Unhappy "nvidia" vs "nv" on Dell D820 with Fedora 8

I just put Fedora 8 on my laptop, Dell D820, GeForce Go 7400.

Everything seemed to be working fine with the generic "nv" driver.

When I installed 100.14.19 driver from Nvidia, I encountered two problems.

1. There is a significant audio/video mis-sync in Mplayer.
2. Starting Mplayer produces a warning of:

"Sorry, your system does not support the XShape extension."

Installing the LIVNA rpm of 100.14.19, resolved the second problem with XShape. However the sync problem is still there.

Switching back to the generic "nv" driver resolves the sync problem.

Yeah, with fedora you have to use the stuff from livna if you want the drivers to work correctly.

Have you tried changing some of the options in mplayer's menu? There's a lot of things you can change there.

Make sure you have Load "extmod" in the "Module" section of xorg.conf.
