Hi Jin: Yes, i've encountered the same symptom on both my servers: . Intel P4 + ATI Radeon . AMD64X2 + nVidia So, what i do is move the mouse once and then get to the typing of code/mail etc. But once i use rich X based application like browser, krita, it is very difficult and exasperating to use the app. Currently, i just switch to my Gentoo laptop to access web browser / graphics editing. Thanks for sharing the observation or else this conversation wouldn't have got started. thanks Saifi. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
