Thread: 11.3 wine and derivatives freeze and cause KDE display change

  1. #1

    Thumbs down 11.3 wine and derivatives freeze and cause KDE display change

    Hello,

    Since opensuse 11.3 I can't use wine properly again: picasa (built-in wine) and crossover office will both extremely slow down my desktop, even if the wine-application will launch in slowmotion. Along with this issue, there is often a KDE box appearing with the announcement that display-settings have changed. These will appear in mass and overlap (from 6 to 70 message boxes).

    There is clearly a big issue with the last openSUSE. Is it already known? How to fix it?

    Best regards,
    Quentin

    I use some wine apps, have no issues like this at all.

    The only delays I see are the first run after updating the wine app itself
    while it updates it's config stuff.

    I run several win apps under wine on several machines. The only ones that
    have any noticeable affect on the desktop response are fairly memory hungry
    ones on machines with limit RAM. Once swapping starts thing can get dodgy.
    If memory is even close to being too small, that's your first point of
    attack. One older box with 1 GB of RAM will slow down with wine running an
    accounting app while the user also has oo going along with a firefox session
    - but it does a similar trick with any combo of apps using similar
    resources.

    SHIFT+ALT+F12, disable composite and try again. Better results?
