Description of problem:
Since kernel 184.108.40.206-28.fc8 my system is very slow. I.e. windowmovement seems to lag. And if I start glxgears, it nearly looks like a system freeze, but some presses of Ctrl+c and waiting some minutes kills glxgears and the system works again (but still slow).
At every start of the computer I get the suspicious error
hda-intel: Invalid position buffer, using LPIB read method instead.
from the kernel.
And the message (older kernels)
ata1: softreset failed (device not ready)
ata3: softreset failed (device not ready)
but I don’t know, if this has something to do with the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Restart the system, log in and move windows on the sceen (very slow and hanging/lagging).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start computer
2. move windows around or start glxgears (for extreme slow performance)
System is very slow.
System should be at normal speed.
My temporary solution is to use an older kernel (220.127.116.11-14.fc8).
