View Full Version : Any way to tweak opensource radeon driver for beryl?

11th April 2007, 10:54 PM
Im running an ati radeon 9250 with the opensource drivers that came with fedora/autoconfigurated. Is there any way I can tweak the xorg.conf file with this driver to get better performance with beryl? I have beryl installed and it performs alright, but certain tasks run too slow, such as typing in a URL in firefox. In general it performs really poorly. Heres my xorg.conf:

# Xorg configuration created by pyxf86config

I remember once switching my display resolution to "thousands of colors" rather than "millions of colors" and it seemed to give me a performance boost without any noticeable difference in resolution. Although in a few instances this will cut off the top of your window with beryl.
