This is very likely a bug in blackmagic code. The 4.8 kernel introduced CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY, which adds protections to the copying of data to/from userspace. The blackmagic kernel module is out-of-tree and is probably doing something wrong, which the protections are catching.

I am not at all interested in fixing their kernel code, though this is possible if somebody has the gumption. You will have to wait until BM releases new modules, or downgrade, or perhaps try recompiling your kernel with CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY unset.

Yea, that seems like a silly solution downgrade; im using a gtx1080 and im not sure if that solution will support my video card.. ill have to check..

incidentally is this your forum post?

Yes, 4.4.36-1

Why do i have the sneaky suspicion they (blackmagic) dont really care and are just wanting you (the consumer) to buy their 4k card or something newer....

Using the LTS kernel means reverting from 4.8 to 4.4?

edit; guess its happening with the 4k cards as well..

I think that reverting to an LTS kernel is probably your best bet.

I am in contact with them, but i don't get much feedback :(

All i know is that they reproduced the issue, which is a start.

checking in as well; module pukes (crashes) when loaded.

any idea when this will be addressed as i use this app to do some video work.

Tried, pushed, still crashing.

They released 10.8.3 and 10.8.4, had any luck with those?
