logfiles on one or two virtual desktops. Right now I'm using that suggestion and just keeping it on the text consoles, though. I'd really like to fix something that's messed up in my system, though, call me crazy.

    There's nothing wrong with your system. If you've ever ran Synchronet on Windows, and use other applications in the process, you'd notice you need to reboot about once a week, otherwise things get REAL slow and laggy. Same thing with linux, basically. X applications get in the way of running server based stuff. It will slow things down, if not crash it. They just don't work good together. :|

    Regards,
    Nick
