    UT input issue


    This has been happening for awhile, but I finall managed to put my finger on it.

    I start UT, like you would. It all works, and works well. But the mouse movement lags, and I just found that the keyboard does the same thing.

    It is really annoying in UT, but it also happens on the main screen too, which makes it worse.

    I am wondering what the hell is the problem??

    Stuff worth noting:
    - Is a laptop
    - Runs Gentoo
    - Trackpad & usb mouse do the exact same thing
    - Runs Xorg 7, but problem also existed in Xorg 6.8

    I really need help with this one, it is driving me mad!

    How bad's the lag? I had the same problem before when using Xorg 7, and it turns out my Nvidia driver wasn't accelerating things...so I'd check into that if I were you.

    The lag is around a second, although it is probably not that much.

    One thing I should of mentioned, is that I am running with an Ati graphics card.

    That could be the issue, but if it wasn't for the input issue, then I would have perfect performance.

    As I said b4, it is not just Xorg 7 that did it. And it's not just a certain version of the drivers either, I just upgraded them.

    How did you check "it"? I am kinda sure that the ati drivers are working. There is a command I ran, which I cannot remember off the top of my head, which showed me that opengl & dri was set to Ati.

    Thanks for your response Javasnob

    I should have bumped it earlier.
