    Default misunderstanding with my GFX card or with linux...

    Hello dear friend, i'm here to ask for your help in order to solve my problem or to make me see the light at the end of the corridor...

    I recently installed Mandriva One 2009.0, which is supposed to have Nvidia closed source driver (as written [HTML=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandriva_Linux#Mandriva_Linux_One]here[/HTML]) in this case the 1770.70 version installed, on an Asus P5NT Deluxe, Asus EN9600GT with 1024MB DDR3.

    Here is the kernel version info:
    Code:
    [setlec@localhost ~]$ uname -a
    Linux localhost 2.6.27.5-desktop586-2mnb #1 SMP Thu Nov 20 15:00:22 EST 2008 i686 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     E8200  @ 2.66GHz GNU/Linux
    Here is the packages with nvidia that are installed:
    Code:
    Name: nvidia-current-kernel-desktop586-latest
    Version: 177.70
    Release: 1.20081121.2.3mdv2009.0
    Name: dkms-nvidia-current
    Version: 177.70
    Release: 2.3mdv2009.0
    Name: nvidia-current-kernel-2.6.27.5-desktop586-2mnb
    Version: 177.70
    Release: 2.3mdv2009.0
    Name: x11-driver-video-nvidia-current
    Version: 177.70
    Release: 2.3mdv2009.0
    ok now that you know what kernel and Nvidia driver i have lets see the performance with glxgears:

    Code:
    [root@localhost setlec]# glxgears
    41517 frames in 5.0 seconds = 8292.962 FPS
    41426 frames in 5.0 seconds = 8281.419 FPS
    41314 frames in 5.0 seconds = 8252.292 FPS
    41015 frames in 5.0 seconds = 8187.021 FPS
    41382 frames in 5.0 seconds = 8267.154 FPS
    41099 frames in 5.0 seconds = 8219.767 FPS

    Can you install the latest version of nVidia's driver? Either 177.82 or 180.11?

    If you dual boot, does the same thing happen with your other operating system?

    Does the power supply supply enough watts/amps for everything? Is anything overclocked?

    i dual boot my pc on vista i played the games listed in my previous post without any problem...

    No overclocked hardware (i fear to mess with my hardware) and my power supply is a real 570 watts PSU from thermaltake my pc consuption is at 300 watts approx. (gfx: 95 watts max, intel core 2 duo E8200 45 watts, asus P5NT deluxe 50 watts 4 GB DDR2 800Mhz kingstone about 25 watts each...

    ok i've installed the 170.82 version as stated here
    Code:
    [root@localhost setlec]# urpme nvidia
    The following packages contain nvidia: 
    dkms-nvidia-current-177.82-1mdv2009.0.i586
    nvidia-current-kernel-2.6.27.5-desktop586-2mnb-177.70-2.3mdv2009.0.i586
    nvidia-current-kernel-desktop586-latest-177.70-1.20081121.2.3mdv2009.0.i586
    x11-driver-video-nvidia-current-177.82-1mdv2009.0.i586
    the glxgears performance are:
    Code:
    [root@localhost setlec]# glxgears
    52235 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10446.922 FPS
    54298 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10857.490 FPS
    54224 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10833.321 FPS
    53844 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10768.708 FPS
    54136 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10825.249 FPS
    I'll try later to launch ET:QW to see if it works or not...

    Cheers

    BTW, glxgears is not a benchmark. It's common to see graphics cards or driver versions that get higher glxgears scores and yet lower gaming fps. It's outdated and doesn't stress modern graphics cards at all.

    Rendering a complex scene at 60 fps (like in a modern game) is very different from rendering a very simple scene at tens of thousands of fps. Glxgears used to be relevant way back when games used the kind of graphics that it still does.

    A glxgears score is completely meaningless.
