#13555 infoneeded Bug Report - General

X Windows locks is monitor switched off whilst displaying mytfrontend

Reported by: bib1963 Owned by: Mark Kendall
Priority: minor Milestone: 32.0
Component: MythTV - User Interface Library Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I have a DP monitor fed by Mesa DRI Intel(R) Haswell.

If I have a current virtual desktop showing FE and switch the monitor off for a few moments, once I switch it back on, FE always gets shown in X no matter what I do. Whether I issue a kill or xkill does not matter, the display freezes.

I cannot change to any other running app, nor start a new one and have it displayed.

And it still shows after checking that FE is not running.

All I can do is kill the X session from a vty and restart.

This has been happening for quite a while.

If I remember correctly, this started a few years ago, then I move from DVI to DP.

Can you generate some logs from mythfrontend when this happens? you may need to capture stderr as well - as any Qt rendering errors will be sent there.

Note:: I can't test anything Display Port related
