Seems things are getting somewhere now... The agpgart module gets loaded, but not the via_agp. Try loading that aswell before nvidia. My guess is that using the internal agp or no agp, have pretty much the same effect.

Hmm.. I just tested without using the Xgl server and now I get about the same as you, a high sys. Actually it reads 50% for each sys and user. The thing is also that my fps is now about half of before, while using Xgl.

Doing a benchmark with quake3 have the excact opposite result. Just goes to show how useless a benchmark glxgears is

Thanks at least now I know that this is not caused by some hardware failure.
The question still remains though: Why nvidia drivers take 60% sys time under
kernel 2.6 and only 30% or less under kernel 2.4 (and this is also
with Quake 1,2 and 3)

Might just be that it's reported to be part of system usage and not application usage. If the framerate is different between 2.4 and 2.6 I would be worried.

I'll try and test later with quake3.
