Thank you for your reply.
Indeed, in both XFCE and KDE "Composite" was enabled.
So now I've added these lines to xorg.conf:
Option "Composite" "Disable"
to disable the Composite extension, and restarted X11.
See below which extensions I still have enabled.
However, this does not help.
The Mesa/OpenGL rendering of the video freezes the
console in XFCE, but not in KDE.....
Certainly something is very different in video rendering
between XFCE and KDE, but it's very annoying that XFCE
freezes my console (a remote reboot of the system needed!),
whereas KDE does not.....
Here is the list of enabled extensions (from xdpyinfo command):
number of extensions: 32
Is there anything suspicious in this list?
Never miss a thing. Make Yahoo your homepage.
