I've updated to the latest testing 302.17 & it's working ok so far.

<AOL> Me too </AOL>. Thanks for starting the thread, and giving the
answer. I ran an update last night, and X wouldn't restart today. I
remembered the thread, keyworded 302.17, and am back up and running.

I just did the same update. I thought at first everything was okay,
then I ran glxgears, which runs at 1/5 normal speed. Going back to
295.59 fixed it. Very puzzling, since there was nothing unusual in
Xorg.0.log.

What does glxgears prove anyways? With 295.59 I get 5300 fps, and
302.17 gives me 3 spf (yes... seconds per frame!!!). But Youtube, etc
seems to function the same. So I'm wondering about the point of
glxgears.

glxgears is not a benchmark. http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Glxgears_is_not_a_Benchmark

*I've heard that this http://www.phoronix-test-suite.com/?k=downloads is a good option, but I still didn't have time to try it.

Just wanted to let you know, that there is a bug that affects lots of
people with 302.xx: X-console-switch and resume-from-suspend are broken.

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=179956
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=179891

I have to revert back to 295.xx for my notebook to suspend again :(

Greetings,
Daniel

glx gears shows you that stuff works or not.

So it's a quick go-no go test, just not useful for measuring anything.
It's designed for the scenario where you want to judge relatively how
well things are working today video-wise. Now, you could run a 3D
rendering app, or play a video, or something like that and see how it
performs compared to the same thing yesterday. But those apps all do
many other things as well as drive the video card so you don't really
know what is influencing the mix.

With glxgears, all it does is drive the video and draw spinning gears,
nothing else. So if version X-1 yesterday worked fine and the video was
smooth, but version X today plays very jerkily, and nothing else
changed, then you know your system does not like version X.

It's a perfectly valid test, just don't trust the numbers - trust what
your eyes tell you.

I don't suspend on my machines: Nvidia is running on my desktop PC.

Commenting on the other msgs re Glxgears, (1) which pkg is it in ?
(2) there's a Gears screen in Xscreensaver, which I've seen today & is ok ;
(3) I managed to get a bit of video to run using Flash today.

I do have a problem that occasionally an image on Firefox overflows
& this then infects all the other desktop displays:
it is cured by killing FF & re-opening it.
That seems, however, to be due to Firefox 13 or possibly Flash,
not to Nvidia, which I've only just updated.

Thanks to both.
