Dumb question


Recently I've been installing several linux games. Some of which have dependencies like libglutmesa and lots of other open gl library files. After installing all these i noticed that my frame rate on one of my xscreensavers isn't as high as it used to be. Could these open gl libraries have over written my nvidia driver, should I reinstall the nvidia driver? Games don't seem to run slower than usual, just wondering if I should be concerned by this or not.

It's possible that your slower-running apps are using the wrong libraries. Check out the Nvidia README, in Appendix C, where it talks about libGL and libGLcore and adjusting your ldconfig search path.

I read through that readme but it is a little over my head. I'm not sure which libraries my 3D apps are SUPPOSE to use and I don't know how to modify the search path to tell them to use the proper ones.

I figured this one out. It was pretty dumb on my part. In many of the xscreensaver's settings windows there is a speed slide bar. And after i updated my xscreensaver to version 4.15 the slide bar was simply on a slower setting which made the fps lower.
