Re: Poor Xorg performance in Etch

I have removed all plugins, and disabled java, javascript and cookies.
I have also disabled images and link prefetching. None of these changes fix the problem.

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.
