X gets very slow (unusable) - Current 18.104.22.168 - nvidia 7600 GS
I've updated today to current, so I
installed the 22.214.171.124 kernel source
build it with the "huge" configuration
and added bootsplash-support.
After everything was completed, I rebooted
into the new kernel. It was working for
a about a half-hour, then the X gets very
slow and the cpu-usage-led was full red.
Mouse movement weren't able anymore, but
I could restart X with Strg+Alt+Backspace.
After that every thing was working again,
for a while of course.
Xorg.log doesn't report anything, no errors
no warnings. I run the closed source nVidia
driver (latest 195.36.24) on my
Can anyone help me, or got anyone a
idea of fixing this?
Thanks in advance,
One thing to try is add:
Thanks for your quick reply. =)
I've added this option now, but I need to
test it a longer time. After the freeze, X
come up again, and KDE is telling me, the
composing is disabled, because the system
react to slow. With disabled KDE composing
I run now for quit a while.
I installed a earlier nvidia driver (195.36.15),
the same behavior on 126.96.36.199. ATM I can't test
the 195.36.24 nvidia driver on 188.8.131.52, because
I deleted the source dir, so he couldn't build it.
Have to test it anyway, tomorrow.
I didn't know, witch process it was, I
can't see it anymore, if it starts to
I'm using the Alien-Build of KDE 4.4.2.
Here are some new facts:
I checked my RAM, with MemTest4.00+, no errors on
the 2GB module (the only module ATM).
I catch a few outputs of KDE's System-Monitor:
process: | cpu usage: | RAM usage:
firefox-bin | inactive on hard disk | 85MB
plasma-desktop | inactive on hard disk | 47MB
X | inactive on hard disk | 641,8MB
This happens on, 184.108.40.206 / 220.127.116.11 with nvidia binary
drivers 195.36.15 / 195.36.24 on a 1.7.6 X.
Without the (Option "UseEvents" "1").
With this option I haven't tested it yet.
I did not have any of these problems with
Xorg 1.7.5, kernel 18.104.22.168 and 195.36.15 nvidia package.
Ok, (Option "UseEvents" "1") did nothing on
this behavior. I found out like rmjohnso says:
binary package or with the nv opensource driver.
But the WM make a difference, I use now for testing
xfce4, with nvidia 195.36.24, and kernel 22.214.171.124,
without any problems, so far.
I have to took a look on the KDE 4.4.2 build or
rebuilt it on the current, or switch back to KDE 4.3.5.
Thanks for all your help.
