Re: Slowness appears from 6.4 to 6.4.1
Please make sure that you are actually running devg-radeon.so in both.
Do diff on /etc/system/config/display.conf

RE: Slowness appears from 6.4 to 6.4.1
Hi Art. Betweem 6.4.0 and 6.4.1 the browser engine used to run
Helpviewer changed from vserver.file (Voyager server) to mozserver
(Firefox 2.0 based server). This explains the slowdown in Helpviewer,
which was a known tradeoff for the more advanced features offered.
As far as the Bon Echo browser itself, nothing of significance changed.
The source base went from Firefox 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52, and it was built
using 6.4.0 instead of 6.3.2, but nothing should have changed to slow it
down. In fact some blitting improvements were made that could not all
make it into 6.4.0.
Can you provide more details on the non-Helpviewer issues?

Subject: Slowness appears from 6.4 to 6.4.1
When comparing 6.4.1 to 6.4 on exactly the same hardware I find graphics
much slower. For example switching pages in Helpviewer- under 6.4.1 I
can see it happening from top to bottom, under 6.4 it is instantaneous.
Browser performance is likewise visibly slower (hovering over drop-down
menus on QNX home page will even cause mouse pointer to briefly
disappear). This is using exactly the same hardware and swapping hard
drives containing 6.4 and 6.4.1. This is on standard x86 PC.
Brought over /lib/dll/devg-radeon.so from 6.4 to 6.4.1 and slowness
remained, so I don't think it is due to the driver. Did anything else
