Just noticed today when my xorg logfile grew to 2 gb.
This error : 39.263] (EE) modeset(0): Failed to get GBM bo for flip to new

is repeated hundreds of time. I have filed a bug, but in the meantime
is there away to avoid this, perhaps using the xorg.conf file. I don't
have one at the moment but if somebody has an idea how I can create one
what to put in it and where to put it I'd appreciate it
very much


I haven't had this happen, but think uniq writing to xorg.log.new then mv
xorg.log.new xorg.log might help.  As a test, try wc -l xorg.log
uniq xorg.log
wc -l xorg.log >>logtest.txt
then compare the line counts in xorgtest.txt.  If the second is far
smaller than the first, you might use grep to get a count of that error
message in the modified xorg.log file and see if it comes back as 1.  If
so, then uniq worked.

  That would work...ut I found another way around the problem. Created
an xorg.conf file in /etc/X11 setting the PageFlip option to false.
