Frame rate issue, reboot x, just odd
Ok a general description,
I installed cedega to try and play some games on my laptop, I did the tests and have fixed everything that failed except for the 3d accelleration, sort of. I used glxgears to find out that my frame rate was around 100 fps. I tried to find help in forums and google but really came up with nothing that would work. I tried to load C&C Generals anywho and it worked, just slow, painfully. So I got sick of it trying to lock up and <CTRL><ALT><BACKSPACED> my computer. Just for kicks I ran glxgears and all of the sudden I got 2000 fps. Today I tried glxgears and got only 100-200 so I <CTRL><ALT><BACKSPACEED> it and logged back in and again I get 2000 fps. Does anyone have any idea what is going on? The only other thing that works odd on my FC5 laptop is 1 out of 10 times Nautalus doesn't start up and I have to hold the power button down until the computer starts. Oh and when you have the NvIdia drivers installed does it screw up the process running mouse swirly effect thingy, that looked cool but now sucks?
Sorry if thats to many questions in one post.
