[Bug 257810] x11/gnome3(-lite) & x11/gdm lags significantly on amdgpu

https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=257810 --- Comment #7 from Graham Perrin <email@example.com> --- (In reply to Neel Chauhan from comment #6) Thanks, is there any non-GNOME use case that benefits from DRI 2? I assume that <https://wiki.freebsd.org/GraphicsOld/DRI3> is stale but not yet <https://wiki.freebsd.org/CategoryStale> categorised as such. What's the simplest possible concise explanation of preferring 2 instead of 3? (I see <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_Rendering_Infrastructure#DRI3> but trying to interpret that in normal order, let alone in reverse (2 instead of 3), is quite mind-bending.) <https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=xorg.conf&sektion=5&manpath=FreeBSD-Ports#DRI_SECTION> directs readers to <https://dri.freedesktop.org/> but then (sorry) it's not clear which path to take; <https://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/CategoryFaq/> is a scattering of things. Here in Bugzilla is not the best place for explanations, so maybe someone can edit something temporarily into <https://wiki.freebsd.org/Graphics> or <https://wiki.freebsd.org/Gnome> pending more formal edition into (I guess) <https://www.freebsd.org/gnome/>. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
