Now NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9629-pkg1.run runs pretty fine. Glxgears was very slow when I installed this driver for the first time. But now, after installing xserver-xorg-dev (1:1.1.1-0ubuntu12) glxgears runs smoothly
EDIT3: I uninstalled nvidia-glx as claimed in http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=72490:
Now Glxgears is very very slow.
Unfortunately Compiz doesn't work with 1.0-9629, don't know why (Compiz doesn't tell me anything). The Compiz window borders just aren't loaded.
Sadly when I'm not able to start Compiz I won't see those nasty jitters any more. Maybe you could support me get Compiz up and running?
I tried the following versions:
- 0.3.2 from the freedesktop.org website
They behaved the same.
EDIT: How may I prevent the "nvidia" module from being loaded, I need to do rmmod nvidia every time I boot. I tried adding it to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist but the system didn't boot any more with this entry. [SOLVED]
EDIT2: no textures
any more in Neverball with 1.0-9629
