Slow Redrawing


Im using simply mepis 6.0 rc3. During use the redrawing on the desktop is really slow. My system isnt that slow either (athlon 64 3200 @ 2.4ghz + Asus v9999 gfx).

How can I caus the redrawing to speed up? Windows runs faster than this linux desktop currently.

A quick Google search indicates that the Asus V9999 is nvidia based. Have you installed the nvidia drivers or are you just using the generic nvidia driver. If the latter is the case that is probably the reason.

Simply mepis OS center has a facility to install the nvidia drivers so they should be installed on my system. Is there a chance that these drivers maybe out of date?

You should establish whether the nvidia drivers are installed and actually running from the XFree or XOrg log files. If they are, determine what version is running and then check this against the support at nvidia.

Go to /var/log as root and look for either XFree....log or XOrg..log and check the contents of the log file. To find out which is operational from a consol as root do ls /var/log/X* to list the type and to look at the contents do cat /var/log/X<file_name>.log | more.
