    Strange! I guess I should recompile the kernel and test again. :(
    I also experienced a high load under Lenny, but IIRC this showed up under
    an older kernel (2.6.18), too (after X server is started, standard
    installation, no additional packages).

    The X server only dies on my machine, if DRM is on. I read somewhere that
    the lastest DRM patches need a newer Xorg version (~7.3). Could that be
    the problem with kernel 2.6.25-rc8?


    Psssst! Schon vom neuen GMX MultiMessenger gehört?
