Help needed.
 
I originally posted this in the wrong forum. Sorry 'bout that.

Here's my problem:

After installing the latest driver release for my Geforce3 ti500 and editing my XF86Config file, everything initially seemed O.K.

I installed UT2003 and wanted to see how fast it smoked with this fresh linux install 'cause I'm a n00b to linux and was pretty excited. Well, in the terminal, when I launch the game, I get the error: Xlib: extension "Xig-Sundry-nonstandard" missing on display ":0.0".

The game doesn't crash or anything, it's just unplayably slow. Here is my xf86config file:

# XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "DevInputMice" "AlwaysCore"

Section "Files"
# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the

# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"

# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"

# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

Thank you in advance for your help.

from the readme

You should also remove the following lines:

Load "dri"

Thanks for the help red, but the problem is persistant after removing that line. When I run glxgears, I get an average of 5.0fps...no errors in my log file but there are warnings about resolution. Is the log necessary to include, if so, it's still attached to the other thread: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/sho...?threadid=23982

I appreciate the help!!

Looks like your old thread got dumped. What's the output of 'glxinfo'?

Well, I decided to start over from scratch. It was easy because I had an old GeForce2 that doesnt use glx (well, I think it doesn't ;) ). Anyway, I switched cards and when I booted with the Gf2, it installed the linux default nvidia drivers which replaced the ones that I had screwed up. I then switched them back, and it detected the switch, installed the default drivers, etc...

I re-downloaded the driver .run file and used what I've learned when I was screwing it up to exit "x" by using the terminal, then did the "sh" thingy, (can you tell I'm a n00b to linux) typed in "startx" and edited the XF86Config file per the readme. I then restarted the computer and viola! glxgears shows almost 6000 fps. A nice improvement from 5!!

Thanks nvidia for making linux drivers. It's a pain in the glxgears(or ass whichever you prefer) when hardware manufacturers don't support their own hardware with linux drivers.

Thanks everyone that helped out, I really appreciate it.


If you're a n00b to linux like me, don't get all bent out of shape if it doesnt work right away, eventually you will get it, and all of your hard work will prove valuable and you will appreciate it more. Don't give up! ;)
