Default 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.


Cheers,
Chris
