I updated my system earlier tonight and have run into a rather serious problem that I could really use some help with. Basically the subject says it all, when I start X my keyboard and mouse all of the sudden become very slow to respond, to the point where the system is basically unusable. It seems that the delay is only with input devices, I don't think the entire computer is being lagged, at least the cpu and memory utilization are very low. I'm not quite sure where to start with this one and would appreciate any advice for troubleshooting.

Thanks in advance.

After booting into Gentoo and playing around a bit more I realized I did not describe the issue quite as well as I could have.

When I move the mouse around the screen, that works perfectly fine, if I click on any of the Gnome menus or widgets on a window, etc. that all seems to behave normally too. But, if I open up a gnome terminal and start typing commands into it that is almost unusably slow, sometimes it takes 5 or 10 seconds for the text to appear. In firefox, I can click the close box on a window to close it and that works perfectly normally, so does dragging the window around on the screen, but if I click on a bookmark in my bookmark bar, or any link on a page, it takes 5 or 10 seconds to respond.

It is really weird.

The culprit seemed to be the latest nvidia drivers, masking them brought things back to normal.

Could you please share your nvidia card model and clarify if it was 325.08 or 319.32 that broke your system?

I'm at work and not at home right now but I know the video card is an nVidia GTX 660 Ti based card and I think the version of the drivers I masked was 325.08 if I remember correctly. I thought that my problem may have been caused by my Kernel version so I tried updating to the latest and when I did that I found that neither nVidia driver version would install for some reason, so for now I am just sitting where I'm at as things seem to be working perfectly.
