xorg 3d acceleration for nvidia card
I've just noticed that 3d performances of my fx5200 256M nvidia card where far from being up to scratch. It's really slow.
I've done a dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and except from the impression of having better font rendering, I can't see much 3d performance improvement. None at all actually. How can I test that the glx module is loaded ? opengl screen savers run ok, just very slow.
I know it is the nvidia driver that is being used. the nvidia-settings utility says direct rendering is not enabled. Is it the problem ?
Just noticed that in the Xorg.0.log file
further down I found
any help fixing that would be most welcome.
Thanks in advance
go to your screen section under monitor put the backinstore on like this:
Option "BackingStore" "On"
this will make your window dragging not so noticable.
about the glx - try running the nvidia-bug-report.sh script from nvidia so you get some more info why it is failing.
and shouldn't the module be nvidia-glx that comes with the nvidia package?
Will do. the nvidia glx thing sounds like a lead.... Thanks
Well it wasn't. I think it's a recent break in the sid version of x.org cause I've just found a game I did play straight after installing my current video card and it played just fine. Now, even the introduction is slow.
Just have to wait for a fix. First time in a few years that sid deserve its 'unstable' tag for me....
