    Now also vdpau (for example in mplayer) instantly locks down GPU to the point where only hard reset helps, while xv also brings gpu locks, but after some time.
    Yikes; updated my graphics stuff about an hour ago, and now I'm seeing a great deal of instability. GPU hung and didn't return the first time, but was able to do REISUB to reboot. Happened again a second time a bit later, and had to hard power it down.

    This is on a 7850 also; only thing really being done graphics-wise was Chrome (beta; no overridden software rendering). Starting to finally see why it isn't a great idea to use bleeding-edge stuff on production machines

    • Same on my 7870 (pitcairn)
      Flashplayer will cause instand freeze, one time raisub didnt even work.

      Hat that problem a few days ago, then after I got latest versions it worked again and now with the last 2 times I upgraded it is broken.

        Just updated and I'm having the same issues with my 7770

        • Just tested Linux 3.16.1 (Ubuntu mainline) and 3.13.0-24 (Ubuntu 14.04) and both have the issues. Instantly freezes when attempting to watch a Youtube video through Firefox or when trying to watch a video through mpv using --vo=vdpau and I have to hard reset. Seems like everyone on that bug tracker wants it to be a kernel issue when it apparently is not >.>

          Double post 'cause 5 minute edit limit.

          • Both issues appear to be fixed upstream Bug 82517 (commit 6fb42ee), Bug 82428 (commit 83012b5). Bug duplicates are fun.
            Time to wait for the next successful Oibaf build.

            Triple post 'cause 5 minute edit again. At least this is my last one since it's been fixed upstream

              Can confirm that I can playback video with VDPAU without locking up

                • Cannot find libd3dadapter9.so. Is gallium-nine packaged in an other way?

                    I disabled building nine since it bitrots with current mesa master. If/when nine will be updated I can re-add it again.

                    EDIT: I suspect nine will not have a great future until it will be included in mesa, it often conflicts, especially the prerequisite patches to the state tracker. Glx_mesa_query_renderer extension may improve this.

                    • Vdpau working again, awesome However GPU hangs when using lots of 2D stuff (especially flash and other browser components) still happen. Hopefully it will get fixed soon.
