Did you reboot afterwards? Mine wasn't fixed until I rebooted (7900GTX)

Please note that the problem is fixed in the 169.09 NVIDIA Linux graphics driver release, not the 169.07 one. You may need to reboot after installing the updated driver.

Is this expected to fix the multi-cpu lockup issues also?

Default Re: 169.07 Ubuntu 7.10 Fan at %100

I tried installing 169.09 with Envy but it doesn't give that as an option; 169.07 is the latest one referenced. Does anyone know if there is a way for Envy to refresh or update to give the new driver as an option (automatic recognition of my card doesn't work so I need to use the manual selection)?

Also, if I use the command prompt to install the updated driver, do I need to uninstall 169.07 first (which I had installed with Envy)?

Thanks!

Edit: I typed the wrong version number. I am using using 169.09. I did reboot and it is still at 100%. I am running a fully updated Ubuntu 64bit install with Nvidia 169.09 drivers. My card is a EVGA 8800 GTS 640 meg SSC.
That's odd, I'm running 7.10 64bit with the same exact card, and the .09s fixed it for me. I wonder what's different...

Thanks for fixing this bug Nvidia, it's been a month but I guess it could have taken longer.

Works in OpenSuSE 10.3 and 11 Alpha 1 with KDE4.

I got the same problem. Just edit (as root) the file /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/Envy/classes.py and replace the statement nvmanlatest = '169.07' with nvmanlatest = '169.09' and you're done!

Note: I had to first uninstall the former NVidia driver via Envy and then install the new one to get the X server to start on boot. But now I'm at last rewarded with silence

HTH

Oh my God... Quiet at last... Thanks for the assist Richard. Your instructions worked like a charm. For those of you as clueless as me... you can edit as root by opening the file which needs to be edited "classes.py" by typing "sudo gedit classes.py" at a terminal command prompt. This will open the text editor gedit with root powers. You can then make the one change in the version number which is a short distance down the file; then save and close.

Next open Envy and if you select "Install the NVIDIA driver Manually", you should see "version 169.09" listed at the top of the options at the bottom of the page. Select "Apply" and Envy will uninstall version 169.07 and install 169.09, then prompt you for a restart (which you should do).

Thanks again Richard.

I am using 169.09 with a 8600GT (Leadtek Winfast PX8600GT THD) in Ubuntu Hardy, and still have 100% fan 100% of the time.
