Description Robin Green 2009-06-16 07:08:34 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start supertuxkart
2. Choose quick race
3. Choose maths classroom
Actual results:
Runs at about 0.5 frames per second

Expected results:
Should run fast enough to play

Additional information:
On the konsole, it keeps printing errors about the sound not playing.

Wow.  It sure is.  Testing. . .
Comment 2 Gwyn Ciesla 2009-06-16 15:42:14 EDT
Let's see.  0.6.1a is out, but doesn't help.  Trying it and 0.6.1 on F-10. . .stay tuned. . .
Comment 3 Gwyn Ciesla 2009-06-17 14:51:46 EDT
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.
Comment 4 Gwyn Ciesla 2009-06-19 08:43:57 EDT
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. . .
Comment 5 Gwyn Ciesla 2009-07-01 08:47:11 EDT
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.
Comment 7 Gwyn Ciesla 2009-07-02 14:21:07 EDT
Latest mesa update fixes this for me.  Can you confirm?
