pacman -Syu (NVIDIA 6111)

Hello,

today I did pacman -Syu and got the new Nvidia-driver. Later I saw, that using glxgears I had lost about 20% FPS.
I tried to install directly usind the Nvidia-...-.run pkg and it was the same.
I reinstalled the last 610x -driver and it was as before, 20% more FPS than 6111.

Hmmm... did I do something wrong?
The new driver worked as if I had none...


Isn´t it wonderful?

Re: pacman -Syu (NVIDIA 6111)

If something went wrong there should be something in your /var/log/nvidia-installer or /var/log/Xorg.0.log (in this case in LoadModule: "glx" section).
And sometimes it just happens that new drivers have lower performance than the older. It looks like this is the case. I had 1200-1300 fps in glxgers and now I have 1100 average fps. So it seems that we can only share our sadness on http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=14 and wait for next release :-)

hi it doesn't make any difference if you run pacman -S nvidia
or run the installer by hand it's simply the same
only with pacman -S nvidia it's traced by pacman
and you don't have user interaction and you get the update when it's released

Re: pacman -Syu (NVIDIA 6111)

oh i forgot
i have performance loss too but i think it will soon be fixed
if you want to go back edit the PKGBUILD and nvidia.install
and change the installer name back to an older version

Up to now I have no clue what is the PKGBUILD, but I am sure I will know it soon, as indeed archlinux is simple and logical.
One of my next steps would have been the thing to build packages (APG or so...)
I think I go to the Wiki and read that stuff right now...

remove md5sum line in PKGBUILD
change the files to your version and type makepkg
then pacman -U nvidia...
