I guess we won't see nvidia opensourcing their drivers any time soon, however they could open up a bit more of their driver, especially on the kernel module side and there especially the AGP part which seems to be where the most problems come from and where the least interesting part of the driver magic is (it can't be doing anything that magic if the user has a choice of using agpgart with no loss of performance...).

Default NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.runīs fine on SuSE 9.0 and Redhat9

Hi Andy,

very nice, stable piece of work, excellent release Date (I just got a little spare time)
I installed the new package on my RH 9 machine with updated Kernel 2.4.20-24.9.
My impression is: The driver works faster than the previous one, especially in OpenGL 3D apps. Initializing X11 is faster.
Compiling the kernel module was done within a few seconds.

The same on SuSE 9.0 Professional; I followed the differing instructions; no probs at all.
The Driver works out of the box, fast and stable.
No crashes and lockups at all.
Excellent precise mouse response (I use a standard PS/2 Logitech)

My HW: Nforce2 Ultra (Epox EP8RDA3 Rev2; Geforce GTS AGP 4x, Thorton 2400 CPU); Test Software Q3A @1280x1024 16bpp,high quality.

Thank You very much for supporting Linux users

regards Thomas

Nice work - this is the first driver after 31.23 wich achieves same timedemo fps in quake3. No problems installing it @ 2.4.18 and Geforce4 MX440, but in Wine they're 5-6 times slower than 31.23.

Regards.

OGL Playback flashes in Softimage XSI I have
Option "MultisampleCompatibility" "1" as mentioned by Nvidia and Soft in my XFConfig I also tried adding the AGP1 option as well. Glxgears plays back choppy it runs then stutters then runs. Looks like it will be 4620 unless anyone else has any other suggestions.

I installed the latest on my MSI K7N2GL mb with the nvidia IGP. I have 768 MB ram, 128 allocated to video, I don't run a separate video card. I "upgraded" from the Beta 4620 driver which worked ok except for slow startup.

Still blank screen at startup for about 30-45 seconds.
Switching to other consoles causes system lockup completely.
GLXgears figures are nearly the same for both drivers - apprx 2000 fps

I switch consoles frequently so this latest driver is now uninstalled, I'm back to the beta driver.

Thank you! I've used your patches before, but the run files make a big difference. I
updated the kernel to 2.6.0-test11 and just ran the 5238 run script. So far everything is
working perfectly (I haven't exited X yet).

Running Debian sid on a laptop with the NV17 [GeForce4 420 Go 32M] (rev a3).

Happy New Year!

David

Default Samsung X10

Florian, did you get any reply? I really need a working driver for my X10 and would like to help as well, maybe we can fix it. Do you have access to the full source code now?

I dont think that the nvidia guys will ever fix it, they always say that they are looking into it but I'm sure they never did and probably will never do.
I dont want to wait for years for a next release that doesnt fix it anyway :-(!!
thanks nvidia for your really bad support!!

wdowers, have you tried:
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV,DFP"
or
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV,CRT"
if you happen to be using the DVI port.

For more information look at /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README and search for IgnoreDisplayDevices

Thanks for the suggestion but I did the disable of the TVout and the DFP a while ago, that did get rid of the garbled shutdown screen, but the long pause at startup remains. I think it has something to do with the nVidia IGP and memory. If I decrease the memory on the onboard video the blank screen at startup is not as long. Bios is up to date, disto is Suse 9.0 Pro.
