The "inner" scroll region? No sluggishness or slowdown. Noticeable
CPU usage by /usr/bin/X11/X when I rapidly jerk the scroll bar up
and down, but that's normal.
the NV or Nvidia driver?
Sorry. The nvidia driver.
I forgot to ask if you were running a high resolution monitor, perhaps
1600x1200 or greater? Are you running any of the 3d accelerated
or regular 2d window manager?
A y2k-vintage Gateway VX1120 (Hitachi Diamondtron flat-screen CRT)
at 1280x1024 with GNOME & Metacity. (I see no reason to waste
resources on eye candy.)
Tonight I tried the sluggish website I mentioned in an earlier post
(http://www.tempus-vivit.net/taverne/thema/935), but at a 1280x1024
resolution. Better, still sluggish, but not the molasses that
1600x1200 was. Dropping down to 1024x768, things were very snappy and
the sluggishness was completely gone.
I'm giving up on the Nvdia cards. Seems I'm not the only one having
serious issues with 2D support with their latest driver series. I'm
glad to say that I on;y paid $12 USD for the Quadro card on eBay.
What color depth?
My card is an air-cooled
*Arrowing* down that page definitely isn't as fast as arrowing down a
Slashdot page, but I'd attribute that to the page's extra complexity and
the page down or grab the slider bar and not think a 2nd thought about it.
While Googling and reading, I found this app:
Here are my results:
$ gtkperf -c 1000
GtkPerf 0.40 - Starting testing: Mon Aug 11 03:26:13 2008
I also had to stop using Xfce-Terminal. Resizing the terminal window
took at least 3-4 seconds and made X slow to a crawl. No such issues on
the the Thinkpad with GMA graphics.
I also tried a fresh install of Debian Sid on a spare hard disk, built
the NVIDIA driver with module assistant, and kept things to a graphical
minimum, i.e, solid colored root window, simple default GTK theme. Same
issues. I even took out the Quadro and put in an older Evga 7800GTX 512
card that I had sitting on a shelf. 2D was actually slightly worse on
this higher end card.
