Enlightenment makes the mouse freeze intermittently
I just started using X on my group's Nautilus, and (almost) everything
works great! Galeon/mozilla, gnumeric, evolution... I am so impressed
that so much works so well under alpha -- but then, most stuff also
works well on my pmac at home, and a Netwinder I use (ARM). Haven't
tried making the Voodoo 3 DRM work yet, will have to upgrade to a 2.4
kernel first... Hooray for cross-platform free software, and Debian in
So, the one problem I'm having is that if I run enlightenment, the mouse
stops working for a couple of seconds at a time, then works for a couple
of seconds, on and off. With sawfish, I see this one-or-two second
delay only once every few minutes, and don't see it at all with no WM
running -- then again, haven't spent enough time sans WM to know whether
that has the every-few-minutes problem like sawfish.
Oh- enlightenment also segfaults a lot, but haven't looked into this yet
with gdb/strace. And it's unlikely to be supported, since they're
focusing on E17...
This is a UP1000 with Voodoo3 and debconf-managed XF86Config-4 and
Xwrapper-config, X nice-value set to -10.
