Default Good work on 96.29

Thanks, guys.

96.29 fixes google Earth on the 6200 64 MB turbocache for me.

As opposed to the 9x.xx beta versions it also runs my Xorg.conf fine (the betas were hanging unless I went back to a plain Xorg.conf).

Also like the new stuff in nvidia-settings. Didn't try the i2c stuff yet.

I too agree on a great upgrade on the Linux Nvidia driver!

twin view is so harmless to install now. It's built straight into the menu which is super easy to configure!

I love the new graphical re-design as well! Great job guys! Keep up the great work!

Indeed, the 9629 seem to fix the 'black screen variant' I reported in the forums. I seems to also fix some seemingly related vt switching bug and allows me to suspend to ram with 100% success (well, not quite, but the problem seems no more nvidia related, at least).

only suspend to disk fails now, either swsusp or suspend2: tried both, and both fail the same way. I'll certainly report about it later.
oh, and the DFP mode switching X crash bug also happens to me, but for now, I'll just run games windowed or at native resolution.

at last my laptop is seriously useable! thanks a lot nVidia linux team.
