Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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'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?
could it be something related to kernel-headers? mine points to kernel-2.4.33. Slackware bare.i installation...
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.
Thanks for the reference, but my problem is that there just is no dri module there to be loaded in the pre-built versions of Xorg 7.1 that I've found. No radeon_dri.so was built. I ran across a 6.6.3 version of the free ati video driver, which I think is from Xorg 7.2, and compiled it. Still no dri module, but now the dri support seems to be included in the driver radeon_drv.so.
