I have a suite of Motif applications that perform well under the following operating
systems / X-Servers:
SunOS OpenWindows and MIT X11R4 and X11R5
HPUX 9.03 +
AIX 3.2 +
I recently ported it to Solaris 2.4. It was compiled using gcc 2.6.3 . The
Motif libraries are Version 1.2 from Sun (through IXI). Version 1.2.2 is on order.
Some screens are running *way* too slow. Using the Solaris 2.4 compilation, there
are a couple of screens that take about 60 seconds to repaint after they have been
resized. On all the other platforms, these same screens take 2 or 3 seconds to
repaint. The only thing I see as different about the real slow screens from all the
other screens that repaint at a reasonable rate is that they have a lot of XmText
widgets. The hardware platforms are identically configured in both cases: Sun Sparc
1+ systems with 32MB memory and plenty of disk and swap space.
Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas why the screens with a lot of XmText
widgets repaint so slow?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
