Re: Nvidia bata & desktop effects



I finally got it going with gnome.   I have no noticed any slow down what so ever.
I'm even compiling two applications and watching a divx movie with mplayer.

The screen updates on the wobble are sliky smooth.   I'm very impressed.

i was running a kernel compile in the background to generate the cpu
load :)

yes read it on http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=77030
this made me think of the --direct-rendering switch, and it worked out
nicely.
... btw. the 'export __GL_YIELD="NOTHING"' tip from that howto made it
again slower.
