Re: 2D refresh (redraw?) problems - Fedora 10 x86_64 + 9800GT + 180.22
That is correct, after running a diff on all of the configuration files I messed with, I disabled sync to vblank in my .nvidia-settings-rc and everything went back to "normal". Under which circumstances would I need to have it enabled?
Regarding glxgears, a few years back, a coworker of mine who worked on simulations on the SGI platform pointed to the app as a means to roughly diagnose potential rendering problems. I am not a gamer (except for the occasional round of gnome mines), so for me the best indication that my graphics subsystem is set up OK is the output of glxinfo and glxgears.
