Re: NVIDIA on openSUSE 12.1 problems
I've been having the same problem with an insanely slow KDE experience (chrome scrolls so slowly, it's barely usable etc).
However, I fiddled around a bit and I seemed to have solved the problem. I haven't figured out, if any of these measures was solely responsible for the increased performance, but here is what I did:
- uninstalled nouveau driver
- used nomodset kernel parameter on boot
Also, I installed razor-qt to exclude any memory issues from KDE 4.7 and it seems to work quite nicely.
I'm on a Dell Vostro 1500 using a Geforce 8600M on the binary drivers (which worked just fine using openSUSE 11.4).
If anyone is interested, I can go ahead and track down what exactly did the trick.
