    Does that fix it for you on git master?

              As requested (on IRC) I did a further git bisect, this time with the first patch applied, which isolated this commit as introducing the issue.

                X freezes when using EXA

                My X also freezes randomly, Ctrl+Alt+Del, AltGr+Sys+Req not doing nothing. Sometimes the mouse still moves (but slowly) and the rest off the desktop is frozen, sometimes all the desktop gets frozen.All of this happens every time and not long after login.

                I'm using kde 4.2 with desktop effects enabled.
                The problem occurs with radeon and radeonhd when using EXA , I installed both from git today. When using XAA the desktop doesn't freeze.

                ATI Mobility Radeon x1600
                X.Org X Server 1.5.2
                openSUSE 11.1

                  How new is your drm code ? Are you running drm from the openSuSE kernel or did you build and install drm from git as well ?

                    Seems the same lockup I've been having since R500 3D support was merged, back in May. Here's my bug report: http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16198

                      Today I build and installed drm from git and I had the same lockup.

                        I was getting random lockups on Debian with an X800GT using the xserver-xorg-ati-video_6.9.0 driver, back dating the driver to 6.6.3-2 from debian 4.0 completely cured the problem.
                        Have not tried the latest version "If its not broken, don't fix it"

                          I've tried reversing the change to the RADEON_SWITCH_TO_2D and RADEON_SWITCH_TO_3D calls in 6.11.0 and added the scissor register reset code back in. This time Xserver bricked about 1 second after starting. Way to go, me!

                            You might try an updated mesa. Looks like we weren't setting the number of pipes properly in mesa for r3xx-r4xx cards. I've fixed this in mesa master and the 7.4 branch.

                              does this patch help?

                              http://www.botchco.com/alex/xorg/no_...gine_idle.diff

                              It's against the r6xx-r7xx-support branch of the drm, but you should be able to apply it to other drms easily (just two lines to add).

                                Sorry, no. Neither an updated mesa nor the libdrm improvement seemed to help.
