We all had issues with it in older drivers. X would lock, the mouse would move but the pc would be frozen. You could SSH in and kill X, but disabling renderaccell fixed it.

The only thing renderaccel does is use the video hardware to draw X primitives. 3d acceleration will still work fine. You're not going to notice any difference in terms of xorg responsiveness, in fact, if you're running into an issue with renderaccell, it'll speed up probably when you disable it.

You're already using the newest released driver for your GPU.

Did it work? I wouldn't worry about it if it's working. Disabling renderaccell won't affect GL performance

It works. No freezing.

This habit of diverting attention away from company closed-source drivers is bad. You need to suspect your code first. Freezes are happening to everyone, all over the place, as reflected on nvnews and various bugzillas.

I don't know how you restructured the old working drivers, but whatever you did, broke things severely. Those changes are the first place to look. You should be trying harder to test multiple cards and PCs, not throwing up your hands that you have no way to reproduce. You do have many ways, already.

Developer tip: if your current test procs are not producing the user glitches, then you have a blind spot, and need to play around with the test procs.
