I have recently switched the OS on my laptop from Mandrake 8.0 to Redhat 8.0, and the game I've been woking on goes from 17 frames/s to 10 frames/s
Has anyone else seen these problems?
I'm continuing to try and find the source of the problem -- I believe that it might be the compiler (Rh->gcc3.2 Vs Md->gcc->2.96)
I've also found some strange slowdowns from I/O. I used to have some debugging messages that went allong with each mouse move. On the new RH system these printf's caused the gl-updates to crawl. Removing the printf's that went along with the mouse moves brought the performance back to normal (or at least to 10 frames/s).
Any other simmilar experiences with the newest RH?
By the way I'm not trying to start a distro flame war, just trying to work through some problems -- all of the distro's have their own set of problems
