Default glxgears @ 1FPS!

(moved from another thread)

Hi,
I'm depressed to read that folks think 300 FPS is poor, anything would be an improvement on 1FPS!

I've included information from the logs etc but I can't find any errors. DRI appears to be loaded so I've no idea why the low frame rate.

Messing about I changed the permissions on /dev/drm0 from
crw-rw---- to crw------- and performance improves.

sudo chmod g-rw /dev/drm0
$ glxgears
481 frames in 5.0 seconds = 95.993 FPS
479 frames in 5.0 seconds = 95.743 FPS
478 frames in 5.0 seconds = 95.471 FPS
481 frames in 5.0 seconds = 96.019 FPS

then change it back.
sudo chmod g+rw /dev/drm0
$ glxgears
9 frames in 6.0 seconds = 1.496 FPS
8 frames in 6.0 seconds = 1.333 FPS
7 frames in 6.0 seconds = 1.167 FPS


Information from logs etc
uname -a
OpenBSD hobnob.home 5.3 GENERIC.MP#62 amd64


glxinfo |grep renderer

and from Xorg log.

Any help appreciated.

Long story short, the work to make r600 chipsets' interrupt polling work hasn't been done yet.

Rocket357,

I created /etc/drirc and copied in the code from the link. I'm astonished! Thank you.

glxgears
IRQ's not enabled, falling back to busy waits: 0 10
3741 frames in 5.0 seconds = 748.191 FPS
3745 frames in 5.0 seconds = 748.883 FPS
3739 frames in 5.0 seconds = 747.655 FPS
3745 frames in 5.0 seconds = 748.852 FPS

KMS support for the radeon cards has been pulled into 5.4-CURRENT for at least a month now, so you should have pretty good 3D support in OpenBSD 5.4.

I don't know if it is relevant for your hardware(hd6310)/problem but I can second angryfirelord's suggestion on better support. I just upgraded from 5.3 to 5.4-CURRENT because I was having issues with hardware acceleration in X. See this thread. Now I'm running -current and everything worked out of the box.

Hi,
I've been away from BSD for a number of years and have just installed 5.9 on the same machine I posted about above in 2013. I've run glxgears and I get 60FPS, well at least it is not 1! There are no errors in Xorg.log and I've tried the fix from rocket357 above but it made no difference. I've set machdep.apperture=2 but that did not seem to make any difference.
Any ideas?

Glenn.

Disable vertical sync using environment variable vblank_mode.
This will run glxgears for 16 seconds and then kill glxgears.
Code:
vblank_mode=0 glxgears & sleep 16 ; pkill glxgears ;

Hi,
that gave me 1500 FPS which is twice what I got 3 years ago. At this rate I'll never have to buy a new laptop

Anyway, I do get terrible (choppy) youtube play back using Chromium and Firefox and I was wondering if that was related to FPS, but I don't think so as mplayer works OK and I can watch DVDs. The network performance seems OK as the videos load quickly and I've got 4G ram and hardly used any of it.

I'll not worry about it.

thanks,

glenn.

Firefox has choppy youtube playback. Maybe new SMP strategy will make it more watchable.
Chromium should work better, at least for me it is working. I would mount /tmp as tmpfs directory. I don't know if this is going to make youtube playable, but for me pages are more responsive and there are no lags when scrolling, when /tmp is mounted as tmpfs.
