Kernel 6.9, frequent hangs with i915

[ 4184.012222] i915 0000:00:02.0: [drm] GPU HANG: ecode 8:0:00000000
[ 4184.013231] i915 0000:00:02.0: [drm] Resetting rcs0 for stopped heartbeat on rcs0

System hangs for up to 10 seconds and this message is displayed in dmesg. Happens quite a lot as well.

I’ve tried the suggestions here Intel graphics - ArchWiki

Google search reveals that I am not the only one with this problem, but no one has a fix.


Well … you do have the option of (installing and) using another kernel. Like 6.6 LTS.

The i915 is an umbrella. You will have to supply more information. The output from
