I subscribed to this list to post some issues I am experiencing with
rdesktop under OS X Leopard's X.org implementation. I have included my post
to Apple's X11 mailing list in hopes that someone here will have a clue so I
can pass it along to Apple as a bug, potentially or so an update can be made
to rdesktop if required.
Thanks so much for everyone's time.
My post to Apple's X11 list:
It is very cool to see the forward progress with X11 on OS X. I use it
heavily every day at work and really appreciate the efforts being put into
this. As a developer myself, the work involved is much appreciated.
My question is this. Is it a known issue for the sluggishness of redrawing
windows in X11 on Leopard? Here is a detailed example. I use rdesktop
(compiled from source) at work to connect to many Windows servers for
management. Previously with Tiger, the window updating speed was as it
should be, there was no noticeable delay with doing things inside the X11
window. With Leopard and the new X.orgimplementation, operations done
inside an X11 window are very painful because of the 'chunky' redrawing of
the window as things happen on the remote server. It is almost to the point
of unusable unless I am working inside of an editor on the remote server
where not much is being redrawn.
I believe I read some posts a few days ago on the Apple discussion boards
where another guy was experiencing the same behavior and has posted bugs for
this. Are there active bugs in the X11 work queue for this issue?
Thanks so much,
