Launching pymol crashes compiz with Nvidia driver (#743117)
In: compiz (Ubuntu)
Status: Fix Released
Importance: Medium

OpenGL renderer string: GeForce GT 330M/PCI/SSE2

glxgears is slow, which is probably more likely a problem with glxgears. However, it does slow down compiz, which it probably shouldn't be able to do.

supertuxkart was smooth.

Launching pymol (molecular graphics) crashes compiz, however.

I had no error with glxinfo, but after closing OpenArena I had a "black desktop". I have to move some window or switch to another workspace in order to clean my "desktop"

After installing Blender, Compiz crashed, same after installing 3D game. Compiz automatically restarted and 3D worked perfectly.
After reboot of the computer I could not reproduce this errors, still testing and trying to reproduce.
>>could not reproduce.

GLX gears is very slow - causes everything to run slow
35152 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7030.208 FPS

However Armagetron 3d game runs fine and smoothly

Passedvegancorr2011-03-26 02:52

glxgears - very slow
10541 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2108.155 FPS
Warsow game seemed to work ok.

Passedpatlkli2011-03-23 23:12

Like at all the others, glxinfo indicates hardware rendering, but glxgears makes Unity unusable.

85091 frames in 5.0 seconds = 17018.023 FPS

Blender ran without problems, and even after some basic modelling and rendering I didn't notice any problems.

3D games also run well.

Passedricflomag2011-03-23 14:51

Games work ok.

If Vsync is off (default):
7255 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1450.815 FPS
But unity and glxgears window are very slow (1fps)

If vsync is on (set using nvidia-xserver-settings):
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh.
327 frames in 5.0 seconds = 65.202 FPS
Unity and the glxgears windows are (almost) smooth

display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.4

Blender ran.
glxgears 21658 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4331.408 FPS
Unity did become slow but still somewhat usable

OpenGL renderer string: GeForce 8600 GT/PCI/SSE2

OpenArena worked well. glxgears however slows the system down quite a bit.

supertuxkart works smoothly.
glxgears gives me 9000 FPS but makes Unity very slow.

Passedhenry2011-03-22 17:26

Compiz works. 3D games Torcs runs smoothly. glxgears very slow, taking 100% load.
glxgears runs fine in Classic Desktop (no effects)

glxgears runs fine when window is maximized.

Passedgrgiii2011-03-22 10:40

glxgears slow about 13000 frames in 5 seconds about 2700 fps
one cpu 100%

Passedwarp2011-03-22 09:47

I've tested OpenArena - works smooth.

Passedgrantbdev2011-03-22 00:08

glxgears is slow: 55571 frames in 5.0 seconds = 11114.139 FPS.

Blender is fine.

PassedLTGoldman2011-03-21 23:59

glxinfo runs smoothly

OpenGL renderer string indicates hardware rendering:

OpenGL renderer string: GeForce 8600M GT/PCI/SSE2

Blender opens smoothly

glxgears runs slowly, desktop becomes very slow to respond.
18045 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3608.986 FPS

3D games run adequately.

Passedoptln2011-03-21 21:43

Compiz and OpenArena works perfectly. glxgears slows compiz. If vsync is on, slowness on compiz becomes a bit acceptable.

Passedubutobi2011-03-21 19:53

glxgears very slow
83920 frames in 5.0 seconds = 16783.801 FPS
while glxgears runs computer is unusable - ctrl-C in terminal helps

Passedtinche2011-03-21 19:40

Compiz pretty much dies if glxgears is running. Classic Desktop (no effects) works properly.

bledner runs without any problems

glxgears are very slow:
35890 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7177.888 FPS

if glxgears run computer becomes are unusable

Compiz works but simple applications like glxgears are very very slow. Still investigating about it
