I would recommend sending an e-mail to the nvidia linux support alias. Be polite and to the point. Reference the three threads on this board. Make certain to update the thread when you receive a response.

Thank you for your time,

Lightbulb Nvidia Xfree86 config file

Hi,
as i use a PC running Gentoo linux on a nforce2 based motherboard with a TI4200, i'm really interesting to move from my TI4200 to un FX5200 video card since there isn't a fan on it (i wish put in a shuttle).
Actually my TI4200 runs fine, i play a lot to severals FPS games as the wonderfull America's Army. Obviously, i'm playing under Linux.
So i've read your problems and i'm really interesting about the fact that could work really so i give you my XF86config file as you could use it as template for your configuration. There are all the nvidia's options inside and it's really easy to check for each kind of option. you could even don't use the TFT detection if do not use DVI plug as i do.

Attached Files
File Type: txt xf86config.txt (4.5 KB, 167 views)

Sorry, that doesn't help. Our X options really don't differ.

I've emailed the nvidia support address a while ago. I don't know if they send responses or acknowledgements but I never got any.
It's a shame my system worked with the GeForce 2 GTS so much better than with the FX 5200 Ultra now.

I played around with some OpenGl programs I wrote and noticed the following things.

1. Whenever the slow 2D redraw problem occurs, the utilization of both CPUs is 100% system usage according to the Gnome CPU applet.
2. Even when no 2D slowdown seems to be happening, the utilization will occasionally spike to 100% and there will be noticible stuttering of the OpenGL.
3. The OpenGL app is single threaded and normally only uses 100% of 1 cpu.

Indeed, that's exactly what I get too.
