strange problem with xorg

hi guys, im having some weird problem here with xorg (from testing repo/xorg 1.5rc6), if i use 'accelmethod exa' and 'migrationheuristic greedy' under device section, everything stop to working, i mean... i can get into X but some seconds after it freeze completly (ff/xterm/* stop to working), if i just use 'accelmethod' it work but too slow and some flash videos dont work it all (a workaround was to use 'option noaccel' but them i cant get a good AR playing some movies)

i try to use XAA instead EXA but i didnt see any difference... anyone know how to solve this problem?

pardon my awful english tongue
-t

btw... my video card is a intel 965GM

Re: strange problem with xorg

Section "DRI"
    mode 0666
EndSection

Make a section called dri... so you actually get direct acceleration............

Also with 965 it is EXA accelerated by default. I think it also used greedy by default too.

Anyways, with this line removed:

RgbPath      "/usr/share/X11/rgb"

http://aoi.ruinevil.com/xorg.conf works fine.

My only issue is that they changed the synaptics driver, so I have to figure out how to do tap-click again.

thanks, ruinevil!

just added the new section and everything speed up again smile funny that i never have to use it before with older xorg releases.

there some bugs showing up on bugs.archlinux somehow related with xorg (rc6), anyway, thanks again.

edit: argh... still having the flash problem, well ... better wait for the next update

You can add

Option "TapButton1" "1"

to your touchpad section.
