Re: X occasionally freezes


Every once in a while X freezes - no effect from keyboard of
mouse clicks.  The only fix seems to be rebooting.
This is with the Intel 4500 HD, Gnome.  Compiz enabled (though
it has frozen before, without Compiz, IIRC).

A combination of Bug 474624 [1] and Bug 465884 [2] seem to make F10 on Intel graphics based machines pretty unusable. These bugs were harassing me for quite some months now. I also lost some unsaved work...

I am currently using a 2.6.29 kernel from Koji along with the "pci=msi" kernel parameter, and this seems to fix the issue for me, though I am just testing for a few days now.

While typing this, I see that there is a 2.6.29 kernel in updates-testing. I will give it a try later tonight.
