Default Re: 180.22 the best drtiver ever?

I have 7600GT PCI-X, and I had some X freezing issues with 180.22, which I didn't had with Beta versions of 180 driver. I can unfreez X by unpluging and pluging back in my USB keyboard. Then X unfreezes or restarts (don't know if this is because I pressed few times ctrl+alt+backspace before unplugging keyboard). Please nvidia devs, fix this.

Edit:
I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 with 2.6.28 x86_64 kernel that I compiled with Core2 optimization.

That problem can be mostly fixed on Hardy (still some terminal corruption when not forcing Powermizer to full speed) using AaronP's compiz update to Hardy (which is included in Intrepid): https://launchpad.net/~aplattner/+archive. I don't know if it works for 64bit though.

Default Re: 180.22 the best driver ever?

Thanks for the info. I'd already worked out I can also stop that by setting IPP=1 or by turning off PixmapCache and GlyphCache. I would have compromised with that, but there's still issues with suspend and Powermizer.

Anyways, as I actually have more problems than in 177.82, I can't see any benefit (for me) in using 180.22 at all, and have decided to sit out this release.

I guess the main reason I'm on 8.04 is that it's an LTS release with 18 months of 'support/updates' and I don't need to bother with the upgrade treadmill. The only thing I actually consider upgrading outside of that is the nVidia drivers. But, hey, that's just me and 180.22 is the best driver ever for some....

Cheers

Default Re: 180.22 the best driver ever?

on my system, ubuntu 8.10 amd64 4gb 8600gt.

It is quite stable, but can somebody confirm, if the browsing/mouse scrolling with firefox at http://www.pconline.com.cn and http://music.sohu.com still laggy? I had tested the websites with firefox 3.0.5, 3.1b3, 3.2a, all the same, too laggy and choppy!

thx
