OK - reverting Xorg.conf fixed it up.

Strangely enough, I don't seem to be able to boot from either 2.6.30rc2 or 2.6.30rc3:
Worth noting is that my /boot partition is ext4, I'm not really sure why 2.6.30 would have a problem with that when 2.6.28 doesn't, but who knows.Code:Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format
I interested that you have a Dell Optiplex SX260. I have a GX270. What Intel chip set do you have:
If it is a 82865G, then stop here and use the RollBack method. none of the others I found work.Code:$ lspci -nn|grep VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2572] (rev 02)
boot_info_script | AMD64 Athlon X2 Dual-Core - nVidia Geforce 6150 SE - 4GB DDR3
I'm still stuck with 2.6.28-11 (default kernel) and it won't be helpful at all; I tried Mandriva One 2009.1 Spring yesterday, using Gnome LiveCD - kernel 188.8.131.52+mesa7.3 o_O - well, MTRR was already caught out-of-the-box and N O choppy flash playback under FF (shipped with 3.0.8) ! Compiz ran smooth but not as fast as on Fedora 11 Preview (mesa 7.5-devel)
you're welcome lad/mateThanks for the information!
I think it's MORE worth than a mere try
Extract from rc4's changelog:
(Intel/DRM related only)
I didn't want to change the kernel so I've tried mtrr fix with jaunty kernel and it works great on my VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c). I've also included EXAOptimizeMigration and MigrationHeuristic lines in xorg.conf and commented out GM965 in compiz blacklist in /usr/bin/compiz (#T="$T 8086:2a02 " # Intel GM965).

Here's a version of fixmtrr.sh which (I hope!) automates the process of passing the right base address and memory size to /proc/mtrr.
SOLVED !!! And the Intel drivers were not the issue but rather Pulse Audio (or some related pieces). Backed up and removed my .pulse and .pulse-cookies folders and now everything is fine.
[btw - I have not rolled back to the default Jaunty drivers yet so not sure if I will get different / non-pulseaudio / issues there]
[of course going to push things a bit now by running phoronix test suite]
