Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 506245
Supertuxkart unplayably slow
Last modified: 2009-07-22 17:53:03 EDT
Description of problem:
Supertuxkart runs at about 0.5 frames per second on my machine. glxinfo says that direct rendering is enabled, so it shouldn't be using software rendering.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start supertuxkart
2. Choose quick race
3. Choose maths classroom
Runs at about 0.5 frames per second
Should run fast enough to play
On the konsole, it keeps printing errors about the sound not playing.
Wow. It sure is. Testing. . .
Let's see. 0.6.1a is out, but doesn't help. Trying it and 0.6.1 on F-10. . .stay tuned. . .
Haven't been able to test 0.6.1a on F-10 yet, but a rebuild of 0.5 from F-10 for F-11 is *also* unplayably slow.
Ok, here's the sitch:
0.5 on F-10: GOOD
0.6.1(a) on F-11: BAD
0.5 on F-11: BAD
0.6.1(a) on F-10: GOOD (Friggin' awesome actually, my daughter loves it.)
Evidently the problem lies in something on F-11. . . digging. . .
Hmm. . .it's nothing it depends on directly, AFAICT. A diff of the Requires for the packages shows minor differences in rpmlib and glibc. I'm thinking it's a runtime thing. Have you noticed slowness with other apps?

Not really, no. But that's the only 3D game I've tried.
