any news at all on this.. even a slightly improved driver would be better than nothing!

I now work in the science park in Cambridge, and there's a Toshiba Europe lab nearby, and yet I am still unable to get introduced to someone at Tosh who can help!

Hi guys,

I'm afraid it might only be about the memory controller, but what about this:

sorry, dude, whilst that's useful for sd slot, no information about graphics acceleration programming

Sl6000 Hardware Accelerated Display?

I have found the Tosa ROM 1.12 to be extremely slow in changing between applications compared to my theoretically slow sl5500's ROM 2.38.  I hope this is the right thread!

I take notes and transfer information between various apps and was amazed at how long it has always taken to switch between already apps.  Does this have to do with Accelerated display?  I'm talking between browser, editor, email, even before installed any ipks to the bare bones 1.12.

thanks,

sorry but no, this thread is about the ability to render graphics (whether moving windows around or playing movies).

your problem sounds like you've enabled swap and you've simply run out of ram... or that you're running off SD card and its very slow.

Uh, have done neither AFAIK but I'll go off and study those issues.  Brand new unit, no one else modified orig. ROM, one friend suggested maybe it's an app with a memory leak.  So, more homework to do on this.

thanks,

Mine has never been slow switching between already open apps. I turned off "Fast Load" on all apps that I don't routinely use. I kept it on Address Book only. This frees RAM to make other apps faster. (Click and hold the icon for an app, then uncheck "Fast Load" box.)

yeah, did that first thing  I'm afraid of getting too OT with this so will try to find or start an appropriate thread when I can.
