Slow using which Xorg driver?

nouveau(0)?

Blacklisted.

vesa(0)?
fbdev(0)?
modeset(0)?

How do I determine which one is in use?

Whichever one you see abundant repeats of in Xorg.0.log, especially
if it's on any lines that contain the string "onnected".

No such line, but plenty with VESA listed.

VESA is creepy crawly slow.

Sounds like what I'm seeing.

Could it be that you're running 13.2 and
xf86-video-modesetting needs to be installed.

Nope, this is leap422.

If TW, 42.1 or 42.2, what is the output from 'lspci -nnk | grep -A5
VGA'?

# lspci -nnk | grep -A5 VGA
60:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation G84GL
[Quadro FX 1700] [10de:040f] (rev a1)
Subsystem: NVIDIA Corporation Device [10de:049a]
Kernel modules: nouveau

Looks like it may be just a wee bit too ancient, at 9 years of age[1], for modeset(0) support, leaving you stuck with what you have unless you install the non-free driver or un-blacklist nouveau, which is disappointing, as my 8 month older G84 (GeForce 8600GT[2]) _is_ supported by modeset(0).
