Re: Linux driver for GTX 460
I just got an MSI GTX 460 1 GB and briefly had a Palit GTX 460 1GB (which worked, but which I sent back because the heat sink/fan was considerably inferior to the Palit cards that reviewers got). Both cards work fine in Windows, but in Linux only 2D works reliably. Triggering 3D with anything including compositing leads to a condition where video is still displayed, media that was playing continues, the mouse cursor is vsible and can be moved around, but almost nothing responds to any other input. This is on Arch Linux with kernel 188.8.131.52 or 2.6.35-rc6, Xorg server 184.108.40.2062, and Nvidia binary driver 256.35. I can change to a console via Ctrl-Alt-(F1-F6) and kill or restart the X display manager, after which things work again for a while. The only way to avoid the problem is to avoid 3D entirely.
