menu redraw in xmms extremely slow
Last modified: 2009-05-11 04:50:29 EDT
e.g redrawing the preferences menu takes about three seconds here.
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82Q963/Q965
current rawhide x86_64. (ok,intel driver is one build behind because
on the same hardware F10 redraws in normal speed.
Unable to reproduce on i386. Exactly what kernel and driver builds are you running?
Ok, with xorg-x11-drv-intel-devel-2.6.0-14.fc11.x86_64.rpm
menu redraw is normal speed.
(uptodate rawhide with todays kernel-18.104.22.168-126.fc11.x86_64)
I am suffering from hangs with the intel driver when playing
a movie in mplayer (already bz'ed). The last non-hanging driver
for me is xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.6.0-14.fc11.x86_64 and with that
xmms menu update is slow.
waiting for a fixed intel driver.....
Core text performance (which is almost certainly your xmms performance problem) has been fixed since 2.6.0-14 and accompanying kernel and libdrm updates.
ouch, copy and paste error...
kernel-22.214.171.124-126 + xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.7.0-4 renders
the xmms menu fast but crashes with mplayer/xine and friends.
kernel-126.96.36.199-126 + xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.6.0-14 renders the xmms menu slow.
(i am not sure if i should interpret "has been fixed since 2.6.0-14" as
"2.6.0-14 should already be fine" though)
