nvidia X performance/problem solved...
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I've been getting quite some reactions on my nvidia problem, of which about
50% basic remarks and the other half very useful ones. Thanks for all of
I'll start with (shortly) explaining with what I was strugling and then what
made me solve it (for more elaborate ramblings of mine about this, I suggest
you check the mailing list archives ;) )
PROBLEM: whenever I started my X server with the nvidia module, I got a green
rectangle on my screen, on the position I last played an DivX encoded film
(either in wintendo or in Linux). It covered everything, and got rid of it by
starting another clip.
Since then, this problem has been confirmed by a collegue of mine (Tom), on a
Mandrake or Redhat system. Only his rectangle was reported to be orange :P
Tnx to Jeff Ewing and Adam Cassar that gave suggestions to solve the probs (I
even met a person on the #nvidia channel that went there because of my mail)
(and those I forget, because my inbox is a real mess).
Well basically, I removed the following options from the default XF86Config-4
(After recompiling a kernel without fb support (vesa or nvidia), and without
AGP support -2.4.4-)...
# Load "GLcore"
# Load "dri"
Option "NvAgp" "1"
with my device being:
Identifier "Diamond Viper 770"
