Occasionally when playing Enemy Territory, I get a freeze. Game locks up, sounds goes itno a loop. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace doesn't work, I've got to switch terminals and kill it from there. When this happens, running top shows et.x86 is using 99.n% of my CPU. Is this an X.org, ET or NVIDIA-releated problem? I just want to know where to look, normally it doens't really worry me too much cause I'm not really a gamer, it just pissed me off last night so I'd like to try and fix it if I could.
Latest NVIDIA according to pacman
Do you have "RenderAccel" set to true in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf?
You could launch ET via the command line. Open up a terminal and type:
and look at the output...
