Re: [vox-tech] GL apps not running, NVIDIA X11 module



Weird, I DL, and built it. It seems to work. Also using Debian 3.0 with
Nvidia. Not sure what speed is supposed to be reported. Is 2000FPS a good
thing or a bad thing?
2000FPS when running in its default window.
When I go FullScreen, it drops to ~200FPS
When I minimize ot or cover it, I get ~9000FPS

I guess this is a tool to estimate FPS for First Person Shooters?

Am running with
NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191
and
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191

Under X11, XF86Config-4 I have my modules set like this:
Section "Module"
        Load    "bitmap"
        Load    "dbe"
        Load    "ddc"
        Load    "extmod"
        Load    "freetype"
# reqired as per nvidia readme:
        Load    "glx"
        Load    "int10"
        Load    "pex5"
        Load    "record"
        Load    "speedo"
        Load    "type1"
        Load    "vbe"
        Load    "xie"
#removed as per nvidia readme:
#       Load    "GLcore"
#       Load    "dri"
EndSection

Do you have these enabled?
Do you have libsdl1.2-dev installed (debain package)
How about libsdl-image
libsdl1.2debian-all
(other sdl packages)
glutg3-dev
glut3g
other glut...
