I know it's not the fastest card in the first place or anything, but I still used to get ~1,000 FPS in glxgears, and the interface was snappy. Google Earth is much slower, and glxgears hovers at ~100 FPS. I first noticed this a month or two ago. I suppose an "emerge -uD" world broke something.

I've checked everything according to my own experience and many threads. I'll go down the checklist of usual problems for which I've already looked:

-Direct rendering is enabled.

-I'm using the nvidia driver, not the nv driver.

-I have the VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia" entry in make.conf.

-I've used eselect to choose nvidia instead of xorg-x11.

-I've enabled loadable module support, MTRR support, and /dev/agpart support in my 2.6.18-gentoo-r4 kernel. I've also disabled nVidia framebuffer and Riva support.

The only potential problem I can see is here:
Code:

# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status:          Enabled
Driver:          AGPGART
AGP Rate:        8x
Fast Writes:     Disabled
SBA:             Enabled

# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/card
Fast Writes:     Supported
SBA:             Supported
AGP Rates:       8x 4x
Registers:       0x1f000e1b:0x1f000302

# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/host-bridge
Host Bridge:     PCI device 1106:3189
Fast Writes:     Not Supported
SBA:             Supported
AGP Rates:       8x 4x
Registers:       0x1f000a0f:0x00000b02

I don't know much about video cards, so I don't know if the fast writes thing is a big deal, but it's apparently not supported. I don't know if this is a limitation of my hardware or of my software configuration.

I tried unmasking and emerging the unstable nVidia drivers, but then I couldn't run X anymore. I promptly switched back to the stable drivers.

Can anyone help me gain back my snappiness? Thanks.

This may or may not relevant since I found it on an ATI and not an nvidia, but your suggestion of things breaking about a month ago suggests to me that it may be a bigger problem than I thought.

At the end of January, my ATI performance went into the toilet after an Xorg server and mesa library update. After some poking around, I decided it was due to some breakage in the EXA AccelMethod. Check your xorg.conf and switch this:

Code:
       Option      "AccelMethod" "EXA"

to this
Code:
      Option      "AccelMethod" "XAA"


and see what happens if you don't already use XAA mode.

I didn't previously have an AccelMethod entry, but I added the XAA one into the video card's device section. It didn't have any effect. Thanks, though.

I just realized that I probably should have posted my xorg.conf earlier:

Today's round of X11 updates not only fixed everything but actually blew away my previous glxgears numbers. It used to max at around 1,100 FPS, and now I'm getting almost 1,900 FPS. GoogleEarth is now smooth once again. :)

Shortly after writing the last post, everything slowed down again. Between writing that last post and the slowdown, all I did was watch a DVD with Kaffeine and configure KStars. Afterwards, just to bask in the full framerate again, I ran glxgears and got 90-100 FPS instead of 1,800-1,900 FPS. Google Earth was just as clunky as usual. I don't know what's causing all of these problems and why they're happening so randomly, but it's frustrating. :?

Edit: I forgot to note that during the low FPS times, my CPU registers no activity, so I assume everything's being done by the GPU. During the high FPS times, though, my CPU was maxing out, too.

palsyboy:
noticed the same with an even older ati card. Slowdown happened at xorg 7.0 --> 7.1 and mesa 6.5.0 --> 6.5.1 upgrade, reported this at xorg ml but got no answer.

one question - my friend own the same card you have - he is interested in all those desktop effects beryl/compiz, is that possible with geforce2 (4) cards?

According to the system requirements, that card should be just fine.

I figured at this point that it might be some sort of hardware problem, so I ordered a slightly overclocked GeForce 6200. I figured that if nothing else, it should at least exceed 100 FPS. Nope. It still tops at around 100 FPS. This must reveal something about the problem, since a significantly faster GPU gets the exact same performance.

This is getting ridiculous. Is my AGP slot screwed up? And if so, how could I test it?

Run glxinfo, you want to see these bits in there,
Code:
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.4
client glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
client glx version string: 1.4
Also check the X log for nvidia warnings.

Thanks.

All of those strings show up in the glxinfo output.

I posted the X log above, and I can't find any warnings in it.

nvidia binary driver for that (geforce 4) card is in: x11-drivers/nvidia-legacy-drivers and not x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers as far as I can tell, but maybe I am wrong.

I already removed the MX 4000, though the current drivers should support it.

After reading your suggestion, though, I did try the 6200 with legacy drivers. Google Earth had the same mediocre performance, but glxgears output held consistently between 108-112 FPS, which was slightly higher than before. However, the gears themselves would barely rotate except once every second or two.

Thanks for the idea, though.

Sometimes me also find something that can't setup in Gentoo and my last try always is to put some decent livecd linux distro into cd tray and stole configuration from them :)

Use sabayon, pclinuxos, dreamlinux gl, whatever live cd/dvd that ships with nvidia binary drivers and analyze:
1) kernel .config,
2) lsmod output
3) /etc/X11/xorg.conf etc

Hope this will solve poor graphics beavior.

Have you tried using the proprietary NvAGP that comes with the driver? Or if you were using it, disabling it?

I hear some folks solved their problems with switching that option. I think it's:

Code:
Option "NvAgp" "Value"

"Value" can be 0,1,2 or 3. You don't want 0, that's disabling the AGP support in the driver. 1 turns on the NvAGP if possible, 2 uses the kernel's AGPGART.

Do they have 3D rendering enabled on the liveCD? If so, that's very, very cool.

kind of grasping at straws, but that almost seems like all you got left, so here goes.

Have you tried booting with the noapic and/or nolapic parameters in the kernel line in grub or lilo
It may be that the irq for your vid card is fouled up by apic or lapic.

It's a stretch, and it may not be technically possible, but it is easy to try and easy to reverse (heck, if you use grub, you can just hit e and edit the line and boot and it only lasts for one boot). \

Thanks for the idea. After doing a lot of reading about it, I tried these combinations:

NvAGP=1 with AGPGART compiled into the kernel
NvAGP=2 with AGPGART compiled into the kernel
NvAGP=0 with AGPGART compiled into the kernel

These had no effect due to the NvAGP settings only affecting systems without AGPGART compiled into the kernel, but I thought I'd try it, anyway.

NvAGP=[b]NvAGP=1 with AGPGART compiled into the kernel and an "agp=off" boot option
NvAGP=2 with AGPGART compiled into the kernel and an "agp=off" boot option
NvAGP=0 with AGPGART compiled into the kernel and an "agp=off" boot option

This did nothing.

NvAGP=1 with AGPGART as a module
NvAGP=2 with AGPGART as a module
NvAGP=0 with AGPGART as a module

These had no effect for the same reason as the first three combinations, but once again, I gave it a try.

NvAGP=1 with AGPART neither compiled into the kernel or as a module
During the kernel compiling, I got several nVidia errors but figured I had nothing to lose. Upon booting, KDM wouldn't start, and running startx gave me errors saying that the nvidia module couldn't be loaded. Here is the output of dmesg during that time:

So I recompiled AGPGART into my kernel and restarted my slowly-rendering machine. :(

Have you tried booting with the noapic and/or nolapic parameters in the kernel line in grub or lilo
It may be that the irq for your vid card is fouled up by apic or lapic.

Good idea, but it still didn't work. I took some inspiration from your logic and also removed the "irqpoll" boot option from GRUB, but that didn't do anything, either (except lengthen boot time).

Thanks for the ideas, everyone. :)

Crud! :? What's set in your BIOS? Can you set the AGP-speed, the aperture size, etc.? AGP aperture can also reduce performance, but it shouldn't result in this big a loss.

Given that you've already had rendering work at acceptable speeds under X, though, I do suspect it's rather a case of some packages and drivers misbehaving. Have you tried recompiling mesa, xorg-server, cairo, glitz, etc.? Do you use those at all? Are you using a composite extension?

One of my friends had a similar idea, so I tried many different combinations of settings. Nothing made any differences, though. Here are my current AGP-related settings:

Graphics Aperture Size: 128 MB
AGP Capability: 8X Mode
AGP Performance Control: Enabled
AGP Fast Write Control: Enabled
Video Memory Cache Mode: UC
AGP Skew (Byte 14): 00

I'm not familiar with cairo, or glitz, and there's nothing by those names in my world file, so I'm guessing that I'm not using them. I've recompiled xorg-server several times, and it's never made any difference. I took your cue, though, and mesa-progs is recompiling as I type this. I have to go to work now, but I'll write back once it's finished and I'm back home for the evening.

Thanks again.

Edit: Nevermind, it already finished. Unfortunately, it didn't make a difference. :(

Cairo is a 2D graphics library with an OpenGL extension called glitz. I've had both cairo and glitz in my USE variable as a standard for as long as I can remember, even on systems that didn't have direct rendering support, it appears that they at least didn't do any harm...

Try toning down the AGP aperture unless you're planning on making heavy use of system memory for textures. Usually, 64MB ought to be enough, although YMMV of course, depending on what you use the box for (gaming under Windows, etc.). Personally, I've found that changing the aperture has negligible (one might also say "unnoticeable") effects on my box, FWIW, so it may not do much good or anything at all.

I noticed that your BIOS has fast writes enabled, but your cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/host-bridge from earlier said that it wasn't supported. Maybe you could try turning that BIOS option off.

I'm pretty much at the end of my wits here...

I suspect that your kernel & kernel modules aren't compiled properly. Do this:
Code:
cd /usr/src/linux
make clean && make && make modules && make modules_install
emerge nvidia-drivers

If you're still stumped, and have some extra disk space somewhere, you could try a quick install of some other distro.
If that is hosed in a similar problem, you may have some kind of hardware problem.

Your hardware is pretty common, so if it was a generic issue, I would think it would turn up somewhere. Installing another distro rules out (at least pretty close) the software. I would try something that is fairly simple and makes it easy to get the nvidia drivers working, but most do that. Ubuntu might be a good choice since there are a lot of people using it, and lots of step by step instructions on setting it up and installing the video drivers etc.

PaulBredbury: Thanks. I gave cleanly recompiling the kernel and modules a try (if that's the right thing to call that process. I don't actually understand it.), but it didn't work.

After I got the time, I decided to follow the suggestions of Ssl and jstead1 to install another distro. I still had a Kubuntu 6.06 disc, so I unplugged my current hard drive and installed another one that was lying around. After installing Kubuntu onto the old drive, 3D acceleration worked fine. Google Earth was very smooth, and glxgears ran at 1,700 FPS.

Anyway, it's now confirmed that my hardware is fine. So I'm stumped as to what's wrong with my software. Here are the nvidia- and agp-related portions of dmesg:
Code:

nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.
Linux agpgart interface v0.101 (c) Dave Jones
