    Yes, I can confirm that latest radeon git fixed it, thanks. Now I have no more need for radeonhd.

      BUT my cpu is constantly running at 100% by two processes with nice 19. and if i stop them, the sluggish moving of windows disappears
      what are these processes?

        either memory-friendly http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/ work units or memory-eating http://cbl-link02.cs.technion.ac.il/...inkattechnion/ work units. it uses boinc, which is designed not to interfer with any other application.

        radeon performance now returns to normal if i go back to just 2 open windows, which i think is sufficient for now. do you think performance problems are more likely to be fixed in the future through drm or radeon itself?
        radeon would be bad since i seem to be too dumb to compile it ^^

          it seems like
          Option "DMAForXv" "0"
          fixes most of the slowlyness of radeon.

          now i'm a happy radeon user thank you all for your help and patience!

            nice release but just like radeon, just crashes my Xorg.

            no trace in the logs (kernel log, Xorg.0.log and company).

            cannot really understand how to find the reason.

            I'm running an M76.

              Crashes how? locks up? reboots? segfault? Does it crash as soon as the xserver loads or when you do some particular action?

                Can you pastebin your xorg log and dmesg output ?

                  Tested with a Radeon 7000

                  I've just tried using the gnome-display-properties app with a Radeon 7000, and I do get the four rotation options "normal", "left", "right" and "upside down". However, selecting "left" just turned my monitor off, and the only way I could get it back again was to delete the .config/monitors.xml file.

                  The monitor is a DFP connected to DVI-0 and set to 1280x1024.

                      FreeBSD-amd64?

                      Hi all,

                      I'm just lately trying to figure out how the Linux graphics stack works, so I'm sorry for the basic question:

                      Are the highlight features (2D and EXA acceleration, for me) of this new driver release applicable to FreeBSD amd64? What I'm looking for is silky-smooth 2D and video playback in something like compiz, running under FreeBSD amd64 (with a RV770, this would be). Having read what the Nvidia guys have said about the deficiencies of the FreeBSD graphics system, I can't tell if this DRI-based (which I know the Nvidia driver is not) approach works on more than just Linux.

                      Thanks a lot!

                        I *think* the current Xv and EXA code for 6xx/7xx is already running on FreeBSD, thanks to rnoland's efforts. Compiz needs a 3d (Mesa) driver so you can't run with that yet, but metacity seems to be working ok on Linux today and KWin with XRender compositing is working for most people.

                          Thanks a lot, Bridgman. That's great news. Am I right in thinking this is the first accelerated 2D actually available for FreeBSD-amd64? In any case, once I get the card I'll give some compositing window managers a try.

                            I'm don't *think* they were first - my understanding was that most of the accelerated graphics drivers had been ported to FreeBSD already, but I'm not completely sure. It might be good to ask on the xorg mailing list.

                              Nearly every Xorg driver available for linux for the past 2 years has worked on FreeBSD during that same time frame. I have used the intel driver and radeon driver, with full 2D acceleration (and 3D acceleration) on FreeBSD/amd64 at least a year ago, but they were certainly available well before then.

                              And, yes, the necessary ddx and Xorg changes needed for 2D acceleration on r600/r700 cards is available in the ports tree. The DRM in -STABLE is also up-to-date. r100-r500 supports 3D acceleration as well (r500 3D acceleration was added to the DRM in -STABLE a few weeks before the r600/r700 code was added).
