updated to ubuntu 11.10, major slow performance hit
« on: October 18, 2011, 05:16:41 pm »
hello!

i'm still basically a linux noob, so i may be overlooking something very simple.  anyway, i updated to oneiric yesterday, and i've noticed some serious slowdown on the geoscape and in missions (but not at the title screen).  i guess it's not game breaking, but it's certain frustrating... ideas?  should i try a complete reinstall?

and on that subject, is the deb package for 2.4 considered stable enough for regular use?

maybe you are now using the open source gfx drivers - make sure to install the closed source ati/nvidia drivers

also attaching the ufoconsole.log would help to answer this.

drivers fixed it!  thank you!

for some asinine reason, i assumed that would happen automatically when i updated the OS.
