Description of problem:
For somebody used to sawfish moving windows is VERY slow. On an
AMD 2100+ running null/metacity it is way slower than Pentium III/300
running redhat 7.2/sawfish. When window is moved a white shadow is
slowly being changed to background color. Sometimes it even remains
until the pannel is switched.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Seems fine for me and most people. Are you using a remote X connection?
What apps are you moving the window over the top of? Is your X server
accelerated or just using the framebuffer driver?
Something must be wrong with you settings/hardware.
I find metacity to be much better/faster.
There was just a mail on the list where someone had gotten
XaaScreenToScreenCopy (or something like that) option disabled for their G450
in XF86Config - this might cause massive slowness due to lack of accelerated
Thank you, this solved my problem. I had a XaaNoScreenToScreenCopy
set in my XF86Config. As I did not mess with X att all I consider this
a bug in installation. Is email@example.com going to file a bug report or should
I do it.
Thanks, glad it was something simple. We can just move this bug over to X.
The G450 XaaNoScreenToScreenCopy is currently off by default in
