Anyway, so in ubuntu you'd have to add this:
Code:

options nvidia_new NVreg_Mobile=1 NVreg_RegistryDwords="PerfLevelSrc=0x2222"

in /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-kernel-nkc
Mobile is probably not needed but I like having it to check that the arguments actually worked.

Finally I can use my card! Thanks to everyone involved.

What did I say again? I was right.

Do you want to retract your harsh comment against me?

well mine still flickers every so often with 169.04. it only seems to do it on the 90W power adapter (2GHz). on the travel adapter (65W) it only runs 667 or 800 MHz, and I don't remember ever seeing a flicker with that adapter.

On my openSUSE 10.3 I rebuild new kernel 2.6.23.9 with Knoppix's .config file. It's look like work for me. I don't see any freezes or lookups last week. I hope it's has work in future...

PS: Something was wrong in CPU section of default .config file, I think. On my MSI notebook when booting Suse's default kernel without "acpi=off" in kernel command line, system is crashed and lockup. But with new .config system work fine.
