7167 and nwn
Since I installed the 7167 proprietary driver, nwn doesn't work anymore. After a random time (often even *before* I can play), it just quits to X.
But I just can't find any way to know what happens.

When using the previous versions of the drivers, I had no problems.

Configuration : kernels 2.6.{10,11.*,12-rc1] on debian sid, the computer is an Athlon and the card is a Geforce4.

Is it just that driver giving you the problem? Not many linux users around and sometimes its hard to find people with the know how to fix the problem. I cant help you because I havent used linux myself..

Occasionally some times for some reason I lose 3d acceleration, I blame my crappy mandrake install :P, anyways, with stuff like UT2004, it just sends it right back to X too. Try glxinfo, in the output for it, see if it says direct rendering. I believe if its no it can cause problems like this but I am a noob and not sure :P If that is the case, I would try a reinstall of the new drivers, and if they are still broke, I am sure other people are having it, so in the meantime can go back to the old ones for now.
