Hmm....on the nv and nouveau drivers - slightly better performance... I wonder if something's just borked with my 173 drivers? Although, I wonder why it didn't work with the mandriva liveCD. I'll continue to report on any progress. Right now I'm considering removing nvidia and reinstalling - just in case.

Uninstalled and reinstalled. Didn't help me out. I'm going to wait until the next set of patches/updates get pulled through Fedora and see if that fixes things. In the meanwhile, I think I'm going to try and find out how to have dual monitors with nv or nouveau.

Now, here's something interesting....the end of my Xorg.0.log files is:

Code:
$ tail /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized AGP GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized AGP GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized AGP GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized AGP GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized AGP GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized AGP GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized AGP GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized AGP GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized AGP GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized AGP GART.
should it be initializing that over and over?

another thing that may help - programs like Blender are running a lot slower than they used to.

Also, decided to check my yum.log. I recently updated:

Code:
Mar 14 14:19:49 Updated: xorg-x11-server-common-1.5.3-15.fc10.i386
Mar 14 14:25:18 Updated: xorg-x11-server-Xnest-1.5.3-15.fc10.i386
Mar 14 14:25:23 Updated: xorg-x11-server-Xephyr-1.5.3-15.fc10.i386
and before that:
Code:
Mar 09 00:56:47 Updated: xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-0.15.2-4.fc10.i386
Mar 09 22:51:19 Updated: kmod-nvidia-173xx-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.i686-173.14.1
6-1.fc10.2.i686
Since I posted the first post in this thread on 14 March, those updates on 14 March are suspect. But are those specific packages likely to be culprits? How could I roll them back to test?
