Here's my XF86Config (just the important bits i think & edited):
Option "omit xfree86-dga"
Identifier "Nvidia GeForce"
Option "NoLogo" "1"
Option "CursorShadow" "1"
Option "NvAGP" "0"
I'm installing Q2 from CD, then working with;
I remove the following files from the directory;
libMesaGL.so.2.6 (and its two links)
(i just copy /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.0.5336 into q2's directory and run q2 with it as the gl_driver).
q2 isn't alone in its slowness, euphoriaGL screensaver has pauses in it.
i found this link last night;
and did $ cat /proc/interrupts
i got the following (again edited);
there was no entry for a nvidia device as shown in the page i linked, which is maybe worrying. i made sure my bios was assigning an IRQ to PCI & that PnP Aware OS was disabled (i got a kernel panic when i tried to install the nvidia driver without 'IRQ Assigned to PCI' enabled in the BIOS), i tried to reinstall them since X didnt load under this setting.
I also did "$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status" but got no such directory or filename. note there was no "drivers" directory, only "driver".
To disable AGP further i commented-out the modprobe (agpgart or something) line for it in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules.
I think i'll go play with the PCI latency in the BIOS, setpci & lspci -v...
Any other suggestions?
heh, & i really like this little smiley;
