So after MAKEDEV'ing drm in the /dev directory, i start up X again and run glxgears with the following results;

Quote:
glxgears
Failed to initialize GEM. Falling back to classic.
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
320 frames in 5.0 seconds = 63.926 FPS
299 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.619 FPS
299 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.619 FPS
299 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.620 FPS
299 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.619 FPS
I go back and rm /dev/drm0 and fire up glxgears again and get this;

1398 frames in 5.0 seconds = 279.522 FPS
1597 frames in 5.0 seconds = 319.389 FPS
1593 frames in 5.0 seconds = 318.448 FPS
1595 frames in 5.0 seconds = 318.856 FPS
1593 frames in 5.0 seconds = 318.426 FPS
1593 frames in 5.0 seconds = 318.513 FPS
So now i am getting 50FPS+ more (synthetic of course) somehow? is this normal behavior? that i am getting crappier performance WITH /dev/drm0 in existance? appreciate any responses, even for pure academic purposes, thx.
