Unhappy 6106 slow on Fedora Core 2

Tried the 6106 drivers on FC2 with the 2.6.6-435 kernel.
Glxgears can only manage about 36 frames per second.
It is much much faster than that on Core 1.
Have Via chipset and Geforce 2 400MX.

Not sure why...I am running FC2 with 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 and I get a little over 1200 FPS running glxgears with an MSI FX5200.

Speed is fine for me on FC2 - around 4700 FPS in glxgears (GeForce 4 Ti4600, P4 3.1 GHz).

36 FPS sounds like hardware rendering isn't working - run glxinfo | less and see if your OpenGL vendor is NVIDIA.

Default Re: 6106 slow on Fedora Core 2

glxinfo says that the NVIDIA driver is running (rather than sw 3D).

I've also just noticed that my post was ambiguous. What I meant was that I get much better performance on FC1 than on FC2.

The processor is an Athlon XP2000.

Could it be a bug in the installer?

Question Re: 6106 slow on Fedora Core 2

Here's the speed comparison:

Under FC2, glxgears only manages 38 FPS, or 20 in full screen mode.
Under FC1, glxgears flies along at 438FPS.

Is anyone able to look at this, please?
