If you have "direct rendering: yes", edit /var/log/dmesg and search for messages like this:

Many users have reported problems with 2.6.29 and IRQF SHARED/DISABLED; in some cases, this problem affects nVidia cards too.

In my case, after I have switched to 2.6.29, I get the message (at boot):
IRQ 18 SAA7133: IRQF_DISABLED is not guaranteed on shared IRQs
and my DVB-T card does not work!
this isn't really a problem: 180.29 works fine for me and I still get those messages,


you tried booting it up with nopat ?
3.19.2-plus+ w. zram, ZFS, Btrfs; checksums>others

Gentoo all the way
