I have a problem of performance with 3D Graphic NVIDIA (Quadro FX GRID K2/PCIe/SSE2), when I run glxgears in a terminal as root, the system performance is 9676 FPS, but if I run glxgears with other user, the performance is 0.062 FPS.

  • You can test to see if its an environment problem with sudo -E, which gives you root, but preserves the user's environment variables. – cohensh Apr 23 '15 at 16:16
  • First, glxgears is not a benchmark. Second, what are your permissions on /dev/nvidia*? Have you set custom NVreg_* parameters? – derobert Apr 23 '15 at 16:41
  • @cohensh Its not an environment problem; The issue is weird, I note something new, so the question should change, the problem sometimes occurs with the user root, sometimes with other user, and vice versa, the issues sometimes reboot the machine. – Goerman Apr 23 '15 at 20:24

The problem occurs after reinstall driver of NVIDIA, with the command sanity (Perform basic sanity tests on an existing NVIDIA driver Installation), nvidia-installer –sanity , I could find the problem, (Error: The installed file *** has a different checksum (###) than when it was installed (###)) To fix it, delete manually these files and reinstall the driver.
