Re: Poor Xorg performance in Etch
I have also disabled images and link prefetching. None of these changes fix the
On the same site I found a page that scrolls even more slowly:
New observations after further testing: First, I think I was mistaken, and this
problem does not occur in my other Etch system. Secondly, top shows only one
CPU pegged at 100%, while the overall CPU utilization is 50%, suggesting that
the other CPU is idle. Taken together these seem to suggest a possible SMP or
motherboard issue (MSI K9MM-V).
I posted too soon. Apparently the image setting had not taken hold, and when I
did disable it the problem went away, both in Iceape and Konqueror. This seems
odd because the page is mostly text, with only a few small images. Now I am
guessing there is some kind of image library issue.
