I recently built and installed the Detonator 41.91 driver for Linux on Red Hat 8.0 (kernel 2.4.18-19.8.0) and it runs a TON slower than the previous version (31.23) The performance was completely unacceptable for a powerful card like the GeForce. I have since gone back to 31.23, but is anyone aware of configuration changes that could be made to make 41.91 perform as it should, or any other work-arounds?

Danger, danger, Will Robinson! Wrong forum alert!

There be 2 Linux forums here where you should ask your questions.

Short answer.. you cannot speed up the 41.91 2d render performance. Especially not on RH 8.0. The drivers need fixed, wait or suffer like me just cause you like new. :afro:

So I noticed. I read up on the Linux 41.91, tried all the tricks and came to the same end as everyone else. Went back to 31.23. Guess we'll just have to wait for the next one.
