Quite an ugly picture. I doubt that this performance would bring anyone
over to xorg-x11.
Thanks for the tests relating to dri. I use screen resolution 1280 x
1024 which is max for the monitor type that I am using. This resolution
setting might have soething to do with no DRI.
The 16 depth and this fair resolution seem to be the culprets.
I'm happy with 24 depth and 1280 x 1024 resolution. I can live without
the DRI for now.
I read the info i810 documentation and saw the mention of 16 depth for
DRI being a maximum setting for the 815 card.
I'm glad you noticed the depth being different between the 2 xorg.conf
files posted. So no DRI at 16 depth seems to be bad for performance of
the X server.
You will be honored for contributing your time and skill to a worthy cause.
