Default Nvidia drivers and 2.6.18 kernel, Slackware 11

Firstly I've tried this drivers: 8762, 8774, 9629, 9631. And my fps was low. I know cuz before i had Slackware 10.2 installed and fps was 1500-1600, now i have 700-900. And cant play. I dont wanna show my configs and else cuz ive looked about my problem at many places and I know that isnt problem with my configs or computer. So. Now i am trying to install 7667 drivers and getting this error at my nvidia-installer log: /tmp/selfgz10756/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7667-pkg1/usr/src/nv/os-interface.c:12
84: error: structure has no member named `rlim'

Can anybody help me to find any ways? With first (about fps) or second (about 7667 drivers) problem...

P.S. glxinfo|grep direct shows direct rendering "yes", lsmod|grep nvidia shows nvidia, and my CPU isnt busy.

What specifically are you trying to play and where are you seeing these FPS numbers?

Also, please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log and post the output from glxinfo.

Thanks,
Lonni

I've tried to play Counter strike 1.6, Diablo2 LoD, World of Warcraft. And used glxgears to define fps.

In addition: after i posted here i did some things. I've entered in 2.4.33 kernel (i didnt delete it) and tried to install some drivers. Firstly 9631 - got same result as I have at 2.6.18 kernel, after that I've installed 8XXX and got same result too. So I've tried to install 7667 drivers and did it without any troubles and I was type 'glxgears', got 2300 fps Now I know, where is a problem. It's a problem with drivers. New drivers gave low fps anyway. And here we've got another problem. Why I cant install 7667 driver under new 2.6.18 kernel. Maybe driver cant be used at new kernels? I'm lookin for answers.

P.S. I dont wanna paste results of glxinfo and nvidia-bug-report before u will look at my new post.

Older drivers are no longer supported, and are not expected to build against newer kernels.

glxgears is not a benchmark.

Please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log and post the output from glxinfo.

Thanks,

netllama, look. I think that my card cant work good with new drivers under linux (i got problems with new drivers and some games at Windows too. for exam i cant play in CoD2 with new drivers under Windows, just with oldest). Need to say again, my card is Nvidia GF4 - MX440.

U said that glxgears isnt benchmark, but ive tried play too. I can play under 2.4.33 kernel. And cant play under 2.6.18 cuz i said: my fps are low. and if u dun wanna know result of glxgears i said that ive tried to play Diablo 2 for exam (too old game) and ive got many lags How to generate nvidia-bug-report.log? And in addition (cuz i will attach nvidia-bug-report.log after ur answer about it.) I will attach glxinfo result.

What kind of motherboard are you using?
Have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS?

Thanks,
Lonni

This problem seems to be specific to your environment. I'm afraid that I'm unable to reproduce the performance problem you've reported, and I don't have any other suggestions, as I do not have the motherboard you're using to reproduce the problem.
