Re: The system freezes when switching session

Hello everbody:

I use Fedora 10 i386 in a Compaq Presario Notebook C735EM.
The system is updated, and my desktop is gnome with compiz fusion enabled. The graphics card is intel. The problem I have is that when I change the current user session to another user, the system freezes, crashes. All I can do is move the mouse. I can not close the X. I can not move to terminal Cntr + Alt + F1
I tried to do before turning off compiz fusion, but also freezes.
In a virtual machine that I can not, so I guess it is problem of my laptop.
Can someone help me?
I am not sure that there is a current bugzilla on this one (I haven't had time to look into it), but I have this issue as well. I'm working around it by using the following /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

---8<---- Cut Here ---

Section "ServerLayout"
   Identifier     "Default Layout"
   Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
   InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

       Depth     24

The key thing is the  following line in the Device section:

Option         "NoAccel" "True"

This disables the hardware acceleration on the video card. Not great, but it stops the hangs.


I think there's a bugzilla for this. I saw a post about it here and looked at a bugzilla about a week or so ago that sounds like this. I think someone had suggested the "NoAccel" workaround in that report. I didn't keep the link though, sorry.

I think the post about this issue was probably no more than two or three weeks ago, so check the archives because I think that post has a link to the bugzilla.
