Hi,
Lately there was xorg upgrade 1.13 -> 1.14 (and all releated stuff) After that I have big issue with xbmc I can really move cursor because it take 2-3 sec to react. And what is more I'm unable to watch mplayer in full screen mode, I see centered movie of ~1/3 of screen.
I suspect graphics since normally I use fluxbox but sometimes I swich to xfce4 and there I use compiz and it take 50% of CPU.

I have AMD E450 with HD6520:
- x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-7.2
- x11-base/xorg-server-1.14.3

What details do you need to figura out what's wrong? Anybody have similar problems?

Hi, is there any easy way to roll back to previous stable xorg version w/ drivers without masking dozens packages which were updated with xorg-server. Anyway I don't know which really I need to mask. I want check if I back to ~1.13. I got same issue or it will be not present.

What you describe clearly reflects a driver issue.
xbmc heavily uses 3D acceleration, and react the way you describe in case there is no such acceleration and it falls back to SW emulation.
You can test if you have 3D acceleration using a command like glxinfo (or similar, I'm not in front of the PC now). If this is the cause, it means fiddling with DRI or GLX options or whatever is needed by ATI nowadays (I never got around to really understanding all of these accronyms and when what applies :-)

glxinfo shows that 3D is up and running:
Code:
 # glxinfo | grep render
direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.1, 128 bits)
    GL_NV_conditional_render, GL_NV_fog_distance, GL_NV_light_max_exponent,


but xorg not:
Code:
 # grep -E "EE|WW" /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Whan I update kernel I
- did remove x11-drivers/radeon-ucode and emerge sys-kernel/linux-firmware Bug 455208
- add firmware in kernel as is described here: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Radeon#Firmware to get early splash screen
- update xorg/drivers

So question:
- so what happen when I boot older kernel it you different firmware, different kernel module, different xorg-video-driver... I'm a bit lost.
- but booting older kernel do not change xorg-video-driver so issue is with kernel configuration?
- what should I do stick with older kernel and try upgarde kernel or try fix new kernel
