[SOLVED] 295.40 Drivers and Xorg 1:7.6+12 HIGH cpu usage
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi, hopefully I'm not the only one with this problem.

Running Debian Wheezy with linux kernel 3.2.0.2-amd64 and the 295.40 drivers from debian non-free repository.
Using LXDE as DE and not that much fancy stuff.

But as of yesterday the Xorg process started hogging all cpu when I were switching between windows. So currently I'm using the nouveau drivers just to have a usable system.

Here are some info about my system.

Code:

# uname -a
Linux tchang 3.2.0-2-amd64 #1 SMP Mon Apr 30 05:20:23 UTC 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

# dpkg -l | grep xorg

Was yesterday also the day you installed libcairo2 1.12.x? It seems to expose some wonderful new bugs in the drivers and performance really falls off a cliff. Going back to 1.10.2-7~bpo60+1 from backports seems to fix it for me.
