Latest Nvidia and other things

Hi All,

So it's been a couple of weeks, I've been working on trying to get a promotion, let me tell you without a lot of help from some great Sun colleges my documents would not be as good as they are.  I found it difficult to write about me, a lot easier to do product presentations.

I've been playing with the Nvidia driver settings on the Acer C90S, with the separate X server on the LCD and external monitor, with Compiz and 4 desktops each, I'm getting about 5000 frames per second running /usr/X11/demo/glxgears.

Rotating the cube is really smooth.

The external 500Gb 2.5" USB hard drive is working out great, it's has a ZFS pool which comes up all the time after I have to kill the laptop.

I'm having a problem with the 2.27.3 evolution, if I click on a large attachment it's locking up the system, still have not worked out whats going on yet.

I did do a B117 install on the Toshiba Portege R200 just for fun, the 2.26 nautilus sometimes does not come up all the way and you need to kill it a couple of times, looks like a timing issue, Compiz is not working at all on the Intel video, I'll have to look at this later, suspend / resume works ok, though the back light does not come up on the LCD.

I'm taking a couple of grandkids down to Oregon for a summer vacation tomorrow, back in two weeks.

Happy July 4th

Dave

I can't seem to find any specs for Acer C90S, only for Asus C90S...

When i run compiz on b117 i get about 2900 fps with a nVidia quadro fx 570m with only a single xserver. What graphics card is in the acer c90s?

pci bus 0x0001 cardnum 0x00 function 0x00: vendor 0x10de device 0x0407
nVidia Corporation GeForce 8600M GT

It's a daughter card that goes inside the laptop

[root@os-asus /usr/lib] /usr/X11/demo/glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately 1/7458 the monitor refresh rate.

Ok,

thanks for the clarification :)

It seems unfair that the 8600gt beats my card which on paper is a quicker card i think.

What nvidia drivers are you using, i have the standard 185.18.14 on my box. But glxgear score isn't everything... My old 4600ti gets as high score i think.

Good luck with getting your promotion!
