Default Re: Nvidia 6200 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities

Forget that!
I've just played quake 4 on linux.
It crashed the first time on the level loading screen.
Next 2 times no problem. I finished the single player demo
and played 2 multiplayer games.

--edit, I just ran it again--
Still no problem. Included some screenies to prove.

Also, just fyi. I'm running Ubuntu 6.06.1 with the latest kernel
from the repos (namely 2.6.15-27-k7)

--EDIT: another edit--
It seems I was cheering a bit too early. While nVidia has definitly
improved the stability with release 9625, my doom 3 locked up the 2nd
time I ran it. I was able to play quake 3 and quake 4 without it locking
up though. Also, I experience ALOT of framedrops in quake 3. Not alot
in quake 4 and doom 3, but they are still there regularly. There are also
framedrops in any of the 3d screensavers in Ubuntu. I have included

Thanks nvidia for improving stability on the drivers, even though the
chipset incompatibility has not entirely been fixed yet. Keep up the good work.
