I dont know if the problem is with the "radeon" driver, but Im assuming it is.
Once I load gtk-recordmydesktop, Xorg process takes up about 60% of my cpu. (even while not doing anything)
If I start recording, Im lucky if recordmydesktop can capture 1 fps. (whether run from gtk-record or just normal recordmydesktop from a prompt). Tried all the options, doesnt make a difference. Window manager doesnt seem to make a differnce, from beryl to metacity to fluxbox...
This is on a amd64/3200 X800 Ati card, 1 gig ram (32 bit linux installed though).
Conversly, my 2nd box, a p3-800/192 megs ram with an old nvidia card can record the desktop just fine.
Any ideas, or just blame the radeon driver?? :)
Maybe radeon doesnt play nicely with libXdamage?
I searched google, but couldnt find any reference or anything anywhere.
(havent tried fglrx, and dont really plan on it)
If Xorg needs 60% to get ~1fps, then the problem is most likely
to be in your driver/card configuration.
I'm afraid though, that I can't offer any advice on this, as I
don't have any experience in a similar hardware setup.
Its just so weird, this is the only application I have found that doesnt perform that well.
All normal 2d applications work right, 3d works right (quake3, ut2004, etc).
I know the oss radeon driver isnt 100% done, so it must be missing something that recordmydesktop uses.
Oh well, thanks for the response.
