xorg 7.1 under x86_64 status ?
 
Hello,

I have tried some "tricks" to have good fonts under xorg 7.1 (without Xgl which I don't want) without success in firefox.

Could someone explains what has to be done before the next nvidia release ?

I think the situation is worse under 64 bits than it is under 32 bits.

Thank in advance :)

It should be the same as the normal (as in i386) X.org 7.1 hack.
Just disable RenderAccel (Option "RenderAccel" "false") and your fonts should be fine.

EDIT: The next driver release -should- be compatible with 7.1, and with a little bit of luck, it should include full AiGLX support. (FC6, here I come!)

Cheers,

Gecko-based browsers still fall apart with Xorg 7.1 and the current drivers, no matter what your settings are. If you use Opera it's much better but there are still a couple of websites that have missing text. *me wants his epiphany back*

Does anyone know how long we have to wait for 7.1 compatible drivers? I had just gotten used to XGL when I upgraded my Gentoo x86_64 laptop to xorg 7.1 and then I couldn't use it anymore.

I could go back to 7.0 but hey, always move forward, never back. :)

An Xorg-7.1 compatible driver will be released in the near future.

Thanks,
Lonni

Considering how ridiculously overdue it is, I think the "whine" is justified.

That's really a great new :-)
I have downgraded to 7.0 because nothing was really perfectly working with 7.1 (but yes, under 32 bits it does). I hope the near futur is "near" ;-)

Can someone define the "near future" for me and the others? It's "near future" since months, you know :)

The windows 9xxx driver is out, so the chances for a linux one are rising... I would say 2-4 weeks.:)
