Does anyone know of an Xft speed test application that I could use to
which operations are slow? (Or just another Xft-intensive applicatiion which
I could install (ideally from macports!) ...)
On another note, I have now observed that there are a number of X Errors being
reported in the console from which XEmacs is being run.
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 66 (X_PolySegment)
Serial number of failed request: 78700
Current serial number in output stream: 78709
I first tried XFT xemacs after installing leopard and found it
very appealing, but with an unusably slow redraw (think 2400 baud :-).
Also saw tons of BadMatch on X_PolySegment as above.
After upgrading X using the developer (unofficial) build from
and rebuilding XEmacs it all works great. On perception alone, it
seems just as fast to me as non-XFT XEmacs, altho cpu usage maybe
a bit higher when typing.
