Bug Description

Binary package hint: xorg

In kernel .35 onwards the system freezes at random.
This is mostly while scrolling scrolling pages while they load in Firefox(most common) or while scrolling in Nautilus/Gedit windows while they load.

Once it freezes I'm not able to do anything, only the mouse pointer alone moves but nothing else is responds.

This regression starts in Linux Aspire-5670 2.6.35-1-generic #1-Ubuntu SMP Sat Jun 5 06:18:25 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

While, I dont have any problems with Linux Aspire-5670 2.6.34-5-generic #14-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jun 4 06:18:40 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux or Linux Aspire-5670 2.6.34-02063407-generic #201009140905 SMP Tue Sep 14 10:10:14 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux, both work fine.

Problem is also present in Kernel 2.6.36-020636 , Kernel 2.6.37-12.26 , Kernel 2.6.37-020637rc8 , Kernel 2.6.38-1

I'm not able to test with kernel .39 because I'm having network issues with that.

Vish, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in the development release from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Please do not test the daily folder, but the one all the way at the bottom. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:
kernel-fixed-upstream
kernel-fixed-upstream-VERSION-NUMBER

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:
kernel-fixed-upstream-v3.11-rc5

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:
needs-upstream-testing

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:
kernel-bug-exists-upstream
kernel-bug-exists-upstream-VERSION-NUMBER

As well, please remove the tag:
needs-upstream-testing

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your understanding.
