Default Bug#582105: 855GM: hard hang when closing lid

Package: linux-image-2.6.33-2-686
Version: 2.6.33-1~experimental.5

A laptop with 855GM video chipset (Dell Latitude X300) hangs whenever
I close the lid. Using kms. Julien is telling me that this is a known
issue, but I cannot find a relevant bug report.

This is the case with all kernels tried to date (32-3, 32-5, 32-trunk, 33-1),
and appears not to be related to the X server (the crash happens when there
is no X server).

My current work around is "don't do this, then", which is extremely
annoying when you forget about it.

I was thinking of the bug fixed by:

commit 7b9c5abee98c54f85bcc04bd4d7ec8d5094c73f4
Author: Jesse Barnes <jbarnes@virtuousgeek.org>

drm/i915: give up on 8xx lid status

These old machines more often than not lie about their lid state. So
don't use it to detect LVDS presence, but leave the event handler to
deal with lid open/close, when we might need to reset the mode.

Fixes kernel bug #15248

but that's apparently a different issue (that seems to only affect
initial detection). Can you try setting up netconsole to get some more
info? The remaining 855GM issue I know of is
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=27187

Also, again, please use reportbug to file bugsā€¦

Cheers,
Julien

Hi Julien,

what do you think about
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22126 ? It's suspend
related, but maybe useful in other cases, too. I'm not sure if it's
still relevant, now that KMS is disabled on 855 in the Squeeze kernel.
The fix is already merged into upstream linux-2.6.
