Xorg Segmentation Fault for Kernels 4.x



I'm out of ideas how to fix the problem, please my logs, I hope somebody can decode what could possibly be the underlying problem. 


I'm not sure if I missed any kernel config, tried rebuilding glibc because a line tells me it segfaults there. Rebuilt xf86-video-intel and nvidia-drivers - still no luck. Re-emerge x11-drivers/* that I use, xorg-server, etc... still no luck. 

Tried gentoo-sources too, still no luck. Hope someone can help. 

I am stuck with 3.19 (debian-sources), however, I can't make my hdmi and displayports to work. xrandr -q does not report anything related to HDMI and DPs. 

Thanks in advance. 


My Machine: 

Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller 
NVIDIA Corporation GM204M [GeForce GTX 970M] 
Intel® Core i7-4710MQ CPU @ 2.50GHz

Add this line in /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords

=x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel-2.99.917-r2 ~amd64



emerge x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel


Who are affected:

  • those using amd64 arch (stable)

  • using 4.x kernel (observed in gentoo-sources and tuxonice-sources)

  • using xf86-video-intel-2.99.917 (r2 fixes the issue)

Hey jorgicio,


Thanks man! That's the option I haven't tried yet, will try it later. I've also uncovered two most likely related bugs:





As pointed out by cool dudes at Gentoo: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-7795772


I'll post my findings later (if time permits)
