Now I think I'm going crazy!
About 15 min after I made the last post. I left the room, came back afew min later. and saw the screensaver was moving slow. I tried glxinfo and the xserver crashed. I restarted x and then glxinfo sayd "direct rendering: no" again. Xfree log still says directrendering enabled and no errors other than
_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERVTransOpen: transport open failed for inet6/localhost:0
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6
Which it has said since I upgraed x to 4.4
It was working then it wasn't all in the same session.
How can accel. stop in the middle of use?
I did install acouple of pakages (yahoo msgr, and mldonkey) but nothing that had to do with this.
