I have the exact same symptoms (X using 100% CPU, SIGALRM, etc., although my SIGALRMs are intersperced with a lot of gettimeofday() calls, too), except my freezes occur quite frequently when switching apps, dragging windows, etc., in GNOME. They happen less frequently but still happen in KDE, and it doesn't matter if I have Firefox loaded or not. I'm on FC4 with the following Xorg packages: fonts-xorg-base-6.8.2-1 xorg-x11-font-utils-6.8.2-37 xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-devel-6.8.2-37 xorg-x11-libs-6.8.2-37 xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.2-37 fonts-xorg-100dpi-6.8.2-1 xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL-6.8.2-37 xorg-x11-xfs-6.8.2-37 xorg-x11-xdm-6.8.2-37 xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU-6.8.2-37 xorg-x11-6.8.2-37 xorg-x11-tools-6.8.2-37 xorg-x11-devel-6.8.2-37 fonts-xorg-75dpi-6.8.2-1 xorg-x11-xauth-6.8.2-37 xorg-x11-twm-6.8.2-37

I'm using the NVidia drivers, and it looks like the problem disappeared after I set RenderAccel option to false.
Comment 3 Ben Steeves 2005-06-23 12:45:39 UTC
Yup; same here. This can probably be closed & reported to Nvidia.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the version to match. Thank you!
Comment 5 Matěj Cepl 2007-07-18 17:24:26 UTC
Distribution against which this bug was reported is no longer supported; could you please reproduce this with the updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX. Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter. Thanks in advance.
