I don't know if it's related.

I have this graphic card:

Code:
# lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82Q963/Q965 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
The only issue I observed is with mplayer using sdl. When changing resolutions
while in full screen mplayer crashes and the screen changes to a weird
resolution. This happens with both kernels 3.2.29 and 3.2.45.

I've tried downlowding the latest mplayer source from mplayer site and
compiling it. The result is the same.

If you have it in 3.2.29 as well that it is not the same issue as we are specifically talking about regressions since the upgrade.

Patrick asked about issues with intel graphics. I have an intel graphic card and that's the only issue I've had. The mplayer issue is not important for me that's why I didn't open a new thread for that.

The sdl package was updated too. That's other reason that made me think it could be related.

Rebuilt kernel today.

Code:
Mon Jun  3 22:10:16 UTC 2013
patches/packages/linux-3.2.45/*:  Rebuilt.
  One more reverted commit.  This one was leading to hangs on systems with
  Intel graphics.  The previous revert was also reverted in 3.2.46, but it
  seems safer to just get this one manually than to take the newer kernel and
  still have to do another patch to it anyway.  Hopefully the third time is
  the charm.  :)

Third time is a charm (for me at least, the packages work just fine). Thanks for doing the update!

Just another confirmation that the second patched kernel package for 3.2.45 also locks up X for me (same driver, dell optiplex machine). Deleting the lines as indicated by Philippe and rebuilding works for me (no problems in the past few hours.)

There's an official third build by Patrick Volkerding available now (see the above post by hitest, quoting the Slackware changelog): this rebuild fixes the i915 issue by reverting the same commit that you already removed manually. However, it is possible that your mirror isn't up-to-date yet (if the build date is 22 May 2013 then it's still the second one).

I rebooted the guest and tried again after uninstalling/reinstalling the guest additions but that didn't help.

Aside from reverting to 3.2.29, found only these 2 workarounds:
-remove the guest additions, X starts working again (issue re-occurs if I reinstall the additions)
-upgrade to 3.8.13, this apparently resolves everything with no issues so far, guest + X + additions working smoothly.

Thank you.
I upgraded to the 3rd kernel build and the problem remains.

Third build works great for me also, but then again I have an Nvidia card so the problems didn't really apply to me anyway. But at least I can say that the new build didn't screw anything new up.
