Ok. Try this:
Code:
cd /usr/X11R6/bin
ldd glxgears
Post the table.

Interesting what these libXxf86vm.so.1 and libnvidia-tls.so.1 do. Maybe new driver somehow differently responds to glxgears, which decreases performance. It's strange that fx5500 gives such low fps.
What kernel and xorg are you using?
Maybe somebody also uses this card and could give reply? Do you get Direct Rendering now?

I wouldn't trust NvAGP. Turn it off right after you build AGPGART as a module. I have GeForce4 Ti 4600 with 1.0-9631 drivers and using AGPGART, and I get:

Code:
24076 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4815.046 FPS
24282 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4856.320 FPS
24299 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4859.740 FPS
24179 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4834.867 FPS
You should be getting at least 4000 FPS I think.

NvAGP is only for Nvidia chipset motherboards, where the Nvidia chipset is controlling the AGP slot.

Otherwise, use what the kernel wants you to use

EDIT: I started a new thread about this, as 3D acceleration isn't the issue.

I did some searching on ATI Big Desktop and got very little, so I thought I'd pose my issues here. I had gotten the free radeon driver to work for me, including MergedFB with acceleration et al. However, Unreal Tournament 2004 (as well as other modern games, as far as I can tell) uses S3 Texture Compression, which is only in the proprietary driver. I was noticing performance issues which I attributed to this fact, so now I'm trying to get where I was with fglrx.

With clone mode (i.e. nothing special, but with both monitors plugged in) UT2004 works fine. Under Big Desktop, however, input seems sluggish. In the menus, the mouse has about a half second delay in all movements. In game, about half the time any keyboard/mouse input has a similar delay. Rendering seems to be OK. I really don't want to restart X under a different configuration just to run games (note I haven't tried any other than UT2004). Is this a known issue? When running the full-screen game, even under Big Desktop it goes into clone mode. The sluggishness is apparent in windowed mode as well.

My other issue is that my monitors are switched. My DVI output is treated as secondary, and VGA is primary. Once I've started X I can run aticonfig --swap-monitor and everything's fine, but the setting doesn't stick (it doesn't add anything to xorg.conf like many of the aticonfig options do). Other than physically switching my monitors (I'd rather not, as I'd like my DVI to be primary) or putting the command in .xinitrc or something, is there a way to make the outputs stay swapped?

Radeon 9200 128MB DVI+VGA
Slackware 11.0
Kernel 2.6.17.13 (modified huge26)
fglrx 8.28.8

Ok, I've (re)compiled the kernel-2.6.20 and started X (X11R6.9.x) and got these FPS:
Code:
gtl@omicron:~$ glxgears
10624 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2124.761 FPS
11192 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2238.204 FPS
11194 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2238.731 FPS
11174 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2234.653 FPS
11187 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2237.221 FPS
10646 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2129.070 FPS
gtl@omicron:~$
AGPGART is now built as module:

gustaveiras, did you disable NvAGP?
do you get DRI now?

NvAGP is commented out in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

and glxinfo gives me this:
Code:
glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.4

and a lot more!

# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:

#
#    Option     "XkbLayout"     "de"
#    Option     "XkbVariant"    "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
#
#    Option     "XkbOptions"    "ctrl:swapcaps"
# These are the default XKB settings for X.Org

First, get rid of this
Code:
VideoRam    262144
no need for it.

Also, these two seem awfully high
Code:
    HorizSync       30.0 - 71.0
    VertRefresh     50.0 - 160.0
I would run 'xorgsetup' and let it autodetect these, then change the driver to 'nvidia' when it's done.

If not, then typical values are:
Code:
    HorizSync       28.0 - 65.0
    VertRefresh     57.0 - 63.0
So at least lower that VertRefresh max from 160 to 70 or so.

I just restarted X after killing it and running
Code:
# xorgsetup
Screen came up at 1024x768 (I was using 1280x1024) I opened a terminal and this came out:
Code:
gtl@omicron:~$ glxgears
10651 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2130.123 FPS
11253 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2250.599 FPS
11244 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2248.795 FPS
12721 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2544.116 FPS

17515 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3502.953 FPS
17640 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3527.911 FPS
17634 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3526.630 FPS
17296 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3459.045 FPS

25764 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5152.654 FPS
28744 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5748.757 FPS
28741 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5748.162 FPS
28742 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5748.308 FPS

gtl@omicron:~$
The first four calculations of glxgears were made with the pop-up gear animation on top of the Konsole (I use KDE 3.5.6). The second four FPS group took place when the gear animation was half covered by Konsole and the third group, the 5k+s, happened with the animation minimized.

I understand there should be some difference, but a question comes to mind: what are you running to get the numbers you get? Here I just started X after xorgsetup. 3D accel is worth if you really see a result!

On a side note, I always thought those gears spinning faster. Maybe I just shoot a little video, post it at Youtube and place the link here!

Anyway, looking foward for comments on those figures, I'm off to fix screen size!

Back with a sad constation I need to change my monitor... Perhaps a 19" LCD... just dreaming!!

Well, you should not resize that glxgears window, just drag it to a place where it is not covered by anything. I mean, basically it tests 3D rendering to the screen. If it is covered or resized, it won't give accurate data.

Also, if you ran 'xorgsetup', remove the line that says something like:
Code:
BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
The nvidia installer usually removes this line, because it may cause issues.

Line removed!

I did not run the nvidia installer after running xorgsetup. Should I do so?
