    HOWTO: Increase video performance

    On some reasons by default these modules are not present in X11 config, but, to the measure for me these modules in 2 times accelerate the capacity of performance.
    Add this to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

    Code:
    Section "Module"
            Load    "i2c"
            Load    "bitmap"
            Load    "ddc"
            Load    "dri"
            Load    "extmod"
            Load    "freetype"
            Load    "glx" # If you have VESA driver, comment this.
            Load    "int10"
            Load    "vbe"
    EndSection
    Enjoy!

    Re: HOWTO: Increase video performance

    I assume this HOWTO is for Hardy users, since the xorg.conf generated by Gutsy and prior versions has this section.

    Unfortunately, your guide doesn't improve performance at all - it doesn't do anything at all, in fact. Xorg autodetects these modules by default. If you don't believe me, delete the section, restart X and then check your log, e.g.:

    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep -i extmod
    You'll see that every module gets loaded (the exception is "bitmap", which does not appear in the log whether loaded or not).
