Default glxgears really slow !!

Hi,

Once again, I had to install a NVIDIA card under a SuSE distro. But this time, the card is a FX5200 (128Mb), and it's with SuSE 9.0. Aaaaaaaand, now there is this wonderful script edited by nvidia !!
So I made it simple :
init 3
sh NVIDIA-linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run
switch2nvidia
init 5

And I was running the new drivers. Never done it that easily, I was really happy. I ran glxgears to check out... and I've only a 14 or 15 fps (at the default window size of glxgears). With my precedent card (only a 64Mb), I had at least 150fps !!

So I wonder : what's wrong ? I'm well running the nvIDIA drivers : xfree86 conf seems all right, nvidia is displayed at start of X and nvidia module is correctly loaded.

Where are the wonderful capacities of my card ?

Read the other threads...if you have a VIA motherboard these drivers don't work without patching.

It's ok, you expect that nvidia would fix the drivers and do a re-release rather than forcing a public beta test on everyone.
