Subject: [gentoo-user] KDE-4.1 apps render slowly
Date: Sat, 09 Aug 2008 08:00:55
1 Hi all,
3 This post might be a bit vague, sorry about that, I'm not sure where to start
4 or how to explain it.
6 New laptop with nVidia GeForce 8600. Arch ~amd64, emerged kde-meta-4.1, but it
7 renders exceptionally slowly on the screen when scrolling. The effect is as if
8 something is keeping the system very busy while input actions occur:
10 It can take 30 secs to scroll slashdot's front page from top to bottom.
11 Any web page displayed in akregator inside kontact is even slower.
12 When kwallet pops up asking for the master password, it misses keystrokes when
13 typing at normal speed.
14 Scrolling through a long mail in kmail is slightly slower than normal, but
15 scrolling the same mail in a reply window is full speed.
16 Konqueror in split-window mode takes a few seconds to react when navigating
17 through directories.
19 Firefox works normally. I use e17 as the window manager, so I'm seeing this
20 just using KDE apps, not the whole DE. top, krells and other regular tools
21 show the system running normally, no apparent spikes or busyness.
23 Can anyone point me in the direction of a nice howto or the correct tools to
24 figure out what's going on here?
