I still question whether this is the best driver for this graphics processor but I will continue using it for now
I had similar problems with my nvidia gforce 7025 on mint 17. I installed the drivers with the method suggested at the bottom of this thread
on the mint forums and I've had a lot better performance.
Thank you Stormrider
for your response. I am sorry that I didn't respond sooner. I have been (as time allows) attempting to isolate the problem with poor performance in Oolite and I have to admit that I am still at a loss to find a solution. In fact, that I why I'm back here.
I just logged into this Forum to open another Thread and see if I could get some ideas from the community. That's when I noticed your response to this post.
investigation regarding the latest drivers for my Gforce 7050
graphics adapter for Linux, it appears that I do have the current drivers for this GPU?
During the process of trying to find and install the latest Nvidia drivers for this GPU, I visited Nvidia's web site and found that they recommend the 304.88
version of the driver. Since this seems to be regression from the driver currently installed, I am choosing not to install that driver at this time.
I believe that I am using the most current driver at the moment but I will continue to investigate the matter further.
Thank you for your thoughts and advice. It is much appreciated
