I went ahead and installed the linux-headers and ran the install again and got farther this time...baby steps I guess.

The Kernal starts to build then errors out and says to see the nvidia-installer.log for details. I copied this log here...

I talked to a guy on the nvidia Linux forum and he told me to use the 1.0-9755 driver. I tried that AND IT WORKS!!!!!

For anyone asking, the correct driver is this one for the GeForce 6100

I know...but several others have said other drivers, so I had no idea which one was right.

I'm always right! Why, one time I thought I was wrong, but I turned out to be mistaken.

In any event, you're up and running now and that is what really matters.

The 1.0-9755 driver is now included as nvidia-glx-new. nvidia-glx and nvidia-glx-legacy remain as before 9755 came out.

Not according to Nvidia...they say to make sure the nvidia-glx package has been uninstalled with the --purge option and the file /etc/init.d/nvidia-glx does not exist.

Once you've installed the binary driver from the nvidia site you broken the package manager's awareness of what's installed. That is why you have to perform steps manually. nvidia-glx-new is included in the latest update of Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty. I may not be found in the 6.10 your member panel identifies.

With the default window size I got about 1,350 fps with an FX5200. However this is very dependent on the size of the window. By making the window about 1x1 inch on a 1440x900 19" wise screen my number jumped to 8,500 fps. Maximizing the screen it dropped to 120 fps. At default window size covered by another window it went up to 3,850 fps.

Thankyou Fragos , but I was wondering abt kc5hwb. Anyway isnt the FX5200 an older model than the 6100 ? If that's the case then something wierd is going on because I'm only getting half your FPS - about 720. This is despite having direct rendering and stuff.

Is this FPS normal on my card? I am using FC6 on an AMD 3600+, with Nvidia 6100 integrated GPU.

Thanx

glxgears isn't a scientific measurement. As you can see from what I provided there's a lot of variability on a single system. I see your video is on the mobo. 1st the memory used by the video is shared with the AMD. A BIOS parameter is available to change the amount allocated. Default may be less than the 128MB on my card. My card is 8X AGP which is faster than PCI which may be how your video chipset is interfaced. What else is running on the machine will also slow down the reported frame rate. For example if I watch TV in a window using my tuner card the frame rate will also slow down. I'm running 24 bit color depth, 32 would slow things down. Your CPU is faster than mine, a Sempron +2800. Don't let the frame rate set your performance expectations. If you're a gamer and the game performance lags you can always buy an add-on video card but be sure it matches the video slot your mobo requires, probably PCI-Express but perhaps AGP.
