I understand and I typically use VDPAU exclusively. But when you have a GTX 580 and run QCAD (or any other CAD program), you will definitely notice the OC on files with multiple layers. Period. 910/4200 MHz @ 1.138v is decent, 1000/4500 MHz @ 1.213v under water would be even better.

Why not flash your BIOS then if your using it that often at those speeds? BTW I wouldn't say "any CAD program" as my GTX-580 absolutely flies with complex models in Pro/E Wildfire.

I have flashed the BIOS (hence the 910/4200 screenshot). However, I would prefer to:

1. Dynamically set OC parameters to lower clocks via .xinitrc for casual use. Logout, login, done.
2. Determine max stable OC settings without having to tediously flash incremental BIOS changes.

I guess there is still no XrandR 1.2 support in these drivers ?

Workaround: use nvidia-settings 260.19.21 tarball. Thanks to zbiggy here.

I have no idea, but:

Code:
[artem@localhost ~]$ xrandr -v
xrandr program version       1.3.3
Server reports RandR version 1.3

This flags show Xorg supported version, not driver supported version.

glxext.h also appears corrupted in this beta. Can't compile against it due to a massive empty space where code should be (and a half-complete ifdef).

When running it on my Sony VAIO VPCS13V9E (GeForce 310M), it doesn't kernel-oops as it did with 260.19.21 (An issue mentioned here.

However, the "Black VT Screen bug" is still present: once X is launched, the backlight is disabled on all other VTs (Alt+Fxx), resulting in completely black screens for those.
