Xorg 1.5 - a step in the right direction

Filed under
Software

Interestingly enough, I recently upgraded to xorg-server 1.5 from 1.3. I removed my xorg file, and it works passably. It’s choice of graphics drivers is a little annoying - I’ve been using radeonhd and getting 3-5000 frames in glxgears. Now I’m getting about 1000, and it pegs my cpu.

However, all functionality on my mouse is auto detected - horizontal and vertical scrolling, backwards and forwards buttons. This means that my previous posts on scrolling are now obsolete - but that is life.

It has done a lousy job at guessing a good video card driver, though - at least from a performance perspective. I was using radeonhd and getting 3-5000 frames in glxgears. Now I’m getting about 1000, and it pegs my cpu.
