Problem with graphic

Postby trabbit » 23. Sep 2010, 14:53

Hi,
I have some problem with graphic on Ubuntu 10.04 guest system (my host is Windows XP).
I installed "guest additionals" and turned on 3D acceleration but efficiency it really low. "Glxgears" test gives:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
trabbit@trabbit-desktop:~$ glxgears
238 frames in 5.0 seconds
299 frames in 5.0 seconds
299 frames in 5.0 seconds
299 frames in 5.0 seconds
299 frames in 5.0 seconds
299 frames in 5.0 seconds
299 frames in 5.0 seconds
299 frames in 5.0 seconds
XIO:  fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0.0"
      after 18466 requests (18466 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
trabbit@trabbit-desktop:~$

I tested other distributions of Linux (PClinuxOS 2010-KDE; PClinuxOS 2010-GNOME), they give the same poor results as Ubuntu 10.04.
Strange is a fact that CAElinux2008 gives:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
 [trabbit@localhost ~]$ glxgears
3806 frames in 5.0 seconds = 755.812 FPS
4420 frames in 5.1 seconds = 872.355 FPS
4290 frames in 5.0 seconds = 852.559 FPS
4420 frames in 5.0 seconds = 877.688 FPS
4420 frames in 5.1 seconds = 872.490 FPS
4420 frames in 5.1 seconds = 869.656 FPS
4420 frames in 5.0 seconds = 878.607 FPS
4420 frames in 5.0 seconds = 875.490 FPS
4379 frames in 5.0 seconds = 871.590 FPS
4420 frames in 5.0 seconds = 876.849 FPS
4420 frames in 5.0 seconds = 875.527 FPS
4420 frames in 5.1 seconds = 874.442 FPS
4420 frames in 5.0 seconds = 882.023 FPS
4420 frames in 5.1 seconds = 872.358 FPS
4420 frames in 5.0 seconds = 878.688 FPS
4427 frames in 5.0 seconds = 881.875 FPS
4420 frames in 5.1 seconds = 874.812 FPS
X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
[trabbit@localhost ~]$

I asked CAElinux's autor about it but he don't remember what he installed to make graphic better. CAElinux2008 is last 32bits version. Newest are 64bits and in this case situation looks differently(as he told me).
What i should install on my Ubuntu 10.04 to make graphic better.
Best Regards,
Chris
P.S. Sorry for my poor English :?

Hi again,
i installed the new version of VB (VirtualBox-3.2.10-66523-Win.exe) and reinstalled guest additionals
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
trabbit@trabbit-desktop:~$ cd Desktop/
trabbit@trabbit-desktop:~/Desktop$ sudo sh VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run
[sudo] password for trabbit:
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing VirtualBox 3.2.10 Guest Additions for Linux.........
VirtualBox Guest Additions installer
Removing installed version 3.2.10 of VirtualBox Guest Additions...
tar: Record size = 8 blocks
Uninstalling old VirtualBox DKMS kernel modules ...done.
Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modules
Doing non-kernel setup of the Guest Additions ...done.
You should restart your guest to make sure the new modules are actually used

Installing the Window System drivers
Installing X.Org Server 1.7 modules ...done.
Setting up the Window System to use the Guest Additions ...done.
You may need to restart the hal service and the Window System (or just restart
the guest system) to enable the Guest Additions.

Installing graphics libraries and desktop services components ...done.
trabbit@trabbit-desktop:~/Desktop$

Unfortunately still have the same problem.
Maybe...somebody could help?

and
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
# make oldconfig && make prepare

and then
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `kernel/bounds.c', needed by `kernel/bounds.s'.  Stop.
make: *** [prepare0] Error 2

I tried many instructions from different linux forum and all doesn't work.
