3D acceleration problems with GTS 250 on Fedora 12 x86_64
 
Hi all!

I have some troubles with my 3D acceleration of my Nvidia Card GeForce GTS 250.

My system is fedora 12 x86_64 (Kernel 2.6.32.11-99.fc12.x86_64) and I installed the Nvidia driver (driver version 195.36.15) like described in fedoraforum.org via rpmfusion.

After a fresh install of Fedora I installed wine and startet WoW. The game starts but I have massive graphical corruptions (so I cant see a thing on the display) and my screen flickers every few seconds. I also tried to activate Compiz, but my screen is flickering, my mouse is very slow and I canīt move the windows. My 3rd "test" was the game Glaxium, but the game crashed every time i started it.

I installed these nvidia packages:

nvidia-settings-1.0-3.4.fc12.x86_64
akmod-nvidia-195.36.15-1.fc12.x86_64
nvidia-xconfig-1.0-2.fc12.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-195.36.15-1.fc12.i686
kmod-nvidia-2.6.32.11-99.fc12.x86_64-195.36.15-1.fc12.2.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-195.36.15-1.fc12.x86_64

glxinfo | grep rendering says "direct rendering: yes"

[root@Melanie ~]# glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.4
server glx extensions:

OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL renderer string: GeForce GTS 250/PCI/SSE2
OpenGL version string: 3.2.0 NVIDIA 195.36.15
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.50 NVIDIA via Cg compiler

So everything looks fine for me. Nouveau driver is blacklisted in /etc/modprode.d/blacklist.conf and also in /etc/grub.conf with rdblacklist=nouveau.

I know glxgears isnīt a benchmark, but the output is really very bad:

27 frames in 5.8 seconds = 22.000 FPS
132 frames in 5.0 seconds = 26.174 FPS
59 frames in 6.3 seconds = 9.335 FPS
106 frames in 6.2 seconds = 16.969 FPS
45 frames in 5.9 seconds = 7.665 FPS
45 frames in 5.4 seconds = 8.371 FPS
41 frames in 5.0 seconds = 8.120 FPS

Do you have any ideas for me why I have these problems with 3D acceleration.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Dizzle7677!

As you can read in my post, I have problems with 3D acceleration also with Compiz and simple linux native games (Glaxium). I am not able to use Compiz because my screen is flickering every few seconds. So this is not a problem of wine.

Generate and attach a nvidia-bug-report.log file, this makes it easier to see what is going on.

(Run nvidia-bug-report.sh as root).

Hmm ... I can't see anything obviously wrong in your log.

Can you try

Code:

yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing update kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686
This should pull in the 195.36.24 driver.

Hi Dragoran!

I updated the driver.

After reboot the output of glxgears was fine. Then I activated Compiz to test, if 3D acceleration is ok. But Compiz crashed. After reboot I have the same problems as before.

Enclosed please find the new bug-report file.

So compiz did not crash but X, can you reproduce that?
I.e does starting compiz always cause X to crash for you?

Does disabling compiz fix your other problems?

No, I think I canīt reproduce this. When I active Compiz now my screen is flickering and after a few seconds I get the message if I would like to stay with this setting, or if I would like to go back to standard setting.

Unfortunately my problems persist, even with deactivated compiz.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Have you tried disabling the composite extension in your xorg.conf?

I remember disabling composite explicitly when I started using VDPAU.

I don't use Compiz or wine, but am running Fedora 12 x86_64 with manually installed 195.36.24 driver and all seems fine.

Hi kgow!

Thanks for your help. I disabled the composite extension, but with no luck. Still the same problems.

In the meantime I made a fresh install of Fedora 12. I only installed Opera and the nvidia drivers with rpmfusion.

I really have no idea, why I have these problems. :(

Well there is nothing that looks obviously wrong a few things you can try:

1. Pass iommu=soft to the kernel (should be fine on AMD systems though).
2. Try
Code:

echo >> options nvidia NVreg_EnableMSI=1 > /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf
(and reboot)
3. Try disabling cool n quite in the BIOS.
