78 frames in 5.0 seconds = 15.600 FPS
79 frames in 5.0 seconds = 15.800 FPS
77 frames in 5.0 seconds = 15.400 FPS
66 frames in 5.0 seconds = 13.200 FPS
77 frames in 5.0 seconds = 15.400 FPS
...

OS = Fedora Core 1
Video Card = Geforce 4 MX440
nVidia driver = NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run
kernel = 2.4.22-1.2149.nptl

Did you install the driver using the GCC 3.2 compiler? Your kernel is compiled with a diffferent version compiler (specific to Fedora) than your standard programs. You need to install with:
export CC=gcc32
sh ./NVIDIA.......run

You must have the gcc32 package installed, so check for it with:
rpm -q gcc32

It is also beneficial to remove the Mesa libGL files, since these are replaced by the nvidia installer (but sometimes the linking doesn't occur right; this leaves you with poor performance on the Mesa libs rather than the nvidia libs). If you remove the rpm, you may have to deal with other rpms that 'depend' on Mesa, but you'll have 3d running at least.

rpm -e --nodeps XFree86-Mesa-libGL
