10.1 reflections

    After three hours, I finally got 10.1 working. Remember that Clean Install feature in 9 and below? Remember how nice it was not to have to reformat the main partition when things went wrong. Oh well, I've been meaning to reinstall XFree anyway...

    First up: Isn't moving windows a lot slower or is it just my machine?

    Second: It seems Apple has removed /usr/X11R6/bin from the default path - or maybe it's just because I haven't got the developer tools in yet. In any case, by default I can't double-click XDarwin, and I know I could do that without modifying the PATH with 10.0.4 and XDarwin 1.0a2.

    And could someone please make my Finder stop restarting all the time? Only program that crashes, but it's a fairly fundamental one...

      Moving which windows? Aqua? XDarwin fullscreen? XDarwin rootless?

      Apple never put /usr/X11R6/bin in the PATH. A change in XDarwin 1.0a2 made setting the PATH in login scripts required for XDarwin to start. This wasn't necessary in 1.0a1.

      XDarwin rootless windows move slower and jerkier. Haven't tried full screen yet, it was pretty late last night before I got 10.1 working.

      I've always had /usr/X11R6/bin in my path, and I was pretty sure I hadn't modified the path, but if you're sure...

      I had the same problem after updating to 10.1. The installer change the replace the "login" file.

      Ouch! Full screen is even slower. I also tried different wms, but that didn't seem to have any effect.

      And what is this new SourceForge thing about doubleposting? Any way to disable it?

        What video hardware do you have? The only thing I can think of is that 10.1's video driver for your card isn't as good as 10.0 (at least for the operations XDarwin uses). XDarwin itself hasn't changed anything.

        The "double-post" detector isn't new. I just work around it by tweaking the subject line.

          My mahcine is an iMac DV/400 with Rage 128 8MB. Graphics performance is better overall - XDarwin is the excpetion.

          Notable is that 32bit OpenGL always crashes after 20 seconds or so (to the point where I can't even SSH in) when I play a game in OS X, while 16bit is stable.
