Please reply on-list, there is nothing private in your mail. Regarding your problem, if it does not work with 2.6.32-5-686 (both flavours, not just bigmem), it's probably a fault of DRM inside the kernel. What's your video card and what driver are you using? Try disabling desktop effects. It's a kernel bug. -- Modestas Vainius <email@example.com>
