I guess I have a problem with the functioning of my Nvidia card. The symptoms are like following. When using the command
vblank_mode=0 optirun -b primus glxspheres
the fan is turning faster and faster and after a while, the image of the spheres is getting blurred and glxspheres blocks with little points appearing on the spheres ; then I need to kill it in the console. I have some screen captures of this, but unfortunately I do not have enough reputation points to post them here.
Does anyone have any idea of why this is happening?
Thanks in advance for any suggestion.
