Default Re: glxgears rates low, but games play correctly ?!!

Hi thanks for all.

I have noticed de hard disk problem before. It began when I activated the NVIDIA ide controller in the kernel.

Althought I have all this ugly error messages my hard disk performance is better than when I haven't NVIDIA ide controller.

I think only DMA for hda is disabled, hdb show all this errors only at the first moments of my system start, after a few seconds it dont show again.

And, yes, I think the problem is with glxgears, Kotor2 runs really smooth

Thanks again.

This may not be it for you guys, but i've noticed that when i leave Folding@Home running I get about 300 FPS on glxgears where i get 9000 FPS with it closed. Could you guys be running something CPU intensive in the background?

Hi again,

I think I have reached the top FPS I can get for myself.

I changed the ide cable and the disk problem disapear (thanks energyman).

Glxgears actually give me 844 FPS, I did the following things to improve performance (something of this may be helpfull for you acp):

- I disabled AGPART from my kernel.
- I activated "Accel" in my Xconf file.
- I have installed the lastest drivers -7167- (I think this give me the better perfomance improvement).

Compholio, I have looked if something is running in background but "top" give me an 5% CPU usage and almost no disk usage, so I think this isn't the problem.

I attach my last nvidia-bug-report. If somenone have an idea of what it's wrong please tell me.

Thanks for all guys.

Why glxgears is useless:
Intel x86 2.5Ghz + GForce 4200 Ti: 4800fps
AMD x86_64 3500+ (2,2Ghz) + GeForce 6600FX: 1600fps

I have to downgrade my drivers to 6229, because Kotor2 crashed with the new drivers.

Sadly my glxgears FPS also down to 630...

I hope Nvidia guys fix problems with the new drivers soon.
