Actually, even though i replied to you, my comments were not directed towards you...


What motherboard is it on, what cpu, or your computername if you bought a pre built...

I have a feeling there are incompabilites with Nvidias drivers drivers and your chipset, it happens A LOT, of course, i could be wrong, i was once before... (no, you won't get pregnant* ;-)

Well, i seen no incompabilities in that, hmmmm... Actually, i have a customer that has an almost identical setup...

I have got to test this out, be patiant for a day or two and i'll come back with results...

I assume you have tried the obvious things like BIOS upgrades for both the MB and the Card...

Gonna check it out, will be back soon with results...

If you are going to be involved in the computer business, you need to know these things...

I know it is scary, believe me, when i did it 10 years ago on my fathers system, it WAS scary, he would have spanked my butt with a barn if i would have failed...

Not to worry, just download the files and put them on a boot floppy, (follow the instructions, reboot and let the floppy upgrade the computer...

Unless you get a sudden power surge it will be ok... i would use the regular format option of the diskette though, sure, it will take a few minutes, but you just do it once...

If you need a further explanation or completed work... my e-mail is snap.it@telia.com...

I updated the MB BIOS , but no improvements ...

i downloaded the UT2003 demo , and i want to try some benchmarks , but i can't get any results because they all stop after a while with this error:

Xlib: extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".


i can actually play the game at ~30 fps with all normal settings 800x600 32bit

One more thing that could increase the fps rate
You can enable the Fast Writes and SBA for the nvidia drivers
in the file /etc/modules.conf
After the line with "alias char-major-195 nvidia"
have added this line
options nvidia NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1
and the 2d peformance screams now on par with a radeon9000 (no more black rectangles when mooving mozillla/gnome console window )
On the 3d performance increased but here need to do some tests ...

In your case i think should write in /etc/modules.conf

options nvidia NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=1 NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1

Here is the full article about Fast Writes and SBA in linux http://www.brandonhutchinson.com/NVI...Hat_Linux.html

I have the same Problem here:

A7N8X, AMD Athlon 2100+, 1GB RAM, GFX 5200 128MB/128bit
Fedora Core 1
nvidia driver 4493 and 4620beta
glxgears: around 500FPS
Quake3 1.32, demo 4, 1280x1024/32bit/tril: 50FPS

It felt somehow slow, so I tested it on my home System:

A7A266, AMD Athlon 1700+, 1GB RAM, GFX 5200 128MB/128bit
RedHat 9
nvidia driver 4493 and 4620beta
glxgears: around 1800FPS
Quake3 1.32, demo 4, 1280x1024/32bit/tril: 80FPS

That was a bit better. But still....So I booted My Fedora on
a third system:
A7V8X, AMD Athlon 2100+, 512MB RAM, GF4 MX440 64MB/
Fedora Core 1
nvidia driver 4620beta
glxgears: around 2000FPS
Quake3 1.32, demo 4, 1280x1024/32bit/tril: 95FPS ?:-)

Since the card is a replacement for the MX series, I
expected somehow the same performance.
