    Question Update to 9.10: drm:i915_handle_error "*ERROR* EIR stuck: 0x00000010, masking"

    Hello everybody,

    i've updated a 9.04-server system to 9.10. I'm a bit confused about the new kernel. The system is now using a "2.6.31-16-generic-pae" kernel. Before the upgrade (in 9.04) a "2.6.28-16-server" kernel was installed. Isn't there a special server version for the new 2.6.31 kernel?

    Now (with 9.10), the server starts with a frame buffer (which was not the case under 9.04). I read about new intel graphic support that is now enabled by default in the kernel.
    lshw shows:
    Code:
    [...]

    With the enabled frame buffer dmesg shows the following errors:
    Code:
    [...]
    [   10.632440] [drm:i915_handle_error] *ERROR* EIR stuck: 0x00000010, masking
    [   10.632454] render error detected, EIR: 0x00000010
    [   10.646228] [drm] DAC-5: set mode 1280x1024 11
    [   10.695980] Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 160x64
    [...]
    After adding "i915.modeset=0" in /boot/grub/menu.lst the server boots now without the frame buffer and no error messages appears in the dmesg output.

    In result I've two questions:

    • Is there a special server kernel version for 9.10?
    • What are the reasons for the dmesg errors?
