Re: Profiling X, KDE, KWin and friends...


I've been running Fedora on my machines since FC5 and I have a rather clear understanding of the current situation, especially on the graphics front :) I hope the new architecture (GEM, KMS, tiling, UXA, EXA, etc.) settles down before F12. F11 is bringing a lot of changes hence new bugs, but we're all here to report back and fix them, when possible.

To Adam Jackson: Thanks for the details concerning the -debuginfo packages.

I was having terrible problems with F10 on my 4+year-old laptop, and I

been told) Xorg in F10 had some issues, almost all of which are fixed in
the version that is scheduled for F11.

I'd say you're over-simplifying. :) There were large changes in both the
X server itself and the various hardware drivers in F10, and there are
equally large (or possibly even larger) changes for F11 too. Some things
that were broken in F10 are fixed in F11. Some things that were broken
in F10 are currently still broken in F11. And a few things are broken in
F11 that weren't broken in F10. Obviously we're trying to make sure the
first group of things is as large as possible and the other two as
small, but please don't over-promise, it frequently leads to
disappointment :)
Good points, all of them.  That's why I tried to keep the experience as personal as possible (e.g., "I was having...", "...all my problems...").  My mistake, obviously, was in stating a truth about Xorg server based on my limited set of experiences with it.  Duly noted.  Good job to all the devs, Xorg & otherwise, on F11 progress!
