Re: "screen frozen, but mouse pointer moves" bug
Does anybody have tried to strace the X process when frozen?
I never had this problem (but many locks up, solved by disqbling AGP and having 384MB of ram instead of 512), but with some driver/kernel combination, X process eats all of my CPU and it was very slow. When I straced it, it was spending all its time calling gettimeofday (thousands of calls per sec).
Atm I'm running a 2.4.25 kernel with 1.0-4496 nvidia driver and it works pretty well.
