I run Linux games on an old IBM thinkpad. Some games run faster if I boot into a light window manager like Fluxbox so more system resources are available for the game.

What is you system specs? what is you desktop environment? What is your screen resolution?

xorg.conf should contain nvidia as the driver for your video card, not nv
Your card is supported using the nvidia-legacy drivers.

I don't have a clue what you are referring to by extensions in xorg.conf

I've checked xorg now and there is "nvidia" not "nv".
Also, in Section "Module" -
Load "glx"
Load "dri"
But still fps are too slow.

You should NOT be loading dri, there is no use for it. It should be more like:

Code:
Section "Module"
    Load           "dbe"
    Load           "extmod"
    Load           "type1"
    Load           "freetype"
    Load           "glx"
EndSection
If you're using the nvidia driver, why not use 'nvidia-settings' to configure it, then save changes to 'xorg.conf'.

There's something about it here:
http://livna.org/pipermail/freeworld...er/000825.html

The best thing to do is use 'nvidia-settings' to configure it. Also, what kind of FPS are you getting ? I guess with glxgears, even tho it's not a benchmark. If you benchmarked it with something like Quake 2 or 3, that would be better.

I mean fast, with sufficient fps.
