    OK - reverting Xorg.conf fixed it up.

    WTF?

    Strangely enough, I don't seem to be able to boot from either 2.6.30rc2 or 2.6.30rc3:

    Code:
    Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format
    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.

    I opted to keep the file and now I don't have any options to even boot into 9.04 from grub boot loader. It just shows the 8.10 kernels and nothing else. Then all I get is black screen.

    Anyone know how to fix that or should I just try and revert it all?

    P.S. the machine is a Dell Optiplex sx260.
    A couple of things. When you installed the RCx kernel and were asked to keep the current grub loader or replace it with the new one. What did you do? You must have keep the current. So that means you need to edit menu.lst and add the new kernel to it.

    I interested that you have a Dell Optiplex SX260. I have a GX270. What Intel chip set do you have:
    Code:
    $ lspci -nn|grep VGA
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2572] (rev 02)
    If it is a 82865G, then stop here and use the RollBack method. none of the others I found work.

    you were right .... I had to create your script however it helped a little not so much I wished for .... why?

    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 2.6.29.1+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)

    Thanks for the information!
    you're welcome lad/mate

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    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).
    Thanks psyke83

    Code:
    Before:
    reg00: base=0x000000000 (    0MB), size= 1024MB, count=1: write-back
    reg01: base=0x03f700000 ( 1015MB), size=    1MB, count=1: uncachable
    reg02: base=0x03f800000 ( 1016MB), size=    8MB, count=1: uncachable
    
    After:
    reg00: base=0x000000000 (    0MB), size= 1024MB, count=1: write-back
    reg01: base=0x03f700000 ( 1015MB), size=    1MB, count=1: uncachable
    reg02: base=0x03f800000 ( 1016MB), size=    8MB, count=1: uncachable
    reg03: base=0x0e0000000 ( 3584MB), size=  256MB, count=1: write-combining

    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.

    So, you did not ever divert from the official Jaunty repos and not get other packages like intel driver, drm stuff, etc mentioned in this guide? Or, just the kernel?

Note first I thought it was X hanging in the case of the games, but if I launch the game from a terminal, then I can kill/close the terminal to close the app (note I can't terminate the app directly)

    Video does seem to play slowly in Totem... but fine in VLC and Flash (although Flash seems to intermitedly stick and needs a boot, by moving the slider on the movie timeline, to unstick it).

    Anyway... at least for the hanging games, at least I have a way to play them without having to reboot and more importantly a way to reproduce this problem without needing to reboot as I look for a solution.

    [OK I've had a couple hangs launching ppracer... weird how it worked well for a while and now just doesn't with no change that I know if]

    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]

    Could you be so kind and post your "Section "Device"" in xorg.conf to make it more clear?
    Thanks a lot

    Yes that's right, everything is from Jaunty repos. I've just changed the xorg.conf, mtrr, /usr/bin/compiz and unchecked "unredirect fullscreen windows" in general settings of compiz. My laptop uptime is now 17:34 hours without problems. Glxgears test gives me 832.285 FPS and flash is playing smoothly, before it was some 500 FPS and choppy flash.
