Bug#390626: glxgears flickers a lot, slow 2d graphic operations
while 2.1.2-1 apparently fixes bug 389404 + 389794, 2d graphic operations
are quite slow with it compared to 188.8.131.52-4 of the driver.
glxgears shows the gears again but it is flickering a lot... After
quitting it it shows the following message:
martin@deepdance:/usr/share/doc/xserver-xorg-video-savage -> glxgears
libGL error: drmMap of framebuffer failed (Invalid argument)
libGL error: reverting to (slow) indirect rendering
X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
I tried 6.5.0.cvs.20060524-1.1 of libgl1-mesa-dri, libgl1-mesa-glx,
libglu1-mesa and then I updated 6.5.1.
Scrolling in Konqueror, KMail, Firefox and other apps is quite slow.
Scrolling in Konsole is still fast. Scrolling was really fast with
version 184.108.40.206-4 of the driver
My xorg.conf Driver section:
Option "Accel" "True"
Option "AccelMethod" "exa"
Option "HWCursor" "True"
# AGP: Should be able to do 4x
Option "AGPMode" "4"
# Powermanagement: Don't know whether this works with the savage
Option "DynamicClocks" "True"
# For AROS http://www.aros.org Option "BackingStore" "True"
I also tried without AccelMethod exa, without DynamicClocks and without
BackingStore - no change.
