I run suse 11.2 on Motherboard ASUS M3N78-EM, integrated video in Chipset NVIDIA GeForce 8300 256 Mb , AMD processor - AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+, RAM - 8.0 Gb dual channels, and noticed that compiz or kwin does not go smooth and easy . Sometimes opening folder or application does not respond quickly, switching between windows is not smooth and quick, rotating the cube is not smooth, scrolling file manager’s window with lots of files in it does not refresh correctly and I have to move the window itself to make it refreshed, but moving the windows and wobby effect works fine, screenlets apper in kde and does not appear in gnome. I tried in KDE and GNOME the same result . It is the same with kwin. The nvidia driver is 190.xxx .
I have another comp - MB ASUS M2N-VM DH, integrated video NVIDIA GeForce 6100 / nForce 430 128 Mb, AMD processor - AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+, RAM - 8.0 Gb dual channels, and run Suse 10.3. Compiz works absolutely fine - easy , smooth. The nvidia driver is 175.xxx
I am wondering where the problem is ? - something with nvidia driver or something with suse 11.2
