Desktop effects on Fedora slow down the video players.
Hello all,

I have Fedora 8 running, and I have enabled the desktop effects. The problem comes whenever I play a video file. The thing is, when I do not maximize/minimize the window, it works fine. But when I alter the window size, the video becomes very slow and all the applications that are running seem to respond to the mouse-clicks very slowly. Does that mean that I should get a graphics card? I have 1GB of RAM.

I faced such a problem too, but that was on my laptop. I have a similar configuration as yours on it, but the Graphics Card is what even I think makes the difference.

Yeah, might be. Because, some sort of error says that the graphics accelerator should be there. I found this when I googled.

yes, you should be running a graphics accelerator of some sort. You probably are., make sure you are actually using the accelerated drivers for it, google for nvidia or ati/amd drivers

Can somebody suggest about this? Isn't there a way around this? I cannot afford a Graphics Card :( Worst case, which is the cheapest in the market? You can see my HW in the signature.
