Default export __GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK=1 ?

im trying various things to get my GF4MX440 PCI to work, and i've found something i'd like to try; adding the following line to... some file somewhere...
"export __GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK=1"
web pages mention /etc/bash, but its an executable, not plain text. how do i do this?

thanks.

You can for example add it to your .bashrc in your home directory or to /etc/profile

thanks. i was just needing to know that whilst trying to get my gf4mx440 PCI to stop stuttering. it brought the frame rate down to 80 ish (monitor refresh = 85hz), but i am still getting pauses in the glxgears animation.

If you're seeing stuttering even at 85fps, then there's something wrong. What's the output of 'glxinfo'?

Default Re: export __GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK=1 ?

i've attached a file with a bunch of info, including system specs, notes and the following:
cat /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0
glxinfo
cat /proc/interrupts
lspci -v
xf86config

Andy, is there a general problem with PCI cards or is it just my system, i've heard of a few people with PCI card who are struggling. are the drivers aimed at AGP cards?
