Default anyone with 180.18 and 8200?

I've yet to be able to get the newest driver to install on my PC (with 8200 and Ubuntu Intrepid). I always boot into low-rez graphics mode. Anyone had any success with this config?

And yes, I've tried all the suggestions for un-installing everything else before.. it has not worked for me. Wondering if that is somehow 8200-related.

Hi zim2dive,
The 180.18 driver definitely loads and works for me with my 8200-based board with Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid), but as you have read in the thread that I created, flash is screwed up and 2d performance is abysmal. I'm at work, so I can't post any of the relevant configuration files, but for reference, my xorg.conf file is just a direct copy of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.failsafe file with the driver changed from "vesa" to "nvidia". I tried adding many of the options listed in the release notes for the driver, but none seemed to have any effect on my flash issue, so I ended up with just the modification listed above. If you have any luck getting things working properly please fill me in!

I've the same abysmal 2D Performance with the Geforce 8300 IGP on an ASUS M3N78-PRO here on Mandriva 2009 and Mandriva Cooker. I tested it with Kernel 2.6.27 and Kernel 2.6.28.
But i have this problem since the 177.xx Series drivers! Switching Back to 173.xx works fine for me, but this driver version don't compile on Kernel 2.6.28.

This problem seems to happen only on Geforce 8200/8200 IGP chipsets. I have also a Geforce 7050 based Abit Mainboard which worked fine with this driver here!

The only improvement I've found under Intrepid is to set System-Prefs-Appearance-Visual Effects to None.. that got me from a crawling baby to a stumbling toddler level of Flash performance.

If you're using Flash 10, have you tried enabling/disabling "hardware acceleration" (right click a flash video -> settings)? As far as I know with Compiz enabled Flash falls back to software rendering.
