I have as issue with my ASUS X80L laptop ( system config: Celeron M 550, 2Gb RAM, Intel Mobile GM965/GL960 video ). I'm running Debian testing on it with X.Org v 1.12.1.902 and XFce 4.8.

Every 10-20 minutes my X-server is freeze for 20-60 seconds w/o any reason ( usually I'm using only IDE and opera browser for web-dev ). During freeze-time I can only move cursor and hear music on background.

Watching my /var/log/Xorg.0.log on a tty1 I see repeated entries (it repeats every time while X is not respond):

I can't solve this issue by using google and forums. What's wrong?

upd. I'm performed test using laptop w/o external display, but I'm still get save freezes and errors. Here is dmesg output http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=xf9B1jgh

Also, every time after that freezes my keyboard setting fall back to default, defined in xorg.conf. My xfce4 setting defines locales chagne by alt+caps, and left-alt as a compose-key. But it turn alt+shift to change locale, with no compose key.

upd 2 After changing my xorg.conf by adding some optioons regarding EDID

Option "UseEDID" "False"
Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"

There are no more error message in dmesg, but sometimes X-server freeze for the time (now for shorter time). And I've got some messages in my Xorg.0.log

[157600.245] (II) AIGLX: Suspending AIGLX clients for VT switch

What messages are you getting by executing following command:

dmesg | tail

after that freeze?

Also make sure that your xorg.conf does exists, if not, create one (e.g. sudo Xorg -configure) or customize it by playing with the following options (in your Device section):

Option "UseEDID" "False"
Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"
Modes "1152X864" "1024X768" "800x600"

If this doesn't help, try to edit your: /etc/default/grub file and change (or add) the following line:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nomodeset"

If above solution doesn't help, then try to upgrade your distro to the latest version:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

restart your machine and check if it's solved.

  • Disabling UseEDID and turning on IgnoreEDID seems work.

  • Unfortunately "IgnoreEDID" doesn't help me to get rid of a freezes.
