Default Re: 190.42 system freezes every few seconds

Hi

i had exactly the same problem with 190.42. The freezes where often triggered by mouseover effects in kde 4 especially in dolphin while using compiz. No problems with kwin as i remember.

My solution was to comment out some entries in xorg.conf

# Option "RenderAccel" "true"
# Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"
# Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
# Option "RandRRotation" "true"
# Option "OnDemandVBlankInterrupts" "true"
# Option "NvAGP" "0"
# Option "DamageEvents" "true"
# Option "UseEvents" "true"
# Option "TripleBuffer" "True"
# Option "BackingStore" "True"
# Option "PixmapCacheSize" "1000000"
# Option "AllowSHMPixmaps" "0"

one of this settings is the "killer"
So the driver is running with default settings now and the freezes are gone. Hope this will help you
