Hi lite icon's and be able to move them.
can you paste the output of "emerge info" and which xfree you're using? and anything else ethat you think might help us?
Portage 2.0.47-r10 (default-x86-1.4, gcc-3.2.2, glibc-2.3.1-r4)

Hope this helps.
In make.conf my USE flags are:

so it froze solid as in the mouse stopped responding etc? are you using a nvidia card with nvidia closed-source kernel drivers? if so, have you tried using the xfree nvidia drivers instead?
are there any other instances where it locks up apart from highlighting icons on a desktop? because if it froze all together it might be either an X problem or a kernel problem (or both)
Hello, i found a new thing too it, i was playing XMMS and the sound continues too play (No looping at all) But i think it could be X, im using the gaming sources. But it hasn't locked up from any other thing as of yet. And i am using portage nvidia sources, not nvidia's site sources.
nvidia isn't all source ;) as liquidx said, stop using the nvidia drivers for a while and use the standard X 'nv' driver (edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config , don't forget to disable GLX too). See if that solves your problem, hard lockups are not unheard of with the nvidia drivers (especially with AGP enabled).
Ahh ok i will try this :).
does this solve your problems ?
waiting for reporters confirmation
