Default X & radeon & flash & youtube problem

Hi all,

I recently caved and installed flashplugin-nonfree on my squeeze system
(once the 64-bit player was re-released).

However, when I watch some (not all) youtube videos, the screens (2)
first go black, then (possibly triggered by switching to a text
console), get corrupted and start flashing. I see this kind of thing in
syslog:

.. so I think the flashing is probably when it resets the GPU.

The problem persists on all VCs, and what is on the screen is in the
wrong place - usually I have to reboot without being able to see what
I'm doing, since the command line is off the bottom of the screen.

This (because everybody loves cats) is an example video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KswnjMa-MQ

I have a:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV730XT [Radeon HD 4670]
with the open source radeon driver.

I'm running 64-bit on an:
model name : AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 965 Processor

I've seen a few things with similar log messages from searching, but
none very recent, and none quite the same.

That card, by the way, is the reason I'm running squeeze; it didn't seem
to place nicely with lenny (worked ok when I tried lucid, but that's not
really my thing - and I didn't try flash).

Any ideas?

I feel I should file a bug somewhere, but I'm not sure where's
appropriate, especially when running proprietary software - though no
software should be able to screw up my system that badly.

Richard

Could it be this? :-?

I don't think so. My problem happens as soon as I open that youtube
video - well, actually I think when it starts to play video, which is
maybe half a second after I click the link. And that's immediately after
rebooting the machine; there's no time for a memory leak to accumulate.

Oh - one other thing. One of the links I tried played an advertisement
first. The advertisement played flawlessly, then the problem happened
when the proper video started. I suspect it's related to what codec is
used, or something like that.

Thanks,
Richard

No? :-)

You better check your logs and compare them with these reports:

[RV730] GPU soft reset infinite loop scrolling in firefox with compiz
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg-server/+bug/565981

[RV515] Playing flash video causes memory hogging
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-ati/+bug/563400

You can also try with the closed driver to see if you can still reproduce
the error. If not, you can then fill a bug report for "xserver-xorg-video-
radeon" package.

No comment; over my head.

Plausible.

Just to say, that plays fine non-maximized on my HP Pavilion, AMD-64
Turion II (?). It's only using %50 cpu according to gkrellm. That's
fairly gentle from what I've encountered.

Just curious, but what does sensors (as root) say? Methinks AMD
kernel/driver support is behind other cpu/gpu support. Just a hunch.

What proprietary software? I thought you were trying to install squeeze?

Um, no, just do more research next time. Boot it up with lots of live
CDs and see what works and why it works. Persistence pays.
