Well, it won't help. I mean, usually, the installer offers to modify your xorg.conf to avoid certain obscure issues. It usually just removes that line I just said.

Did any of that help any, or is the FPS still low ?

No. We run nvidia installer after xorgsetup because we do xorgsetup when we install Slackware. Then we need to install nvidia. There is nvidia-xconfig if you want. No need to reinstall again.

I've downloaded this nvidia-xconfig but was weary to run it once there's no documentation about it. Not even a README.

Nvidia-xconfig does the same thing as xorgconfig does, but in nvidia'ish way (replaces driver with nvidia, sets some other options).

H_TeXMeX_H, I got a little improvement again... It's 2200-ish FPS. I'll be on my box later (about 3.5 hours from now) then I can get you more details... What you need?

Well, first, have you tried other version of the nvidia driver ? Do you get the same or better FPS with them ? I mean is this your first time installing these drivers ? Or have they worked better in the past, but now they don't work as well.

It is possible that glxgears is broken by the nvidia driver. But, usually this is only the case for ATI drivers. Has anyone heard of nvidia drivers messing up glxgears ? They never did for me.

I'll try a previous driver when I'm at my box. I'll let you guys know the result.

Just another question... I've been using this driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run because I'm running Slackware 11. Am I doing the right thing? Or should use this one NVIDIA-Linux-ia64-1.0-5336-pkg1.run? Or even this one NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9755-pkg2.run?

No, x86_64 is for 64-bit architecture ... if you were running a 64-bit OS (like Slamd64) on a 64-bit processor, like an AMD.

The version of the driver is what matters. The '1.0-9755'.

I'm updating my Slackware 9 system with modular xorg 7.1, but I don't know where to find a dri module for the Xorg server's Radeon video driver. The driver works, but complains about a missing module /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/radeon_dri.so. Anyone know where I can find one?

If it were related to kernel headers, it wouldn't compile at all. Besides, there may be issues if you install the 2.6.x headers, so I wouldn't. (of course, you could try)

Have you tried other driver versions. Don't try every version (it takes too long), just either the latest or the Legacy. I have to use the Legacy 9### drivers, because the newest ones don't support my card.

Still no dri module, but now the dri support seems to be included in the driver radeon_drv.so.

It should be there in your system: usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri

H_TeXMeX_H, I haven't tried legacy drivers yet. Will do it tonight!

Should I expect better 3D performance in Slamd64?

Will post again later today!
