If I browse to using Konqueror under KDE on Fedora 11, X will, after a delay, lock up. The mouse will move, but no keyboard input is recognized, and the screen does not react to the mouse passing over objects on screen. I am able to ssh into the machine and issue shutdown -r now and have that work.

The machine is a Dell XPS M1330 with Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c), and Fedora 11 is fully updated.

Visiting the same site in Firefox does not cause a lockup.

I am booting with nomodeset since it won't boot into X otherwise. I tried the other two accel options: EXA (still locks up) and XAA (X won't start).

Any suggestions on how I can debug this?

Is it just that site? – random Jan 15 '10 at 5:13
No, but that site will trigger the problem reliably. – retracile Jan 15 '10 at 19:04

This is a common problem with Konqueror across multiple versions of multiple distributions. I don't know of any specific fix, nor do I know if it's been corrected in F12. I would suggest grabbing a F12 KDE Live CD and testing that.
