Hi, I'm using an up to date Gentoo Linux amd64 testing, and sometimes Xorg freezes (and mouse gets very slow). I'm using:
- mesa-7.7.1_rc1 (I've masked 7.8)
- KDE 4.4.1
- libdrm 2.4.19
In the log I attach the emerge --info

Please also attach your Xorg.0.log

I think I've found the problem. This happens everytime I start JDownloader (I don't know how I didn't realize before), so when launching it, I've added this to the args: "-Dsun.java2d.opengl=true" and everything works fine. Thanks and sorry.
Sorry again, the same problem happens (sometimes) when I login, so this is not only Java related.
Could you attach the full output of dmesg when the freeze happens? (assuming you can still log in via ssh from another nearby box.)
I also get random K freezes on my ~amd64 system since about one week ago where a bunch of X updates arrived (xorg-server, mesa, xf86-video-intel,...).
Unfortunately, when I get such a freeze, the system seems to be really dead. I get a blank screen with a "_" cursor in the top left corner. The I cannot switch to a console using Ctrl-Alt-Fx, nor can I ssh into the system anymore. Even Magic SysRQ key don't work!
I usually get those freezes when the screensaver (the ASCII art aquarium from kscreensaver) is running or when I activate the screen after the notebook lid was closed.
I also attach my Xorg.0.log.old which was written when the last freeze occured, although there's nothing really suspicious in it...
