Re: GF8200 / Poor 2D performance / ETA of fix?
zim2dive: the only particularity in my config is Composite disabled, and the PixmapCache parameter for nvidia-settings. FYI, I don't run a login manager, and I put the nvidia-settings command in my ~/.xinitrc, so that it runs *immediately* after Xorg starts.
Beyond that, again, you're only talking about Flash, not 2D performance in general. It's a very specific problem. And the reason I'm not upset about it, is that flash performance under linux has always sucked. Hell, Adobe even made us wait for over two years before they released a 64-bit plugin.
NVIDIA isn't blameless, but you guys are really exagerating. Like I said, overall 2D performance is good on my setup. There's already a thread about flash performance, be specific and don't call it ALL crap when that's simply not true.
