Mandrake 10, kernel 2.6.0, 5336, runs slow & locks up
 
Hi, I have Mandrake 10. After I install the 5336 driver, KDE loads and runs very slowly for anywhere from 1 second, to 1 minute, and then locks up. The installer could not find a pre-compiled module for my kernel, so it compiled one for me.

Specs:
card:-------------------------nVidia GeForce2 MX/MX 400
Driver:----------------------5336
Mandrake:-----------------10
kernel:----------------------2.6.0
Motherboard:-------------Dell A02
Processor:------------------P3, 700mhz

I'd post the other useful info, but the driver is not currently installed. I just got my wacom tablet working and if I had installed the driver before posting this, I wouldn't be able to use it and the GIMP for a while. This is the problem I had when I installed the driver a while back. Since then I have reinstalled Mandrake 10. Running the uninstall command is not enough because two files are modified by the installer and not set back to their original state. These files are libGL.so.1 and libGLcore.so.1 (I think). At the time I did not have internet access so doing a clean install was the easiest option.

Even though I have not provided all the approiate trouble-shooting info, I was hoping to at least get some suggestions as to what the problem might be. If the driver does not work properly this time, then I will post the rest of the data.

Thank you.

Tune NvAGP - see /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README

Your kernel is old btw. Upgrade to be faster, more stable and more secure.

If I do that, then won't I have this problem?

Also, I don't have the directory /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0. I did --extract-only thinking it would be placed there, but it wasn't. Are you refering me to the online README? I will search it now for Tune NvAGP.

I installed the 5336 driver and used the
Option "NvAGP" "0"
to disable AGP, and same as before when I tried this, my computer still runs excruciatingly slow, and then locks up. bty, when it locks up, the mouse cursor still responds to movement. Just thought I'd add that fyi. I am using the links text web browser right now. I will post my XF86Config-4 and XFree86.0.log files at the following addresses. thx.

There is a patch which lets you choose 8k stacks. Speaking for myself I would put security ahead of performance... you are free to choose... I should have mentioned those stacks tho. Good point.

If you --extract-only, the readme I refer to is in ./usr/share/doc.

No luck with NvAGP "1"?
