Angry SDL apps running awfuly slow

Somehow all the SDL 3D (for example Chromium) apps begun to run very slow (this means about 0.5 FPS). Those non-SDL 3d apps (LBreakout2) are running OK. I don't know how this could happen - just it happened - over the night - I didn't changed my system configuration (knowingly)...

Btw - my system is Mandrake 9.1 with kernel 2.4.21

It's more likely that you're experiencing a failure in OpenGL rather than SDL. Chromium uses OpenGL, lbreakout2 doesn't.

Consider installing the latest drivers from your graphics card manufacturer.
