xemacs performance unacceptable
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:24 EST
Description of problem:
With most recent rawhide updates, performance of editing using xemacs is
unacceptably slow, because with each character insert, X keeps flashing the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
It's not at all unacceptable here on Rawhide x86_64, but then again I'm using a
local build of 21.4.19 at the moment. 21.4.19 will be pushed to FE5 as soon as
Canna and FreeWnn have been rebuilt (and afterwards it'll be pushed to FE4 too).
If you want, you can build it locally from FE5 CVS to try it out.
By the way, do you get this warning when starting up XEmacs (and somewhat bad
non-ASCII characters, seemingly from another font than the rest/usual Courier)?
Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
I uploaded my local copies of the upcoming 21.4.19-2 packages to
http://cachalot.mine.nu/5/RPMS/ in case you want to give them a try.
21.4.19 pushed, please check if the problem persists.
Closing due to lack of feedback.
