    X window + openchrome freeze


    New Xorg does not need xorg.conf, so I have removed it and start Xorg. After start all it's ok but when I start some graphics application (firefox, skype...) it freezes. When I run xterm or rxvt everything is normal.

    My graphics:
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. K8M890CE/K8N890CE [Chrome 9] (rev 01)

    Xorg log:
    h t t p : / / p astebin . com / m694c82c4

    I think it's using openchrome drivers, so I try to use xorg.conf with openchrome as driver defined, but it also freezes.

    Hi and Welcome !

    Generic values for Driver, Refresh Rates and Resolutions do not work fine in a few machines and you have to set supported values in xorg.conf file.

    Post the contents of xorg.conf file here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
