Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 273741
X server intermittently loses 'blit' ability and window operations become CPU-intensive and slow
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:14 EST
Description of problem:
When the X server starts up, opening up firefox or any other window and dragging
it around rapidly and intsensively with the mouth is smooth and doesn't burn up
lots of CPU.
But I find that after some use, perhaps some situations, that I haven't yet been
able to identify, that the X server becomes much slower and the smooth dragging
of windows is lost, and all graphics operations become CPU intensive such that
you can drive the CPU up to 100% by using any of them.
Once this happens, the only way I know to get out of it is to restart the X server.
The video chipset is ATI Mobility Radeon 9700.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X Server intermittently becomes slow with scrolling operations
X Server stays fast
I will attach xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log

Xorg.0.log file from X server when this problem did happen
The driver I'm using is the radeon driver, and I'm running the latest
188.8.131.52-65.fc7 kernel, but this problem showed on previous f7 kernels too.
Not seeing this in f8
