I have a problem with X, everything runs fine on my machine except that scrolling is very slow in all my applications (mozilla, evolution, etc...). I mean it's incredibly slow whether I use the keyboard or the mouse to scroll. From the login prompt to mozilla, it takes time to display anything.
I tried to reconfigure X but I still have the same problem
I tested my drive speed with hdparm : no problem UDMA is enabled (17,82 Mo/sec)
My video card is fully supported by Xfree ....
I tried :
-minimal theme under gnome
-16bit colors instead of 24bit (the RAM is shared with the videocard)
-I also tried to allow more memory usage for my video card in the xfree config file
but same results....
so I can assure you it's a matter of configuration it's not because of low performances from the pc. (let's mention that gnome and X used to run really well before on other distros and same machine)
I still don't know what to do, I 've tried many times to modify my xfree config and now I think it might be because of something else..
Do you know if there are other config options for xfree elsewhere than in the XF86config-4 file ???
Any help is appreciated
Thanks for your help
