Default having a horrible problem getting 3d acceleration to work

hi,

i have a geforce fx 5600, and im running red hat 9. i have installed the current driver from the nvidia web page for it and the nforce driver for the chipset. but i cant get it to configure right and it wont allow me to turn on hardware 3d acceleration. if anyone has any tips hook me up. thanks

billy

You do not actually configure the use of hardware 3D acceleration through the redhat-gui tool as you might think. Have you read the driver readme? Have you modified the config file for X11?

How did you end up getting it fixed? I'm pretty sure I've done everything that the readme said regarding the modifications to the X config file. However I still cannot seem to get 3D acceleration to work.

Fullscreen glsgears is only producing around 530fps.

I even saw this in my log files

Fullscreen glxgears at 500+ seems like its doing alright to me. I run roughly 260fps fullscreen, and average 5000-6000fps at the default opening resolution (mine is very variable since I've never tested max speed for it with the system running minimal extras)

Well at the default opening res for me it runs at around 2900fps and the cpu usage goes to 100% which is why I tend to think that the glx modules aren't really working well

High cpu usage is normal and expected, your framerate is partially controlled / limited by cpu and bus bottlenecks.
