X under Fedora Core 3 is slow


hi people


i use fedora 3 and i have a tft display with 1280x1024 resolution.

i have this graphic card: NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX with 32 MB ram

i don't use my pc for gaiming, i have kde 3.4 running but i allways have some problems, because the X server needs 100% of the cpu and the system stops for 1-2 seconds. the screen freezes. it is very nasty...

is it because i have too much less video RAM? or is it ok?

how can i change this?

if i have top running o na console, i see this very oft:
5120 root 16 0 82272 26m 3432 R 60.9 5.3 19:48.17 X

at the time X has 100% usage ( i guess) my display freezes, so that i can't see it on the console where top is running


thankx for you tips

I dont seem to find any reason for your display problems. However, ensure that you have installed the appropriate device driver for you NVidia GeForce card and it was correctly detected during setup. Try checking it with knoppix 3.7 availabe at www.knopper.net and checking your display.

If you are experiencing same problems, there might be a possibility, (if u are having problems in windows, if u have one) that there is something wrong with the card or the transmission through the wire.

Try finding posts related to this topic, because there are many issues in the past regarding drivers for Nvidia.

You might receive a solution very quickly..GO ahead!
