gnome2 complete lockups due to bug in X driver
I tried gnome2 on my box, only to experience complete lockups with nautilus2 (especially on image operations it seems, but I'm not sure of that). After some discussions it seems other people are experiencing those lockups, and they are related to X driver bugs.
The only fix I could find is to include Option "XaaNoScreenToScreenCopy" to the screen section in XF86Config-4. This fixes the lockups, at the price of a completely unusable desktop due to the time it takes to redraw any window that I move.
I'm using the 2960 drivers.
Has anyone experienced it and found a more usable solution to this ? Is nvidia working on a fix to those problems ?
