Can anyone tell me if/when Linux support for this card is planned?
I am really looking forward to testing the vdpau support on my HTPC.
I have a 230M and am getting that same WAIT error. I'm running gentoo with xserver 1.7 though. However, when I run ubuntu 9.10 I am able to run with the 185.whatever drivers that comes standard without issues. I also was able to install 190.42 via the nvidia ppa and everything worked correctly as well. Have you tried the ppa (https://launchpad.net/~nvidia-vdpau/+archive/ppa)?
Do the standard ubuntu drivers work? (at least it appeared you're running ubuntu)...
