Games playing too fast and have glitches not functioning correctly

I play Supertux and Secret Maryo Chronicles. With Fedora 35 Supertux has glitches power up and menu always scrolling. Secret Maryo plays so fast it is uncontrollable. I’ve tried installs from DNF, Snap and Flatpak. None work right. Could use some help!

Can you check if you have the errors also when you boot with kernel 5.15 ? Pressing esc or shift after boot.

You are on fedora 35 with the 5.16.5 kernel and an nvidia GTX 1660 GPU, but are using the nvidia 470.103 driver. It appears your system can easily use the newer nvidia driver. My system has the same GPU and I have been using the nvidia 495+ drivers since fedora 35 was released. AFAIK the only reason for remaining on the 470 driver is that the 495+ driver has dropped support for some of the older GPUs.

I suggest that you replace the nvidia 470 driver with the newer 510.47 driver and see if that works for you. The newer driver has support for wayland that does not exist in the 470 driver, as well as more enhancements for the newer kernels.

Replacing it should be simple with sudo dnf swap akmod-nvidia-470* akmod-nvidia-510*. If you installed the 470 driver as sudo dnf install akmod-nvidia-470xx then you may need to modify the swap command above to swap 470xx with 510. You will of course need to reboot after that completes.

Note that fedora 35 may default to logging you in with wayland once the driver supports it, so you might need to manually switch back to using xorg at login.

I added the </> Preformatted text tags to your post above so it is more readable.
