I'm having troubles since last week, when I compiled the 126.96.36.199 kernel (I did it following the steps sketcked here
After that I got some problems with Nvidia (could not install it properly), so I followed the post #17 by Slack1_more
in this thread
I finished everything and seemed to be ok; however, my system almost freezes from time to time. The more intensively I use the X server, the faster the system freezes.
Firstly I thought that the system was frozen, but I found out that I could access the computer via ssh; then I saw with "top" that the X server load is around 98-99% (when the system seems to be hung up).
So what happens is: I boot with no error message (logs are clean, as far as I have seen); the system looks nice but when I start using graphics heavyly (applications like firefox, mplayer, k3b, some program running under wine,... ), the system suddenly appears to hang up (everything stops working in kde, but the mouse still can just move). I repeat that accessing the system via ssh shows that everything is still running.
Moreover, I can reproduce the "crash" when I want (unfortunately I cannot avoid it when I want
I recompiled the new kernel (188.8.131.52) but the problem continues exactly the same.
The Nvidia version is 7667.
My system is Slackware 10.1
Any idea, please?
