Loading a presentation which I've used / given before on my Core 2 duo laptop (yeah the machine is getting a bit old) which I've recently updated to Fedora 17 (and is fully up2date as of today). I notice that loading the presentation takes a significant time, I can actually see some parts of the slides being drawn bit by bit (images first show up as a broken image like icon, then later get loaded).
The images in question are the Fedora logo from one of the standard Fedora presentation templates:
So this is not an image heavy presentation (at leas I don't think so). This presentation used to load a lot quicker in F-16 and older.
p.s. libreoffice version:
due to an unfortunate interaction between the spec file
setting CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS to something that does not include
any optimization flags, and the LO build system in 3.5
newly respecting CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS passed to configure,
the 3.5 versions up to 22.214.171.124-3 were built
without any compiler optimization.
please try if your performance problem is gone
in version 126.96.36.199-4.
I tested with 188.8.131.52-5.fc17 and the speed seems back to normal.
libreoffice-184.108.40.206-6.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
libreoffice-220.127.116.11-6.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
