    They will both work with SW rendering. Can you check the render string in glxinfo -- "glxinfo | grep render" ? It's easier than picking through the Xorg log.

    IIRC diagonal lines are not accelerated with glamor right now (so SW rendering would be faster) but there are some initial patches to accelerate them. I think you'll find you're running with SW rendering right now so you'll never be happy with the results -- suggest you go back to glamor but hunt down the patches to speed up line drawing. If I find the thread / bug ticket I'll post it back here.

      Thanks. Here's where I got my info from.

      For the time being I'm going to move the amd r7 240 card over to an idle dual xeon i7 nehalem based system I have here (one of the old build/testmachines), plug that into the seiki and play with it there. No reason to interfere with my real working hardware, eh?

        Yep, that looks like the same ticket I was thinking about. It seems likely that Windowmaker performance will come together before gtkperf (circles), but that seems like a reasonable sequence anyways

          its a very sad day. I had to install a demo version of windows 8.1 and download the catalyst drivers to make sure the seiki monitor would work with the r7 240 card at 4k resolution. Man I can't believe how *bad* windows 8 (and 8.1) is, I mean REALLY BAD. People pay to get abused like this?

            And then complain about how hard to use Linux is, yes.

            Honestly, some of the Windows fan boys I talk to, I hear buyers remorse. They know their paid a huge chunk of change for this OS, and especially in the case of 8, it is a horrible mess. So they get into denial about how honestly bad it is, "but the start menu isn't that bad, I'm getting used to it, maybe I'll buy a touchscreen so it works as intended!"

              I don't remember where I read it, but this is a funny quote:

              The PC market has been in a slump for the last five quarters.
              ...
              Coincidentally, Windows 8 has been out for five quarters.
