    Very interesting release notes. Every performance option for KDE4 now enabled by default + new VDPAU API.

    no compiz here.

    I've a Nvidia 7800 GTX PCIe (maybe it helps)...others having problems, too.

    simple search at http://community.enemyterritory.com/forums for "nvidia" you'll find various threads...(some ppl mentioned that they only have that problem when they use a combo: a specified kernel version and the nvidia 177.80 driver)

    I still get horrible framerates with ETQW in all distros I tried with my computer and this driver, the same as before.

    I haven't experienced the performance issue with 177 vs 173 drivers (tried lightsmark - 90fps with 173, 110 with 177), but I did hear others complaining about it too though.

    yes Plagman told me on IRC that this one is fixed in the 180.x branch.
    (if you are talking about the same corruption issue)

    I'd say disable compiz when playing games..you need all the performance you can get while playing...compiz on top of all that can make your system hiccup. Not to mention the bugs in compiz that possibly can get tripped up during game play.
