I came from http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bugs/Common#Miscellaneous_problems_with_Intel_graphics_adapters
Description of problem:
Frequent system crashes/lockups, at least once per day.
Sometimes system is stuck completely (mouse pointer frozen, no response to ping).
Sometimes system still responds to ping/ssh, but any attempts to bring down X and restart fail. Display remains unchanged. Mouse still responsive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 with all updates.
Run system, use X, wait until it crashes.
Steps to Reproduce:
No reliable steps.
As suggested in the common problems document, I tried to add "nomodeset".
That wasn't sufficient, still crashed.
Then I added
Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
This appears to have helped. No more crashes during the last 48 hours.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available), /var/log/dmesg, and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Please note, right now I'm running using the internal LCD display (1400x1050), but when I crashed in the past I had used an external monitor (1600x1200). I guess that doesn't matter.
No changes to xorg.conf has been made since I fixed the crash by adding
Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"

Xorg.0.log.old after the crash
Probably the same bug here. It happens unpredictably, most often using NoMachine NX Client, screen update stops, but mouse cursor still moves. I can ssh and "kill -9 X", system returns to KDM login screen then, but somtimes not, leaving console at text mode.
It seems intel driver is full with bugs.

Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command
yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'
Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .
Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.
If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
[This is a bulk message for all open Fedora Rawhide Xorg-related bugs. I'm adding myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
All logs aboard, so I consider this bug triaged to the developer, however, Kai, could you update your system to the latest build per Comment #12 and let us know the results?

I've updated the system to F-12 long ago, so I can't test F-11 packages.
However, I'm no longer using any AccelMethod Options, and the F-12 has been working fine during the last months, so we could consider this bug fixed.
