Prologue
I bought a new Computer. It is Windows free. I asked no OS to the shopkeeper friend, he installed Ubuntu 11.04 to check full PC functionality. With the nvidia proprietary driver, glxgears runs at ~ 11000 FPS.
Story
Since some day I've been playing with a persistent aptosid usbpen to be prepared for installation on HD.
All is working fine. Free nouveau driver works decent (~1000FPS with glxgears test), but in kde4 I cannot use OpenGL and kwin does not enable several effects.
I'm interest in check on aptosid the performance using proprietary driver. I followed the manual http://manual.aptosid.com/en/gpu-en.htm#nvidia, dmakms way, but I'm doing something wrong, because X doesn't start any more.
I loaded on pastebin some info I hope can be useful to understand what is not working. Here the links :

Thanks for any hint.

First, install aptosid and update to the latest slh kernel; how do you expect to get support for Ubuntu here?

Next thing I notice that is a problem is a mix of 280.13.really.275.28-1 and 96.43.20-2 packages. I suggest apt-get purge --remove all nvidia packages and then follow the manual again.

Nvidia is working now, but there are some problems as I'm sure you've noticed in other threads. Now is not an ideal time to be benchmarking nvidia... if nouveau runs the programs you want to use, then I suggest keeping it.

@browe
thanks for Your feedback.
Could be I was not so clear, I'm not asking support for Ubuntu. I've been using aptosid (since the previous "name") from years. For this reason, now that I've the new PC, I want to install it and continue with it. My support request is to try aptosid to the max. performance on this new PC.
Hoping it is now more clear.
Thanks,
Barlafuss

Install to HDD, dist-upgrade to latest, and then follow the manual exactly to install the closed source drivers.
Greetings,
Chris
