Vivante GPU Kernel Crash

Question asked by Matt Tucker on Feb 4, 2019
Latest reply on Feb 5, 2019 by Bio_TICFSL

Problem Description

We are rendering maps (e.g. roads, paths, lakes, buildings, etc.) using OpenVG on a i.MX Sololite.  Occasionally our application locks up at an openVG command accessing the GPU (e.g. vgDrawGlyph) and just hangs and goes into an uninterruptible sleep.  In dmesg we see that the GPU kernel has crashed (see logs below). In our application it is unclear what is causing this. What can be done to debug and solve this issue? Will a newer version of the GPU driver help in this issue? Or is there a problem with our application?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

What we have done so far

We have checked for openvg errors throughout our code with vgGetError() and have not found anything unusual Also we have confirmed that all created vg paths and paints are destroyed correctly. The crash is not always repeatable, but  to produce the crash we typically run a demo that simulates changes of position along a route. This can cause the app to crash fairly repeatably in a few minutes especially if we draw more road names. If we remove the drawing of road names it can take longer for the crash to occur. We have also increased the GPU memory to 64MB but that did not help.
