Default Short freeze ups

Hi,

Since upgrading from Fedora 11 to Fedora 12, my screen has been freezing up many times per hour (it never did so under F11). These are usually accompanied by "[mi] EQ overflowing. The server is probably stuck in an infinite loop." messages in the Xlog.

I upgraded to nvidia drivers 190.53 because I saw that it was supposed to fix "occasional short hangs" but I'm here to tell you it does not! It is often triggered by creating or closing a new window.

This makes my system (x86_64, GE Force 9600) nearly unusable. I'm very willing to test out any fixes that are available, or to try any useful advice/workarounds experts here can offer.

This seems to be a somewhat common problem and I am dismayed that it has not been adequately addressed as yet.

Thank you.

Are you using KDE? There's a bug in Fedora 12's X server that causes occasional pauses when doing certain operations in KDE.

I can confirm this, same for me with Fedora 12 64 but the short hangs are very rare and far between, i mostly notice them in some but not all wine Games. gnome 2.28, xorg 1.7.1, 190 + 195 Drivers on a gtx275. However there are no problems for a normal use here.

I can confirm this also.
I'm under Archlinux 64bit KDE4 with geforce 8600m gs.
I have this problem when I plug my 23,6' medion lcd.
I have less freeze if I disable kwin effects. I also noticed I have less freeze since 195.30 with xorg1.7.3.902

What is it possible to do ?


thanks
