Description of problem:
When running gnome-terminal with Phoebe, scrolling is much slower than when
using gnome-terminal under 8.0.
When I run:
the output appears scrolls extremely slowly down the screen, takes a long time
to finish completely. When I run this on a RH8 system, it is much faster. Also,
if I run xterm with the same command, the ls command finishes in a second or
two, much faster than gnome-terminal.
The same bug appears when running anything that causes text to scroll down the
terminal, such as a cat command, etc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gnome-terminal (I've used command line as well as "New Terminal..."
2. Execute the command: ls /*
3. Watch the information slowly scroll down the terminal.
Actual Results: Everything was listed correctly, just very slowly.
Expected Results: Everything should have been listed in a couple seconds.
No error message.
System is a RH8 laptop upgraded to Phoebe
CPU usage seems to be VERY high for the X process while gnome-terminal is
This was fixed, g-t can now do the ls faster than xterm.
Not sure if it's in rawhide. The package to upgrade would be vte
not g-t. (And the package to assign this bug to if you ever reopened
it would also be vte.)
