oh no, failed to do nvidia-glx Sad
nvidia-glx: Depends: nvidia-kernel-1.0.4496 but it is not installable

OR i must wait a while until it's downloadable (mom knows how long)

You probably have to build the nvidia-kernel-source first (see above; read the README.Debian of it!); this will give you that package and after installing it, install that glx-dev package.

allright, a few days ago i decided to once and for all get rid of the lack of GL. i built a 2.4.23 (2.6.0 is slow/unstable with MY configuration) and first tested if openmsx would still run fine, iirc it didnt. but i thought that the nvidia modile would be my salvation.

after compiling the source, installing the module and modifing X and even allowing openmsx to use /dev/rtc...
it runs miserably. other GL things finally run and look neat and run smooth. openmsx in gl mode only runs acceptable with frameskip=1 and without music emulation.

it must be something in the kernel and not the lack of nvidiamodules, but i still have no idea what it causes.

OK, what CPU loads do you have now with SDLHi and SDLGL?
What does glxinfo say now?

SDLHi is constantly @ 100%
SDLLo is a bit funny. if i switch to it from SLHi, it remains for quite a while @ 100%, then it comes down to 50-60. but it fluctuates a lot. sometimes it even goes down to 28 but thats rare.
SDLGL is consuming as much cycles as SDLHi

the default 2.4.18 is still running fine.

EDIT

glxinfo says A LOT!
i have direct rendering, lots of extentions.
the funny thing is that glxgears runs afwull. 100% and 74.400 FPS

What's wrong with using a default kernel?

well, the 2.4.18 has less features and is not optimized for my system (it has a broad configuration for many things that i do not have). and the kernel-headers that are required to compile the nvidia-module to not exactly match the version i have. old(default) kernel 2.4.18-bf2.4 needs kernel-headers, but i could never find them in debians ftp servers (apt-cache).
i just took another peek and suddenly my eye catches the corresponding kernel-headers. but now i would have to download 2.4.18-bf2.4 source and headers and then again do everything. this also means configuring it by hand which may lead to the problem i have with every custom kernel.
but switching back to older kernels is not really an option.

DarQ, could you please join us on IRC? Channel #openMSX on server irc.freenode.net.
I'll be better able to help you there.
(I'm also running Debian, btw.)

DarQ: You left IRC before I found this, so I'll post it here.

This might help if you have a VIA chipset and are using the nVidia driver build 5328:
www.sh.nu/download/nvidia/linux-2.4/

But probably downgrading to nVidia driver build 4496 is more reliable.
