Yes, it's fixed, thanks. Everything was laggy as hell with the old driver (don't know the version, the one that is currently shipped with ubuntu 10.10 beta).

However, the beta driver doesn't detect my internal notebook display anymore... I have a Sony Vaio S with a GeForce 310m running Ubuntu 10.10 Beta. As soon as the X server starts, the internal display turns off and I can't even see the internal display in the Nvidia X Server settings.

any help would be appreciated

Read the stickies.

Generate a bug report. Attach the bug report to a new post along with a problem description.

Hmm... I installed the 260.19.06 version and it doesn't work here :-(. It hangs on a black screen with a underline "_" on upper left of the screen when I tried load xorg. The capslock led doesn't light on when I press the capslock key (hard freeze state). I tried with 1.9.0 and 1.8.1.902 xorg-server versions.

Edit: I am using uvesafb for framebuffer because with the default framebuffer the video freaks out if we change for console mode (ctrl+alt+FX). I don't know whether this is the cause of the problem.

I've attached the log, but the Xorg.0.log doesn't show nothing (0 bytes). My computer is a Sony Vaio CW27fx.

For me this is still relevant. Even scrolling in OOo Calc and Firefox is broken. Before reboot all worked fine.

Also for me this bug still seems to be present. Today I upgraded Ubuntu 10.04 (which includes xserver 1.7) to Ubuntu 10.10 (xserver 1.9) and the whole system seems to be unresponsive in a way. When scrolling in no matter which application the framerate drops by 30-50%. I observe this with the compiz-benchmark plugin. It does not matter whether I disable or enable font anti-aliasing.
The performance under gtkperf also seems to be bad. About 14 secs at 100 test rounds.
With another tool, which is called tom2d http://dld.tomshardware.com/get/87f6...4caa53af/59803)(, actually a 2d drawing benchmark for windows (running on wine) by tom's hardware, the performance dropped by 75% (2000 points with xserver 1.7, 500 with xserver ver. 1.9)
Many some other people could try this out, or the nvidia developers could take a closer look at it again...

Got the latest driver? I really like the performance of Firefox 4 in Ubuntu 10.10 with the 260 drivers.
