Hope everyone had a good holiday.
I've got an odd problem, and wanted to describe it here in case anyone else experiences it, or can make a suggestion I've missed.
I updated both my tower and my laptop to OpenSuse 10.2 from 10.1.
The upgrade went without a hitch apart from the obvious changes in the GL drivers.
Tower uses a NVIDIA card, and the laptop is ATI. I downloaded the drivers, installed then onto the kernel, Xorg, etc which also seemed to be fine.
The problem is that on the tower, when I run homewroldSDL, it's erratic. for a few seconds it runs beautifully, and then for a few seconds it runs badly and jerks, then fine again.
No problem on the laptop, it runs beautifully all the time.
Replaced stuff, deleted stuff and given up for a while.
Things left to try:
1)install another GL && SDL based game and see if it does the same (scp)
2)Remove drivers and try using Mesa. (Bleugh
Any other suggestions?
