Speeding up Xfbdev
« on: December 01, 2014, 03:21:50 PM »
I frequently need to boot into corepure64 base, so I searched for speed tips for the framebuffer and found the following tip.
Add the following to your kernel boot line:

video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr:3

This not only speeds up scrolling, but in my experience, it speeds up window redraws as well.
Makes Xfbdev performance close to Xvesa.
Very helpful :-)
