I'm also missing the changelog. I can't find it in the README anywhere.

In particular, what was done to get the GL_EXT_paletted_texture to work on the FX cards? And what, if any, implications does it have on the 3D performance?

Smile DVI output now working.

This driver fixed my lack of DVI output on my QuadroFX 500 card. Thanks for the new version!

Anyone running this latest driver with any DCC applications? If so are the results better than the previous version?

Installed on a RedHat 7.3 box with a quadro board. Previously, performance with stereo enabled in the driver but the card in 'normal' display mode was much, much slower (I'd say 3-10x slower), than when the card was placed into stereo. This was when drawing out fairly large data sets (on small sets it wasn't very noticiable).

With the new driver things work very nicely now! Thanks much for fixing this. It makes it a pleasure to look at large 3D molecular structures in Maestro.

Unhappy 1.0-4496 released but still problems with 4gb of memory


Held much hope for the new drivers but they still have the same 4GB memory problem as below and I can still get X to lockup and run at 100% of cpu........

Ho Hummm One day perhaps

Default SBA

Just installed 4496 and although I have "options nvidia NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=1 NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1" in /etc/modules.conf, checking /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status shows that Side Band Addressing is not enabled. I also noticed that in glxgears I now get ~3500fps, whereas with 4363 I used to get ~4100fps.

I have a Athlon 2400+, via kt400 chipset and a GeForce4 Ti 4200 (AGP8x).

I experience several random freezes while using those drivers in simple 2D Desktop Use.

Those freezes are really random, that means it can happens after several minutes, several hours or several days.

Computer just freezes, Magic Sys Req Keys do not even answer.

Unfortunately, I don't know a way to submit efficient bug reports/coredumps/logs.

I am using a 2.4.20-gentoo-r5 kernel and latest nvidia kernel / GLX modules, Xinerama thanks to a TNT and a GF2Ti
but with the previous 4363 version it hapenned too.

(Crashes do not happen with nv Xfree drivers.)

If anyone could give me any methods to help debugging, I would be happy :-)

Default Still waits forever before login screen comes up!

Hi I'm running:

Athlon 1700xp (1400mhz)
Redhat 9(shrike)
Kernel 2.4.20-x
Nvidia geforce 3 ti 500
512mb ram
GNOME Desktop
no gui mods or kernel upgrades since installing RHL9

As with the previous driver 4363 the newer driver also make my boot up time from the end of services initialization to the pop-up of the gui screen or log out and login of the gui take about 4 minutes.

The comp just sits there for 4 minutes with a blank screen and I'm forced to wait!

Whats the deal is it the drivers or the config of my x11 or gnome desktop?

Anyone got a clue?

Andy can you offer any insight here I'm sure you've gotten this problem from others I saw them posted for the 4363 version of the drivers...

Default Not impressed.

I really hope that, one day you guys will release a version of your linux drivers that will actually install without bringing down the whole X windows system. I just tried installing the latest drivers and had to resort to inserting my linux install CD and restoring the default drivers from there.

I know the linux user base is probably not as important as the windows market, but that's no reason for such shoddy work.
