NVIDIA Linux driver 1.0-4349 has been released. Go grab it at http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=li...ia32_1.0-4349.
It features the new NVIDIA Linux installer, so please try it out!
Something that worries me, from the README for this new version:
bwkaz: Your system will work with the installer. If it doesn't for some very strange reason (and i'd like to hear about it...), you can do an --extract-only and get the source wrapper with Makefile that way.
If people find that the installer doesn't provide what they need, hen please let us know. Feedback is always useful in helping decide future plans. :)
I'm giving it a try on my Slackware system.
Andy: it's quite nice to have an nVidia employee helping us all out here. That's good customer service, and it's part of why I'm ditching ATI. Keep it up!
I really do HOPE that video-out problems have been fixed, else I have to stay on RH 8 and 3123 drivers :(
This generic setup looks very cool, so now even linux n00bs can install it :)
I works like a charm on Slack 8.1
The installer is simply a wrapper around the old tar.gz/rpms and it may (at your option) compile the kernel-specific part.
Hope this version is more stable than the previous (more or less unusable) one.... time will tell I guess :)
g.krist - if they haven't, please let me know.
After about 5 minutes of testing it would appear that the two biggest problems I experienced with the 4191 drivers have been fixed.
The 2D slowdown is gone as far as i can tell.
I was able to remotely display an OpenGL app running on the SGI down the hall !!!!!
Has anyone tried this w/ RH9? ... the readme says it should work, but I would like to hear some first hand experiences b4 I upgrade.
Thank You NV.

-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: Yes)
-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;
this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
ERROR: Unable to find the kernel header files for the currently running kernel.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel header files for your
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel header
files are installed, you may specify the kernel include path with the
'--kernel-include-path' commandline option.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
