I have been running pretty old 270.x drivers because the newer ones changed the behavior where vsync is enabled by default now (NOOOO).
I have a triple monitor setup at work and it syncs to my lowest refresh rate monitor which is only 48Hz which is horrible for the other two (67Hz and 60 Hz).
I have tried adding:
to my xinitrc and also in kdm’s kdmrc file I tried adding:
Additional environment variables KDM should pass on to all programs it runs.
LD_LIBRARY_PATH and XCURSOR_THEME are good candidates;
otherwise, it should not be necessary very often.
Default is “”
I wonder if its not taking effect as maybe these things environment variables dont work until after X is loaded? That is a problem as XGL is openGL based and what everything runs under and is pretty much the main process which is running =(
Nothing seems to work. beryl bench is still showing 48 FPS which is driving me nuts. With steam for linux coming out I really want to use newer drivers now. Anyone have any ideas on getting around this? An option in /etc/X11/xorg.conf would have been nice for over-riding this
I guess back in the day I tested this and found that it seems like it only forced vsync with multiple graphics cards in use. When I did a single display/single graphics output it did not happen:
