Why, let's give nVidia a little nudge! Sign the petition. I'm still a fan and I don't want to see nVidia lagging behind. 2638 signatures and counting...

Wow to many signatures man!! Mine is there now too!
I'm djdoo2 now! Cause netllama banned my previous account for no reason as the screen said to me!
I think it was cause I talked bad to a guy there how just wrote some posts here and all he did was to spit on our faces!

I did not ban your account. However, the reason it was banned by a different moderator was due to your hostile behavior towards others on this forum.

I'm sorry man! Sincerely!!
But this guy made me mad!!
I think I was too rude but the strange think is that my "bad" post was not removed and it was removed the one I explained why I talked like that!

djdoo, I have a 6600 under Ubuntu 7.04 and tested what you wrote in your post, except for the BackingStore line. There is no noticeable slowdown, and no blackwindow bug (at least I opened more than 20 fullscreen firefox windows, when my old setup couldn't handle even 10 windows).
The glitches that bother me are:
- tearing caused because there is no vsync (even if I configured beryl-manager to vsync) and there is an annoying slowdown of the mouse pointer (it feels less responsive when cpu is under high load).

Anyway, I will stay with this configuration to continue testing. Thanks for your work!

You can fix the tearing by enabling Vsync, AA and FSAA in either
nvidia-settings or using nvclock. I have a FAQ explaining how to do
this using nvidia-settings here.
http://www.opencompositing.org/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=440

I don't use nvidia-settings anymore because i run an 8800 and Nvidia
is too busy fixing windows stuff to get off their *ss's and fix the
black window bug or add fan control to nvidia-settings "which by they way
they have added to windows driver and heh, it doesn't work". So i use
nvclock to speed up my fan AND enable AA, FSAA and, Vsync. I haven't
written a fax for that yet but here is a simple command using nvclock.
Quote:
nvclock -a vsync=1 -a fsaa=8 -a aniso=4
You can replace those settings with the ones that are appropriate for
your video card. Settings for your particular card can be found in the driver
readme file, usually Appendix E.
http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...ppendix-e.html

You can use my FAQ and replace the nvidia-settings command with the
nvclock command, to start nvclock on login.

You will also want to adjust the texture filtering in beryl.
In beryl-settings go to.
General Options --> Main --> Texture Filter --> BEST
I hope this information helps you. I have gotten rid of all tearing and
textures look awesome. Text is really smooth even when cube is zoomed
out and at an angle.

P.S. It is amazing the response i got from Thunderbird "nvclock dev"
when i let him know that nvclock wasn't working properly with my
8800. In less than ONE DAY he had updated nvclock so that i can
control my fan speed AND monitor my video temp. If only we could
get the same kind of response from nvidia on the black window bug
or even add fan control to nvidia-settings. Wishful thinking huh........

How come I hadn't seen this before! In fact, without an open bug-tracking system it's impossible for the community (read paying customers) to know whether the bug they reported (as a result of their voluntary work as beta-testers) is being taken care of at all. Hmmm... but this also prevents them from knowing the real priorities that were assigned to each problem. Does this ring a bell to anyone other than me?

Cheers,

Well, keeping it closed source is not helping it either!

I'm closing this thread as it has veered way off topic in the past few days. If people wish to discuss their satisfaction (or dissatisfaction) with NVIDIA, they should do so in a new thread, created for that purpose.
