I am reporting this, so that the problem does not get forgotten - we already had a discussion on this issue at the newsgroup, starting at news://news.mozilla.org:119/EeqdnfXQo6GUVNHYnZ2dnUVZ_vednZ2d@mozilla.org Here is another example with similar problems: http://www.carto.net/papers/svg/gui/Window/index.svg It seems like Tim Rowley identified a problem with the cairo library and "cairo_xlib_render_disabled" So we hope that Cairo will fix this issue in order to get better perfomance in the future. Reproducible: Always Actual Results: Performance in the given examples is inacceptable. Refresh rates with 1 frame per 2 seconds or so, and the impression that the Xserver hangs. Expected Results: Acceptable performance of the SVG renderer on Linux (similar to the performance on Windows)
Seems to work well today. FIXED ?
Andreas, can you take another look at this using an up to date trunk build? http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/
performance seems to be ok now on Linux. I tested with another machine, I will test again with the original computer I reported the bug with. It could well be graphics card/Xserver related. I will reporte if its fixed on the other machine as well. Generally, performance seems to be similar across win/lin/mac now. Thanks, Andreas
Okay, so I'll assume this is fixed Andreas. Please reopen if you find the other machine still has problems.
