Hi i just reinstalled gentoo. i used the 2.6 kernel. I emerged nvidia-kernel then did nvidia-glx realizing i didnt need to emerge nvidia-kernel at all just nvidia-glx. i finished installing gentoo and now glxgears runs acouple hundred fps slower than my old linux install also 2.6 gentoo. Anyone know what this might be? is it missconfig in my xorg.conf? or is the nvidia drivers fubar?
glgears avg is 1000 WTF that just seems so wrong. i browsed the fourms and found people with same video cards and slower pc's getting around 2k
AMD XP 2500+ (barton) 512MB DDR400 Asus A7VN8X-E Deluxe, MSI Geforce FX 5200 128mb.
3726 frames in 5.0 seconds = 745.200 FPS
3714 frames in 5.0 seconds = 742.800 FPS
2.6 P4 Asus P4P800 GeForceFX 5600 128mb
Xfree86 220.127.116.11 kernel 2.6.3

yep something must be wrong
i don't know anything about Xorg but
are you loading the nVidia agp driver ???
do you have a folder
lets see for me the config lines are
Option "NvAgp" "1"
Option "RenderAccel" "On"
yup have all of that. Last night i installed gentoo onto my crap box 750 Athlon 768Ram Geforce 2 Mx 32meg. Asus A7V133 motherboard. Glxgears was about 1300. I swapped the video cards putting my FX5200 in my crap box and it scored 1100.
but thats still 200fps more than my avg on my good box.
I get 2300 fps with XP 2600 and onboard GPU - something is mighty screwed up.If you are definite that your configurations are ok I'd try to use xfree instead or xorg.AFAIK Nvidia only supports xfree officially - shouldn't make a difference but I'd try it.Are you using any exotic CFLAGS?

Keep in mind that glxgears is-not-a-benchmark.It's basically just there to check if hardware acceleration is working.Although looking at my laptop with about 500 fps (Intel 'extreme' graphics) about 4x the speed with the athlon box looks about right.
