emacs crashes x windows session

asked 2018-02-27 21:43:48 -0600

With Fedora 27 mate.

I am able to crash my login session by doing simple scrolling operations in emacs. The .xsession-errors make little sense.

               vmware-user: could not open /proc/fs/vmblock/dev

               SELinux Troubleshooter: Applet requires SELinux be enabled to run

I did not install vmware and SELinux is disabled. Can easily reproduce by editing any file that has multiple pages and scrolling via line or page keys. This behavior started after a number of large dnf updates. Tried building emacs from source with same results. gedit work ok.

I'm seeing the same thing with F27 on XFCE. Curious to see if your system has Intel i915 graphics, since journalctl seems to show on my system that things start with a driver hang: [drm] GPU HANG: ecode 9:0:0x85dffffb, in Xorg [1834], reason: Hang on rcs0, action: reset i915 0000:00:02.0: Resetting rcs0 after gpu hang i915 0000:00:02.0: Resetting rcs0 after gpu hang i915 0000:00:02.0: Resetting rcs0 after gpu hang XIO: fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0" after 60106 requests (60106 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

The above BZ is a duplicate of: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.... . The thought is that it's a mesa bug.
