So the desktop cube runs absolutely stable with 2.6.38 when I disable page
flipping. The hang just happens with enabled page flipping. But beside the
desktop cube I had no other hang with page flipping enabled.
If its not related to exact gfx chip, it should be easily reproducable:
- install kwin
- kwin --replace your current window manager
- make sure composoting is enabled if it isn't
- Ctrl-Alt-F11, maybe hang happens on the second time, not on the first,
but hang should happen quite reproducably
My compositing settings are:
martin at shambhala:~> grep -A 13 "\[Compositing\]" ~/.kde/share/config/kwinrc
(I disabled checks whether compositing is performant or safe enough
sometime ago, as KWin did not enable compositing otherwise, maybe due to
performance reasons. But from what I know OpenGL compositing should be
pretty safe on my chipset.)
