GF 4000MX and OpenGL: VERY slow
 
Hey,

I'm on an Athlon XP 2100+, 768mb DDR2100, and a Geforce 6000 MX AGP 128mb. Latest nvidia drivers (7676), latest xorg (6.8.2), etc. glxgears gets ~840fps, Enemy Territory and StepMania get <10fps, and mplayer is too slow if it uses -vo gl or gl2. I'm not even going to bother trying HL2.

Oh, and if it helps, I had this same problem with my old GF4 MX420... Didn't bother trying to fix it then, but now that I have a better card, I thought I may as well put it to work.

I was told by someone on IRC to downgrade drivers to 6629, but I couldn't get it installed on 2.6.12-ARCH/gcc 4.2 either with Arch Linux's package or the official installer... Either my kernel or gcc version must be messing it up. I don't know what else to do, so I'd really appreciate it if someone could give me a suggestion or two on how to do anything with OGL.

I uploaded nvidia-bug-report.log to http://chaoticevil.ca/nvidia-bug-report.log.txt -- it has a lot more detailed information.

Thanks,

FlatFace,
If you disable "AllowGLXWithComposite" and the Compositor altogether, does that have any positive impact?

Thanks,
Lonni

Going from an MX420 to an MX4000 isn't an upgrade at all, more of a lateral move. Had you gone from an MX420 to a GeForce FX or greater, then that would be cause for concern.

Nope, not at all. I only had those on for testing earlier, anyway. Right now I have all composite stuff commented out.

I'm not a speed freak. I just want to play some games, and even with the old card, in Windows it ran stuff just fine. Something is obviously wrong here.

FlatFace,
What kind of motherboard are you using? Have you verified that you have the most recent BIOS applied? Do you have any spare partitions or disks where you could test out a different distribution just to verify that this isn't something specific to Arch Linux?

thanks,
Lonni

Could you check the output of glxinfo? Post it here, there's a chance that direct rendering isn't enabled in there.

That's the first thing I checked.

[flatface@envy ~]$ glxinfo |grep direct
direct rendering: Yes
