Unhappy Worse Performance?

hi there,
i have installed the latest LINUX display-drivers (53.28). now my system runs MUCH slower than it has done before with the standard installed drivers for RedHat 9.0.

is there a trick?
i cant even play "Tux Racer"!

Did you have nVidia drivers installed before? If not, what changes have you made to your XF86Config file since installing them?

i had only installed the "old" display-drivers which were installed with RedHat 9.0.
after i've installed the new one, i've edited the config file by reading the README-file that was included with the installer.

does i have to make more changes?

Can we see your XF86Config file? Problems can often times be traced back to a mere typo or an ommitted module or something.
