Annoying syncing problem during video playback
 
I can see annoying syncing errors during video playback or during fast animation on the desktop. I have discovered from the web that enabling vblank-feature to display driver can fix it. My bad i'm using Xgl and compiz so i cannot use nvidia-settings -tool to enable vblank-feature. Is there any method for me to enable vblank-feature?

Why can't you use nvidia-settings?
It can even work in commandline mode... (scripts)

I have NX7950GT and i'm using openSUSE 10.2 with Xgl+Compiz


nvidia-settings --assign="SyncToVBlank=1"

ERROR: NV-CONTROL extension not found on this Display.
ERROR: Unable to determine number of NVIDIA GPUs on ':0.0'.

ERROR: Unable to determine number of NVIDIA VCSCs on ':0.0'.
ERROR: Invalid X Screen 0 specified in assignment 'SyncToVBlank=1' (NV-CONTROL

Am i doing something wrong?

I had discovered that Xgl was the reason for my video/desktop syncing problems. Now I'm using compiz/beryl with pale xorg with perfect picture quality.
