Default Is ther an Nvidia control panel of sorts for Linux?

One big difference with the Linux drivers and the Windoz drivers is there is no type of a control panel to set up your card from Nvidia. Or am I missing something? I have the latest drivers from Nvidia's web site installed in Mandrake 9.2 but there is no nice way to set anyhting for Opengl or just the 2d desktop for that matter.

I have the latest NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run installed and working but there dosn't seem to be an nvidia-settings anywhere

That control panel looks nice it would be a real shame if it was removed form a newer driver set.

The 5328 package dont come with the nvidia panel, only the 4620 does and for most it's a better driver anyway.

With everything working for the most part. Is there much trouble to switch to older drivers form the latest ones?

Would I just do the same as I did when installing the other ones?

Will the .run file overwite everything it needs to?

it will work with the current release

You may as well just install the driver, it's quick enough to do anyway.

Stupid me after rereading your post I extraced the control panel file and it works fine with these drivers. Why in the world did Nvidia leave out a feature like that?

For me with the latest drivers I put the files there manually and tyhe control panel ran one time. Worked I set the vsync on and then the next time I tried it it fualted out

The program 'nvidia-settings' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
(Details: serial 32 error_code 2 request_code 146 minor_code 3)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Whats with this.
