Description Stewart Adam 2008-07-15 13:11:08 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm not sure how to explain it, but the gtk2 in rawhide is much, much slower
than the one in Fedora 9. Ever since the upgrade to gtk2-2.13.4-2.fc10.x86_64,
every application which uses gtk2 seems to take forever to render and CPU
utilization seems to be much higher.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load up Evolution with lots of messages
2. Load up a directory in Nautilus with >=500 files
3. etc
Actual results:
CPU utilization is high for longer periods of time as widget rendering takes place

Expected results:
It was as fast as in F-9

Additional info:
This was also present in the F9 tests/alphas/betas - I'm sorry if this is the
intentional behaviour (as in the slowness is caused by extra debugging code or
something similar which is enabled for rawhide only).
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2008-09-04 23:15:40 EDT
It looks like gtk2 was build with -O0 for a while. The latest build should be back to regular CFLAGS, let me know if that doesn't help.
