Patch A causes X apps to run slow - zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Any idea why after installing patch A, x apps (at least the ones I am
running such as nedit and ddd) seem to run at about half the speed (it was
slow before) ? - i’m talking about screen updates here. Basically if I page
down, you virtually see every line get updated as it refreshes.

Is there a solution to this at all?

Regards

Jim

How fast is your computer ? Mine seems a little slower with QNX6 (there I
said it :slight_smile: but not that much slower (i.e. with nedit “page down” is
instantaneous, holding the “down arrow”, however, will show some lag as the
scroll area is repainted incrementally).

Is your video accellerated ? There would be major problems with Xphoton and
a flat mode driver.
