For example:
Code:
5560 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1112.000 FPS
6710 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1342.000 FPS
5823 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1164.600 FPS
5239 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1047.800 FPS
6782 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1356.400 FPS
6805 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1361.000 FPS
15210 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3042.000 FPS
21144 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4228.800 FPS
21160 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4232.000 FPS
10658 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2131.600 FPS
Can you tell when I minimized it?

GeForce 4 DDR 128MB MMX/SSE w TV Out (what a title )
Asus A7M266 DDR Mobo
AMD T-bird 900mhz (yeah I know, but it works )
640MB DDR PC2100 RAM
..and a lot of other stuff that probably doesn't effect the glxgears fps

Cool

tI have a problem right now (besides the fact that I own a 750MHz Duron with a GeForce 2MX 32MB - give me some money and I will upgrade it) :
My X after a few hours of working fine just starts to flicker. My screen goes blank and if I press a key or move
mouse it comes back to normal,but only for a second and then geos back to black. What could this be?
Right now I am doing an upgrade (restricted connection/read slow) and I takes forever so I can't startx again(using gnome-apt). And I saw a few days ago a thread about getting packages from the testing distro with some kind of parameters so that apt-get(s) preferablly packs from the stable realease. Anyone knows something about this?

you must adjust your sources list in /etc/apt/sources.list

To include the release you want (hint copy the one's you have and replace stable with testing, or unstable.)

Then goto /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/70debconf and add the line

APT::Default-Release "stable";

Then when you want a package from the other realse type

apt-get -t testing install thepackage

Sounds like overheating. Is it summer where you are? I had one of those cards and you could fry a (small) egg on it after a few hours.

Unhappy overheating?!?!?

@#$@$#@@#$$@ !!!!

The damn cooler always makes problems!! Doesn't start always. I tried to put some oil there so it would work fine, but no luck.
I have to kick-start it by hand sometimes.

I will look into it if it does it again.

I made an upgrade to Sarge and I like Gnome 2, although it had some problems in converting the config files.

Anyone, help.
I will post here the error messages I get once I get home.
