    Default Bad performance with 11.1 and proprietary nvidia drivers

    I've just installed openSUSE 11.1 (64bits) with KDE4.1. I also installed the nvidia proprietary drivers by using this link: http://opensuse-community.org/nvidia.ymp

    Now kwin effects work but the overall performance is terrible. I can't even move a window without seeing glitches.

    I've got a Core2Duo T8100 at 2.10GHz, 4GB of memory and a GeForce8400M so i would expect a much better performance.

    Any tips on how to improve performance ?
    Thanks.

    Hi!
    You can improve your card's performance by installing the latest beta drivers from nvidia: ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86. Thow-to is under the link.
    Good luck.

    For installing beta drives you need to have installed kernel-sources, kernel-header and gcc.
