Make compiz fly!



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi!

I just want to share some tweak for compiz with you. I have successfully
installed compiz and it works perfectly. The only drawback I've had were
performance issues when the system was under heavy load (e.g. compiling,
or running java apps). I've had to disable compiz to be able to use the
system again.

However, I have found a solution: I use schedtool to give X highest
round-robin priority. Rendering is now incredibly fast. Here is what you
have to do:

1. Download and build schedtool (make sure you have installed
kernel-devel). Use "make no_affinity" to build schedtool.

	http://freequaos.host.sk/schedtool/schedtool-1.1.2.tar.bz2

2. Run schedtool as root and give X highest priority (perhaps a bit
much, especially if you use other real-time apps):

	schedtool -R -p 1 `pgrep Xorg`

Notice the improvement...

Best regards!
Christian
