Hey guys I was wondering if anyone was having the same issue I am with my gpu causing my system to hang. I created a bug report https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=540606 but haven't heard much of a response. Does anyone else have this problem?

Recently had some issues with my G965 with mythtv on latest Gentoo kernel and drivers, and i865 (general). The i865G seems to be better on the latest xf86-video-intel (2.99.17) on Flash videos however. I have not checked whether an older kernel fixes the G965.

I have not really pounded on my HD4000 recently nor my i945GM.

A few things:
- Please specify what video program you're using. VLC? Mplayer? Flash?
- I thought the i965 subdriver should be used for the HD3000, but not i915?

I was using mplayer but it doesn't matter which player I use as the issue will happen with ANY video playback.
As I understand i915 handles HD3000 but if you can find documentation that says otherwise I'd be very interested.
