I see you guys are running both Icaros 1.5.1 and 1.4.x. My question is why run 1.4.x ? Are you having a problem the new kernel or graphics in 1.5.1 ?

@ emeck
How is the GeForce4 working out with Aros?
@cavemann :
Nope. Simply this time I'd no time to test (I used a little every 1.5 wip but not extensively), so I waited 1.5 became the more stable 1.5.1 and installed it:)

I left 1.4 under QEmu because I already had it set, just that. Haven't used it more really.

GeForce4 is working fine for desktop stuff: text editing, pdf reading, window moving and resizing and such things. Also watching avi movies windowed or fullscreen with mplayer is very smooth.

Haven't tried games. But here is some fps info from mesa demos.

Gears ~= 50 fps
Tunnel ~= 5.45 fps
Gearbox ~= 2.1 fps
Reflect ~= 27.2

And result from GLMark:

Enter screen width: 800
Enter screen height: 600
Enter screen bpp: 8
Enter '1' for fullscreen '0' for windowed: 0

Your GLMark08 Score is 18 ^_^

I see you used the VESA driver. Here are some times for comparison.

VESA mode: Gf6200 / Gf8400 (fps)
Gears ~= 70 / 77
Tunnel ~= 8.63 / 9.20
Gearbox ~= 3.3 / 3.6
Reflect ~= 39.4 / 44.7

Nouveau drivers: Gf6200 / Gf8400 (fps)
Gears ~= 1150 / 1470
Tunnel ~= 343 / 438
Gearbox ~= 184 / 338
Reflect ~= 890 / 943

This are the results for the GeForce4 with VESA mode:

Gears ~= 40.65 fps
Tunnel ~= 5.2 fps
Gearbox ~= 1.95 fps
Reflect ~= 22.5 fps
@cavemann ,

*ouch* that hurts :D. me wanna.

A neighborhood guy bought a new video card and was selling his Gf8400 on Craigslist. I got it real cheap :P

The speed is nice and the devs fixed the graphic corruptions, but on my system it seems a bit too unstable since the kernal change :(
Edit: (more unstable with some games)

So what do you have on your native setup?
@cavemann :

Yeah swapping things this way usually works splendid ;)

native setup is intel GMA 950 (no 3d), a GF315 (no output, so can't tell :D) and ocasionnaly i have acces to a machine with a nx4800 (but that is really unstable).
I have an IntelGMA system also. Unhappily my GMA4500 is not supported by AROS. As a matter of fact if I try to run native it crashes so hard that I have to remove and replace the battery before the laptop will boot again.

But it runs in VESA very nicely. I did not realize how nice until I compared it to the other VESA tests I did.

IntelGMA 4500m - VESA mode only(fps).
Gears ~= 95
Tunnel ~= 12.24
Gearbox ~= 4.9
Reflect ~= 54.6

Didn't want to be left that far behind so these are my VESA results under QEmu with a Radeon X1250:

Gears ~= 71.7 fps
Tunnel ~= 7.5 fps
Gearbox ~= 3.1 fps
Reflect ~= 39.25 fps
Running behind on forum checks...

Systemax (Uniwill) 223II0 laptop, 1.8 GHz P4M, 1 GB RAM, 80 GB Drive, Intel 855 (using VESA) gfx, Atheros mini-pci wireless card. Everything works very well. Will try to get the benchmarks for video and add them as well.

Almost forgot: Running Icaros 1.5.1

Ahaa... your first post. Welcome to ArosWorld. I am not familiar with that laptop, but it sounds nice. Looking forward to the benchmarks, if you get a chance :)
