Re: X4 is slow on Neomagic (NM2200)

I use woody and upgraded to X4. The upgrade was painless and the

scrolling in netscape hurts badly.

Is this normal behaviour, or perhaps a configuration error?


I don't know if this applies to your setup, but last week, I had a problem where helix-gnome was very slow, but enlightenment was not. ( Under X3.3.6 )

The problem turned out to be that helix-gnome was using enlightenment as it's window manager instead of sawfish. Setting it back to sawfish fixed the problem.
