Yup, it's that chipset again.Awfully grumpy for an Intel chipset!
Unlike other people; I can actually use the PC fine until I start Icedove while using Iceweasel or starting Synaptic; this causes the GPU to hang.I can move the cursor; and apps still respond; (I closed Icedove, and an htop session via SSH confirms it) just that the screen doesn't repaint except for the cursor and I can switch to a VT fine. When switching back, I get a kernel error saying that the GPU hung, and switches to a black screen with the X cursor on it.
I've heard it may be an out of RAM problem, because the thing has only 256 MB RAM. Could this help? (I SSH'd and there still is quite a bit of leg room)
Debian squeeze, 2.6.32, 400 MB Swap, and a Pentium 4 Celeron.
