Hi:

What graphics card are you using? Which drivers? (Have you installed
Nvidia or ATi proprietary stuff?)

May be Nvidia? Same problems with a Dell D800 with Nvidia GForce4. We are usin 4k kernel stack, but when any 3D Hardware accel is used ( glxgears or
sceensavers, for example ) all X crash.


Well I don't know if this is any help or not, but I have had no problems
whatsoever using FC2, x.org, kernel-2.6.6-1.435.i686 from Fedora Updates
(4K stack), and the nv driver on a Dell Inspiron 8200 with NVidia
GeForce 440 Go. glxgears and xscreensaver all work fine (albeit, very
very slowly).

I believe part of the slowness for X is the IPV6 module that is loaded by default. This has been identified but I do not remember the reference.

IIRC the nv driver works fine but has no 3d support. The nvidia drive OTOH has 3d support but has the bug related to the 4k stack size when using glx or opengl.

Yes, I found what you are talking about. Search for "do it." in title. Here is the excerpt from the message explaining how to get rid of ipv6 module with one correction to reference the file "network" not the just the dir /etc/sysconfig Now when I select text in moz-mail I get minimal delay or pause.

On my system, /etc/sysconfig/network contains:
        $ cat /etc/sysconfig/network
        NETWORKING=yes
        HOSTNAME=amito.localdomain
but lsmod definitely shows that ipv6 *is* loaded.

I got rid of it by adding (as suggested in a later posting) the line:
	alias net-pf-10 off
to:
	/etc/modprobe.conf

I *strongly* recommend that you do this.  It speeds up web surfing by a
lot (probably because Doubleclick doesn't handle ipv6 properly), and
seems to speed up the system in general (though I can't even guess why.)
