nvidia seems to be working worse after update
 
After I've updated to Kubuntu Linux 8.10 some problems appeared. I couldn't get my X11 running with nvidia. After some searching my Xorg with nvidia as driver is working with DMKS.

This is my card:

1 root@ubuntux $ lspci | grep nVidia
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G73 [GeForce 7600 GS] (rev a2)
Here you see my dkms status:

4 root@ubuntux $ dkms status
nvidia, 177.82, 2.6.27-9-generic, i686: install
The problem is that my FPS seems to be much lower than before. Before my update I was able to manage an average FPS of 200 in a game, now it's only around 70. Here you see the outpout of the glxgears command:

Quote:

1 pieterjan@ubuntux $ glxgears
3566 frames in 5.0 seconds = 711.667 FPS
5111 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1022.199 FPS
3936 frames in 5.0 seconds = 784.675 FPS

For those who would like to see my xorg.conf:

Anyone with suggestions?

When I start an application or when I click on the start button I always notice some mysterious and unclear stripes during a very little time.
