    Has anyone else noticed the extreme 2d slowness under kwin with compositing enabled? e.g. things like fading-in right-click menus or file-dialogs are unbearably slow. I bisected it and tracked it down to the commit that introduced swap&sync support and filed a bug here: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28992. Would be nice if someone could confirm this.
    BTW, shouldn't this thread be in the Open-Source AMD/ATI Linux-forum? :>

    Well well, for the sync:
    ( http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/CompositeSwap )

    Testing

    The code for the above is present in several repos and patches:
    kernel - 2.6.33-rc
    libdrm - 2.4.17 or newer
    dri2proto - 2.2 or newer
    glproto - 1.4.11 or newer
    mesa - master branch (will be in 7.8)
    xserver - master branch (will be in 1.9)
    xf86-video-intel - master branch (will be in 2.11)
    For a change the only nonreleased item is the X server

    Confused as always...
    Looks like 2.6.32 is enough for KMS uevent (if you're using Ubuntu Lucid, bear in mind that it uses the DRM code from 2.6.33). I think 2.6.33 will work for sync, but I'm not sure.

    If you use Ubuntu, it's easy enough to install a newer kernel (assuming you don't use any non-free drivers). Compiling newer mesa/libdrm can be more difficult, but I was able to get the Ubuntu Maverick mesa and libdrm to build on Ubuntu Lucid. If you know how to build a package on Ubuntu, you know enough to get the newer mesa and libdrm installed.
