I FINALLY got DRI working, so thanks for all the tips, but anyway, glxgears shows from around 100 to 2000+ frames per second (before DRI was working, it was around 100-200 fps), is this normal? Why isn't the new fps value constant?

Are there any processes running in the background? Did you minimize the window?

oh... yeah... after minimizing the gears window, I'm getting an almost constant 2560 fps...
