yes the standard kernel coming with unstable....

What is the exact behaviour you are experiencing? Do you feel the desktop
is sluggish or a concrete application is not running smooth? Did you
enable desktop effects? BTW, what desktop are you using?

The more data you provide, the better for other people can tell you some
hints :-)
sur enough, ok i am running enlightement .16 as desktopmanager, without
too much options enabled (no effects etc)  and for normal work, e.g.
launching and moving xterms, editing documents wth libreoffice etc
there's no lag, as soon as i start some heavy duty graphic apps there's
lag and often some out of synchro lines that appear.

doesn't happen BTW with glxgears, but tested also with a widely
available game: extreme tuxracer

So, tuxracer (heavy OpenGL usage) performs adequately?

and then there's proprietary software i need running under wine which
doesn't use opengl but the "'$%'«» M$ system.... and those won't

That's a Wine problem...

tried also some heavy graphics games like regnum online, same problem,
they complain of lack of drivers....

Error messages would be useful...

i suppose now it has something to do with some lacking in the
translation between windows graphics and opengl :(
