Re: doom3 slowness
I'm dual booting my system (A64 3000+, nVidia FX5900XT 128MB, 1G DDR)
with XP and Debian-AMD64 currently. I got Doom3 to run, but you're
right; it runs quite slowly compared to Windows (about 1/3 the frame
rate at the same settings).
I notice UT2004 runs slightly slower, too. I'm used to games running
faster in Linux, dammit :-(
"timedemo demo1" in the console, with "Medium" setting graphics,
shadows off, 1024x768 gets me around 25FPS. Under XP, i'm getting 75
What do you get in glxgears? I get around 8500 or so, thought I would
have gotten more on this system (my old Athlon 1.4 with Geforce 2 used
to get about 5000).
