Default 173.08 Report

With 169.12 I've got ~ 9600FPS in glxgears, in 173.08 - ~7000 FPS, I think it is because someone changed "Disable use of advanced CPU instruction sets" to read-only and to "1" state.
Steam apps still not working, getting crashes with:
X Error of failed request: GLXBadDrawable
Major opcode of failed request: 143 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
Serial number of failed request: 129238
Current serial number in output stream: 129238

System is FreeBSD-7.0, vcard is 8600GT, xorg.conf opts:
Option "Coolbits" "1"
Option "NoRenderExtension" "False"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
Option "DamageEvents" "True"
Option "TripleBuffer" "True"
Option "BackingStore" "True"
Option "RandRRotation" "True"
Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "True"

Section "Extensions"
Option "RENDER" "Enable"
Option "Composite" "Enable"

@RussianE39: `glxgears` is not a benchmark, it can't be used to accurately judge performance; as to the "Disable use of advanced CPU instruction sets" option, 173.08 actually always uses SSE, etc..

Please check if http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...80#post1619780 resolves the GLXBadDrawable problem.

Unhappy Re: 173.08 Report

Just tried the above. Still no change

Code:
> sysctl -a | grep nvidia
hw.nvidia.version: NVIDIA UNIX x86 Kernel Module  173.08  Tue Apr  1 23:47:20 PST 2008

> sysctl -a | grep shm
kern.ipc.shmseg: 512

> wine --version
wine-0.9.59

>wine Steam.exe
X Error of failed request:  GLXBadDrawable
  Major opcode of failed request:  142 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)

Found that bug on wine's AppDB, it's a pity that no developers replied...

Default Re: 173.08 Report

I was able to reproduce the problem on PC-BSD 1.5 (FreeBSD 6.3) today and found that X is running out of two different IPC resources; I was able to run `glxgears` and steam at the same time after adding these lines to /boot/loader.conf:
kern.ipc.shmseg=1024
kern.ipc.shmmni=1024
