Somewhat, I updated the question.

comment nVidia performance with newer X and newer driver abysmal with Compiz
libcompizconfig0 is present now, and I could upgrade everything to 0.9.2, but I couldn't get the gconf configuration backend to work so I didn't actually manage to get compiz running with any sane options.

comment nVidia performance with newer X and newer driver abysmal with Compiz
Returning to a stable configuration means downgrading X from 2.9 to 2.7 - and everything dependent. It's not an easy path to take.

It seems this bounty is closing without a winner, and my problems still persist.

comment nVidia performance with newer X and newer driver abysmal with Compiz
libcompizconfig0 from experimental (0.9.2) has not yet been compiled for amd64, only i386. Hence I can't test compiz 0.9.2 yet.

comment nVidia performance with newer X and newer driver abysmal with Compiz
I've gone through the NvidiaGraphicsDrivers Debian page - mostly it contains very irrelevant info to this problem. I have an existing installation, I am using Debian packages and not running the binary packages from nVidia directly, etc. etc. The point is that I had a working and fast compiz before, which turned slow when upgrading X and nvidia-glx. OpenGL is still fast, so it's not about that.

Flags --sm-disable or/and --loose-binding do not help. Neither does "UseEvents" "false".

comment nVidia performance with newer X and newer driver abysmal with Compiz
I have no anti-aliasing in my terminals and having used "--loose-binding" before, I am dubious that it will help this time. The use of "UseEvents" "false" also doesn't seem relevant according to the forum posts. But I will retry these options nevertheless a bit later.

"Force synchronization between X and GLX" option is for fixing window redraw problems and can only reduce performance instead of increase it. However, I tested it both ways.

comment nVidia performance with newer X and newer driver abysmal with Compiz
The compiz from debian experimental is 0.9.2 git something, but unfortunately I couldn't find the libcompizconfig packages there for 0.9.2. Which made it uninstallable - so I haven't tried 0.9.2. If you can confirm somehow that 0.9.2 is installable from experimental, I might try it again.

comment Tiny linux box with 2xGbLAN, WLAN and 10MB/s AES throughput?
I stumbled upon this as well (later on). It seems pretty nice, but in the end I value out-of-the-box installability without any flash or bootloader oddities. I like to regularily update the kernel and it's nicer if it doesn't have to be a special kernel to run correctly. So, I'm still pretty happy with my purchase. As for USB wireless modules that are stable in host-AP without proprietary drivers, it might be that the cards supported by carl9170 are the only choices - so finding ar9170 based adapters seems like a really good bet.

No worries. It seems that host-AP in general is a bit too flaky still, especially when trying to get multiple BSSID's at the same time. There does seem to be some support for host AP on rt2x00 with USB, but it's really flaky right now.

Got the box today. The wireless radio is RT2870 USB chipset - and rt2x00 driver doesn't support "host AP" on USB chipsets. Bummer :-(

Bought the box - I will see in two weeks whether I can get "host AP" working on it. First thought about ordering it directly, then found a reseller in Finland and finally found out that the main store I get most of my hardware from actually resells the box, I just missed it for some reason. Thanks for all the info!

Found a HOWTO about the AP-mode, but it's a bit iffy - plausible, but not confirmed. Thanks! rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/AP-mode_Howto

comment How many megabytes per second may I expect from a gigabit USB 2.0 network card under linux?
Thanks, I am aware of that. The question is how fast will it go - it's clear that the performance is at most something like 30%-40% of Gig-E, but it is important for me to know how much less.

Looks very interesting, thanks! 1.6GHz Atom can do a bit more than 10 megabytes per second with AES-256, so that fits the bill nicely. Now I need to find out what the WLAN card actually is...

Perfect, managed to miss that package for some odd reason. Thanks.

comment how to get NFS properly working in Debian again
NEEDS_STATD=no fixes nfs-common init script starting, but when attempting to export the filesystems, mountd fails similarily to statd. Hence I think your suggestions do not work for nfs servers. And I'd rather avoid nfs4. But, your answer was helpful, nonetheless.

comment HD web cam that has good Linux support
Thank you, just what I was looking for. It seems the same camera is called Logitech Sphere AF in europe and it costs somewhat more.
