First incident was chrome from official repo crashing....
I installed firefox and it worked.
Googling I found a solution for chrome: starting it with --disable-gpu, makes it run ok. So I am using again chrome with this hack.
Second incident: Google-earth (tried many versions) either do not run or crashes the X server; disabling the gpu does not help in this case. I tried the 32-bit version of Porteus 3.1 in the new machine and both chrome and Google earth crash! To the same family of crashes belong also gears and glxgears.
At the Uni I have a 64-bit desktop and there both versions of Porteus 3.1 run Ok! No X crashes.
Third assessment: I built an experimental KDE5 Porteus 3.1.5-32 bits (based on Slackware current) and it works ok in the new laptop and in the Uni-desktop, both 64-bits. I haven't switched to KDE5 waiting for more applications to be ported to plasma 5; running it in mixed mode would make Porteus too big...
I made a debugging start dump of google-earth and got this:

@fanthom: here is my psinfo.txt
Isn't i965 in kernel, or is it in xorg (or in both!)??
Meanwhile I live without Google-Earth. When I need it I switch to KDE5 in BIOS mode (this 3.1 starts ok in either Uefi or Bios)
