Laggy video on GeForce 3 Ti200 a bummer


I recently replaced Yoper V2 with Slackware 10.0, and I very much prefer Slack to anything I've used so far (MDK, Yop, RH9). One problem I am having is with my video, as it tends to lag when it does a lot (laggy when playing a video file fullscreen, or a fullscreen Konsole doing a compile). I have the latest NVIDIA drivers, built to my kernel by the installer. I have not had the same problem in any other distro, or in M$. It isn't the biggest deal, but it's a drag to have a great distro like this have crappy video (as a lot of my time is watching stuff on my comp). Suggestions?

I have tried the latest driver release (1.0-6629) as well as 1.0-4496, 5336, and 6111. The problem persists. It occurs to me that the problem is therefore not a problem with the drivers, though I haven't an idea as to where to start now.

Are you sure that you have AGP properly compiled into the kernel, with the correct chipset etc. I had a similar problem trying to get DRM running with my ATI Radeon M9. Also, do you have DMA enabled for your drives?
