Needless to say you are on your own and NO ONE will take responsability if something weird happens on your computers.

I won't be able to test them in the next 12 hours. Sorry.

Thank you !!! My Geforce 5700 FX Ultra works now .

I can finally run 3D applications without hanging after a few seconds, nice. I haven't tried the use of shaders yet, but I'm sure that will work as well. I hope the final drivers will work even better.

And of course I'm aware I am using Beta drivers and it's my own responsibility if something goes wrong

Thanks again

[edit]
Wow , the control panel is amazing.

These drivers seem to be even better than I expected. I haven't tried them yet to see if they solve the X lockups everybody are talking about.

/me look teh watch... 4 hours to go...

http://www.minion.de/files/nvidia-in...1.0.2-2.6.diff

the installer patch refused to work so in my rush to get it up and running I just copied the other files manually

first time starting xfree I got a nice hardlock
2nd attempt it started with a somewhat garbled screen, switched back to vesa fb, same corruption

its as if the screen is being wrapped over, but its not

will look into it but currently using 4620 kernel module, 4496 glx + xfree driver

the settings util is rather nice
would be esp nice if they could merge it with something like nvclock

will get some screenshots up

fixed it
bothered to read the stuff on minion.de and copied across the stuff in the tls dirs instead
the top screenshot is now outdated ;/

from what ive just run I get 7fps more in q3
yay \o/
the setup util saves its settings at ~/.nvidia-settings-rc
apart from that it doesn't really do much

will test more stuff tomorrow

just for the record it wasnt first posted on nforcershq but it was posted here in another thread.

another member of this forum gave me the link but i'll leave his name out so if he wishes to tell everyone he can.


also they work great over here :-) still use opengl 1.4 though and not 1.5 yet....thats probably going to be in the 1.0-5xxx release though i'd guess.

They work with Mupen, which was all that is really important to me.

1280x1024 Zelda64 (OOT) running with 4X AA is bliss.

NWN works as well.

Thank you for your time,
Frank Russo

Just wanted to drop a note here.

It work very well with the minon patch for 2.6 w/VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 440 AGP 8x] (rev a2)

Playing around with nvidia-settings and it is awsome. I am not a real game player I like foobilliards and such. There are no more jagged edges, AWSOME, even with the puny little card that I have. I get 9,650+ FPS also.

Thanks .....................
