Exclamation 1.0-8762 first impressions


Thanks to Nvidia Linux Team for new driver.

Mode selection issue for my DFP is fixed so I removed _75 from my modes: (brought back 1024x768_75 to 1024x768) and nvidia driver keeps itself correct value of 75Hz now.

There is new bug: nvidia driver displays too much video memory allocated for my geforce 6150. I have always set in bios 64MB for video.
In 8756 I had:
(--) NVIDIA(0): VideoRAM: 65536 kBytes
In 8762 I have now:
(--) NVIDIA(0): VideoRAM: 262144 kBytes
I did not change anything in bios settings, I still has 64MB of RAM selected for IGP.

Bug 222895 (which appear when XVMC_DEBUG=2 is set) looks still not fixed:
Warnings reported here:
NV-XVMC (WARN): failed to allocate AGP DMA buffer
NV-XVMC (WARN): allocated framebuffer DMA buffer instead
NV-XVMC (WARN): failed to allocate subpicture in AGP memory
still show up. However this one:
NV-XVMC (ERROR): Failed to unmap MPEG engine registers
does not appear now. I will check this more later.

Thanks for fixing mode selection issue. Hope other issues won't be issue soon.
