Description paolo muratore-ginanneschi 2009-10-05 15:56:41 UTC
After upgrading to x11-base/xorg-server-1.6.3.901-r2 several applications
started to give errors or significantly slowed down.

1) epiphany, firefox, evolution became very slow, 
   sometimes freezing for some seconds.

2) gnome session: crashes (logs me out) if the webcam is 
   launched by "cheese" or "skype" 

3) xrandr: on boot screen resolution is not anymore properly recognised
   for the login-screen. The behavior for the gnome session is correct
   unless I click on System -> Appearance Preferences menu. In such a case
   all screen fonts are significantly magnified even though the menu does not
   report it. 

I /var/log/messafes and .xsession-errors report some errors but
I could not nail them down to any specific bug. 
Thank for your help.

Reproducible: Always

Please attach Xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log
Comment 3 Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2009-10-05 17:57:18 UTC
Please use a _much_ newer kernel with the kernel Intel driver built-in.

Thanks

I confirm that the problems were kernel related and disappeared after upgrade to
2.6.30-r5.
Thanks to all for the quick help!
