[TRACKING] Freezing Arch Linux AMD

Thanks for the suggestion! I’ve updated the kernel params on my install.
I’m using dracut/systemd-boot, will report back if the freezing occurs.

I’m seeing a few touchpad errors in dmesg as well. Should I create a new thread for those?

Hi @Smig_Tech ,

This thread should suffice, perhaps change “Freezing” to “Issues with”? or something similar.
do post your dmesg errors, thanks. :slight_smile:

EDIT: I’m having trouble locating the edit button for the original post. :man_facepalming:

It can get a bit spammy, but these are the common errors I’m seeing. The touch pad has been a bit inconsistent sometimes laggy. I’ve tried reseating the touchpad cable, unfortunately did not help.

I’ve got the same errors; running arch with plasma though.

These are spamming pretty constantly and I’m also experiencing the freezes while this is going on. I haven’t had to force a reboot though; if I wait for a few minutes it comes back. If I was doing something important at the time I wouldn’t have that luxury though.

I also noticed these i2c errors in dmesg. For me they come in bursts every once in a while, they’re not too frequent, and I also don’t have any freezes (since upgrading to firmware 3.03). I figured they were harmless. With some context to show timing:

I did have a different error filling my dmesg (and annoying me), related to xhci which I know is usb, so I swapped my front left card from usb-a to hdmi, and it went away … sorry I can’t be more specific, maybe I’ll try to trigger it again …

Excellent reports everyone. Appreciate it. We have an internal ticket that is being addressed regarding the i2c errors. We have our own logs as well.

I’ve also been able to see this same log output in dmesg while also experiencing freezing and stuttering behavior (as I imagine existed with BIOS 3.02.) I’m running Debian Testing, Gnome, BIOS 3.03 as delivered with the laptop.

Hm I encounter the same errors on debian stable with backported 6.5.0-3 and latest firmware form kernel.org, with same freezing and stuttering behavior. As soon as the screen is of the machine freezes. Only a hard shutdown helps.

Still experiencing the freezing from the touchpad.

are you by any chance running 4800MTs ram?

Appreciate everyone’s reports on this.

For those just visiting:

Thanks Matt! Are you tracking two separate issues, or just one? I am experiencing the issue and symptoms at the top of this thread, but nothing related to the touchpad or i2c, as far as I can tell.

We have an internal ticket for i2c errors as it affects supported distros.

The DMUB error is tracked here at the link you provided.

Started getting this on tumbleweed, kernel 6.6.6.

No external monitor attached, mostly happens while on YouTube or intellij idea. Hard reset only way out, very disruptive for work.

Tried Fedora 39 on the same kernel version (fedora’s take on it), and also got a freeze but here it was recoverable, system became responsive again after a few seconds.

Didn’t think of copy pasting my dmesg, but I got a bunch of amdgpu errors that resemble those mentioned here, with something about queueing

Are you seeing the issue on 6.6.7 or newer?

Haven’t tried on anything newer.

I’m jumping back and forth between tumbleweed and Fedora, but since they’re both on the same kernel now, I’m back to using TW, since both distros will crash on my eventually.

This morning I got this on fedora, user session totally borked, both screens turned white (but mouse cursor was changing from pointer to text according to where I moved it, so the DE itself was running fine, just with a coat of white paint on top.

I Ctrl Alt F7 into a cli session and journalctl -k showed this

Hope it gets fixed soon, right now I feel like a beta tester although this HW has been announced several months ago.

That’s how Linux is on new hardware, takes time for devs to get some stuff working.

Are you on the latest bios from from framework? v03.03

:frowning:

Yes, I’m on 03.03

Are you noticing any other failures in your journal or dmesg relating to amdgpu?
