Intel GPU dump, dmesg and Xorg.0.log

After starting X on my Apple MacBook, both mouse and keyboard lock up after a few seconds.  Before locking up, the 'login' input box and other characters from kdm sometimes appear corrupted. After locking up, 'Alt+Ctrl+F1' I cannot kill the session using 'Alt+Ctrl+F1'. However, I can still connect to the computer via SSH.

Please find attached the Intel GPU dump, dmesg and Xorg log.

Maybe you can find some more useful info at

This is perhaps a duplicate of bug 23686.

I have the same exact problem, disabling dri improved but did not solve the issue. Downgrading to debian's xorg-video-intel-2:2.7.1-1 solved the problem.

Could you try new kernel with KMS enabled? We've been reported new kernel has fixed the issue on Macbook.
