384.69 Broke KDE Screen Locker, Possibly Other QT Based Software On Linux


That is the bug report I filled with KDE with some backtraces of the segfault.

can confirm this one on Tumbleweed & 384.69

Same issue. KWIN, and other KDE seems really unstable couople last month where kwin crashes left and right with nvidia gpu. Now the Screen locker again fails with latest drivers.

Hi all,
We are tracing this issue under 1981201 . Can you please run nvidia-bug-report.sh script as root/super/sudo user as soon as issue hit and attach generated nvidia bug report log file. Please provide issue reproduction steps. What user of KDE you are running ? Are the all ditros with KDE affected due to this issue?

Can you please provide a stack trace of the problem within GDB, as well as the output of “info proc mappings”?
Specific instructions to reproduce the problem would also be helpful.

nvidia-bug-report is in my post above from the affected driver.
The repro steps are quite simple at least for me.

1: launch system with latest KDE software (I am using Arch Linux with latest updates w/ KDE).
2: login into system and wait for the lock-screen to effect. (could probably lower the time for it to repro it faster, will try to trigger it manually and see if it needs the timeout or not later today).
3: Moving the mouse, to trigger the lock-screen will show a message to instead use systemctl unlock-sessions.

I’m quite blue in this but what do you mean cat /proc/PID/maps ?

sandipt > What user of KDE you are running ? Are the all ditros with KDE affected due to this issue?
I’m using ArchLinux with my default non root user with my system. So far it seems it’s confirmed in Archlinux, openSUSE, and KDE NEON.

Seems related: https://blog.martin-graesslin.com/blog/2017/08/warning-nvidia-driver-384-69-seems-to-be-broken-with-qtquick/

I meant the “info proc mappings” command in GDB, but cat /proc//maps contains similar information.
As you need to produce this along with a backtrace (due to ASLR, the addresses will change across runs), it’s best to do everything in GDB at the same time.
So, please reproduce the problem again, and then in GDB:

  • thread apply bt
  • info proc mappings

Thank you

My bug report on KDE’s bug tracker had some backtraces, but I’ll post them here as well:

here is a raw pastebin since I don’t know how to make attachments: https://pastebin.com/raw/SjzVuDjZ

Also an easier way to reproduce is to launch kscreen in test mode from the desktop. On ubuntu / debian based systems this would be

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libexec/kscreenlocker_greet --testing

There is no libnvidia-glcore.so in the list of mappings. Is it truncated? It should not be.
Similarly, your backtrace only has one frame, which is unexpected.

Hi all, What did you see on display when Broke KDE Screen Locker? Can I get photo of display? which process you are hooking gdb to get trace? Can we get back trace?

I cannot reproduce that with qt-5.7.1 / kde-plasma 5.10.5 / kde-frameworks 5.37.0.
Screenlocker starts and stops without issues:

This is the first time I’m using GDB, so I’ll just post my process for review

# gdb /usr/lib64/libexec/kscreenlocker_greet
(gdb) r --testing
(gdb) thread 5 apply bt
(gdb) info proc mappings

Ok, Just realize that “enter to continue” is for all of the info.

sorry for messing it up the first time

Thank you. We have a local reproduction of the problem and are investigating.
Previous versions of KDE/Plasma appear not to be affected, it looks like a sandboxing mechanism was integrated in latest Plasma and that interacts with changes in the driver.

I’m affected on Kubuntu 17.04 using KDE Backports

Plasma 5.10.5
Frameworks 5.37.0
Qt 5.7.1

Sadly I seem to be hit by a gdb bug (https://sourceware.org/gdb/wiki/FAQ#GDB_reports_.22Cannot_find_user-level_thread_for_LWP_23957:_generic_error.22.2C_how_do_I_fix_this.3F) and don’t know how to proceed to get a backtrace.

If you saw my bug report on KDE, you would see that I got the same issue. You have to run gbd as root for some reason (I don’t know if this is correct, but it worked.)

It’s now fixed upstream with an emergency patch kscreenlocker

We have same problem.
