Re: Poor glxgears perfomance with unstable and radeon 7500
In fact, I provided glxgears measures as some kind of reference...
In the past I've already played planetpenguin-racer (at that time it was
called tux-racer...) on the same hardware (and sempron 2800, 1Go Ram,
ATI aiw radeon 7500) and it was pretty playable.
But, few days ago I wanted to have a look at slune, and I found that it
was slow, that's why I think there is a problem with 3D hardware
And now I've just tried ppracer and get only 2 poor frame (with a
640x480 resolution) it's impossible to play.
Am I missing something ?
OK, that indeed suggests that there is something wrong with your
hardware acceleration. 1600 FPS for glxgears seems fine to me (I have
around 900 FPS), so we have to look somewhere else for the problem.
Please post the following sections from your xorg.conf: "Module",
"Device" with the graphics card in it, "Monitor", "Screen",
"ServerLayout", "DRI", and (if it exists) "Extensions". Also tell us
which version of the kernel you are using (run "uname -a").
Then (re)start X and look for errors and warnings in the log file:
egrep '^\((EE|WW)\)' /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Post all output of this command here.
Start ppracer from a terminal, exit it again and check if you got any
error messages. Also have a look for anything graphics-related in
.xsession-errors. Hopefully something will give us a clue where things
P.S. Your English is fine (and certainly better than my French).
