Description Alex 2012-12-05 04:32:02 UTC
Screen freezes approximately to 3 seconds when i open any pdf document with Okular. Process X begin to consume too many cpu time after that.

x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel-2.20.13 does not cause this error.

Reproducible: Always

Here is part of dmesg

Comment 2 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2012-12-05 14:30:46 UTC
Please also open a bug report upstream at and provide the link here.
Comment 3 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2015-02-23 01:08:20 UTC
I think it's very likely this is fixed in a new version of the driver. If it's
not, please file a bug upstream at We're not prepared to
fix driver issues that aren't fixed upstream.
