    Default 8.42.3, debian sid and compiz fusion: massive performance problems

    Hi there,
    I finally got the new 8.42.3 running together with a Xorg 7-3 (X 1.4) on my Debian Sid system.
    when I run compiz, the screen goes black for ~15-20sec, then the windows reappear, without borders. After ~10-15 sec the borders appear. from now on, compiz.real consumes ~60-80 % cpu-power. Everything is quite slow.

    Xorg.conf:
    Code:
    # xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    #   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

    My system is a ThinkPad Z61m with a X1400, after installing the new driver, nexuiz shows ~10% more fps

    Oh, and if I run compiz:
    Code:
    $ compiz --force-fglrx --replace
    A handler is already registered for the path starting with path[0] = "org"
    The Message appears several times.
    When starting compiz fusion icons, I get an area with dark pixels in the lower right corner and sometimes a quadratic flickering field below the mouse cursor (which disappears when hovering a link in FF 3.0A8)

    Any hints?

    that's not possible anymore, because debian removed the 7.2 packages some weeks ago... maybe i have those packages in my local cache...

    ah, good idea
    okay, downgraded to 7.2 and load is much lower. some things still react a bit slower than normal and kicker seems to be frozen, but that doesn't matter at the moment
    thx

    Remove your options in the Driver section. These are for nvidia cards mainly.

    no change, the driver simply ignored the three lines

    While you are at it. Don't forget to put xserver-xorg and a few others on "hold", as in "aptitude hold xserver-xorg". Otherwise they will be upgraded along with other apps.

    already done, I had to stay on 7.2 since sid changed to 7.3 because of the old driver
