Default Several Issues with 177.80

Firstly... Thanks for the work done already.

Now... A couple of problems still persist.

System

Nvidia 660
Fedora 9 x86_64
kde 4.1.2

1) There are still are still rendering issues on the system tray.
2) When gtk-qt-engine is applied so that all gtk apps use kde themes, OpenOffice toolbars and menu item disappear when the mouse is passed over them.

I'm still seeing some text rendering problems with firefox. They aren't severe, but they are there.

No problems with KDE 3.5.10 and on board GeForce 6150.
KDE 4.1.2 and GeForce 8800GTS, screen freezes and everything seems all jumbled up, CTRL-ALT-F1 followed by CTRL-ALT-F7 restores the display. I'll disable screen blanking to see if that has any effect.
Using openSUSE 11.1 Beta2 x86_64 and vanilla kernel 2.6.27-git1, was also happening on 2.6.27-rc9-git1 and driver 177.78.
I shall upgrade the kernel and driver on another box with GeForce 8600 and see if it behaves the same.

BTW the driver works with xen virtualization built into the kernel -- not mentioned in the release notes.


Doesn't appear to happen on the box with the 8600 and so far OK on the 8800GTS with screen blanking turned off.
I spoke too soon, it just happened on the 8800GTS box, all others are OK.

Problem is kwin dying only on the GeForce 8800GTS. Switched to KDE 3 with no further problems. Must check KDE 4.1.2 on another box with a built-in GeForce 6150.

This is a KDE bug and unrelated to the nvidia drivers: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=158094

I have exactly the same two problems!!. The OOo one is veeeeeery annoying. OpenOffice becomes unusable.

It seems that nvidia property drivers is conflicting with the interests of several companies. Nokia: Bad performance with QT4. Sun: OpenOffice becomes unusable.
They should seriously consider openning their drivers. Anyway, this is just a personal thought.
