Thanks AaronP - I assume that it should not take too long for this to hit the Unbuntu 10.10 repository

Cheers

Ubuntu does usually not update versions during a release cycle. This is due to the release policy of ubuntu and not in nvidia hands.

You might use, on your own risk, a ppa such as the vdpau-ppa or xorg-edgers.

Kind regards,

Fuchs

owise1 - there is not a lot Nvidia devs can do to get the driver into Ubuntu..

Hopefully Ubuntu devs will get this driver into their repos.

(ps I imagine Arch Linux will have it in days (as least in AUR))

Agree that might be the case normally but in this case ubuntu made a stuff up releasing the old driver that would not work with Xorg 1.9.

Not nvidia's problem of course and thanks to them for the very quick update

@luk1don: I haven't forgotten about 96.43.*, I just haven't had much time to work on it lately. I'm hoping to get started on xserver 1.8 support soon, and xserver 1.9 support shortly thereafter.
Thank you Aaron.
Well unfortunately it didn't solve my problem. I use Geforce FX5200 card with the latest driver (173.14.28), my Ubuntu (10.10 with xorg 1.9) works very very slow (I hear the hard drive working hard and any movement of the mouse takes a lot of time until it reflects on the sceeen).

Which logs should I paste?

Hello all. Has the new 96.43* driver released? Seems like it is. If so, where can I download it? I can't seem to find it in the official driver website.

Thank you so much AaronP!

It's a prerelease, so it's not up on the official website yet. You can get it here:
