Description rcrelia 1999-01-19 14:48:33 EST
After installing the latest 3D_Labs server for XFree86 from
updates.redhat.com on my Dell Precision 610 workstation,
I discovered that my system clock slows to a crawl after
starting X, regardless of window manager used. Even after
leaving X, the clock is still affected until I reboot.

My Dell comes with the Diamond Fire GL 1000 PRO 8mb (AGP,
Permedia2, 250MHz RAMDAC) card. I have not tried building
XFree86 3.3.3-1 from scratch, but don't really want to
either! :-)

Basically, my workstation is useless except as a console
terminal. Doh.

Please respond ASAP.  Many thanks!!!

This has been observed to be true in the test lab. We are working on
posting an updated XFree86 Server for the 3D_labs cards soon.

This has been resolved by our update release of XFree86
