Default Re: Where are the GeForce GT 240 Linux drivers?

I have gallium working on a different hard drive and the benchmark tool is showing 115 fps but it *feels* much smoother. Obviously I can't do vdpau with nouveau, but I'm seriously impressed given how alpha it is. It's also very nice to have KMS so logout scenarios where the server restarts doesn't leave me with a garbled screen and I can get nice boot splash
Neat!! I have GF8 hardware and sluggish compiz as well (pathetic, I know!) and was hoping nouveau helps there (havent tried it yet though). Also note that nouveau operates the card at the lowest performance possible. That could easily give you a factor of five in benchmarks.

Do you have any other nouveau experiences to share? Tried any other (at least mildly demanding) OpenGL sstuff?
