@ttuuxxx: How about a "pure" 4.31.2 release (no Firefox,no Xorg downgrade,no insert key crash tweaks) with these additions:

- Memtest86+ (accessible before booting Puppy with a 'memtest' or pfix="test" command)
- The latest SVN build of mtPaint
- Firelog
- A network monitor / bandwidth meter
- A cpu usage meter in the tray (xload is NOT a CPU usage meter)

So are you trying to say that running glxgears twice will give a slower result the second time?
This I do not observe.

The BoxPup CPU usage display down in the tray is SUPERB.

I miss it in other Puppies. Sad

Yes. That's what I get with older versions of Xorg Smile
Not only glxgears,but other apps can also trigger the performance decrease (disable the pageflipping)

Old versions of Xorg / Xserver also have problems with widescreen resolutions (i.e. 1920x1080)

hmm...don't seem to get that but do notice quite a drop in performance from 16 bit color to 24 bit color...eg 900fps to 500fps with glxgears...I usually use 16 bit.

I don't use 16 bit color. Many apps don't work in 16-bit (pseudo-color) mode.

hmmm...epsxe wanted 24 for its open gl driver .most 3d games I have are running on wine which handles 16bpp ok......
perhaps the bug applies to 24bpp only hence the difference in behaviour...500 fps is near to 16bpp performance without page flipping enabled which at least in that mode has been consistant for me

Regardless of 3d behaviour I definately get slower X11 performance from xorg 6.8 -> 7.0 -> 7.3...difference goes from snappy to sludgy say when scrolling in rox....a fast xorg with bug free drivers would certainly be the ideal (I have one machine where xv acceleration has not been available since XF86 Sad )

here's a taskbar volume applet that I converted over to use zmixer, its basically like abs volume with a somewhat hidden launch for zmizer under it. Please try it out and see if the volume actually works, absvolume never worked with my motherboard and neither does this one, but its better looking Smile

to start it open a terminal and type
obmixer

Some non-3D apps also require 24bpp color: i.e. Foxit Reader.
