I don't know ... you'd have to wait for one of the NVIDIA employees to answer that.

So let's wait for an official answer.

On the other hand, I'm sure that Nvidia will not decide to leave lots of its own customers out of using the latest version of the most widespread Linux desktop environment!

Dear Nvidia, could you please give us some answer?

Try to prove through real facts, not only words, that Linus was wrong!
Otherwise, don't complain if people shout at you!

Thank you for your answer.
But how can I track the bug? Isn't there a bug tracker somewhere?

Only support for new kernels and X servers and fixes for critical bugs are accepted in the legacy release branches. Since this is not a regression from 173.14.43 and only affects performance of new software, it will not be fixed.

Hello. Sorry - I don't understand how this could not be considered a critical bug. It brings a main stream distribution to its knees making it unusable. How bad does it have to be to be considered critical ? I assume from the fact that this has been fixed in the current driver, that the nature of the problem and the solution are well understood by nVidia. This sort of negative response will not do nVidia any favours in the Linux community where closed source drivers are already viewed with a degree of discomfort. Would you please reconsider your position on this fault ? I also have a system that is unusable because of this problem.

I would use Nouveau for sure (and I wouldn't even have taken into account using the proprietary drivers) if it wasn't for a serious bug that affects the former and prevents from using GNOME Shell (see Bug 745202 - gnome-shell does not display correctly with NV3x adapters - multicolor corruption of panel, Shell-style menus and text [nvfx] [bugzilla.redhat.com] and Testing request: owners of older GeForce cards (NV30 and NV40 families) [forums.fedoraforum.org]).

Why are you insisting on using modern software on your very old hardware?

It's akin to blaming Microsoft that Windows 7 doesn't run at all on your Pentium III PC with 256MB of RAM or that Android 4.x doesn't run on your 4 yo smartphone which only has 128MB of RAM. It's either time to upgrade, or use appropriate versions of software, e.g. you can easily run XFCE with nouveau.

And please stop peddling that ill-famed Linus Torvalds's "F*ck you" video clip, you are irking the people who are here to help you (I mean NVIDIA programmers).

If you have anything to say to NVIDIA, talk to Jen-Hsun Huang directly.

Aaron and other NVIDIA guys here do not choose which products to support.

The thread is closed.
