Just click the download link for the nvidia linux drivers and you'll get em.

So far they seem to work fine here......even a small performance improvement.
yep... the drivers work ok here (suse9, vanilla kernel 2.6.4, kde321, AMD-XP2700+, FX5900, NForce2Ultra).
about the performance boost... well it is faster for sure... before glxgears reported me about 7000 fps and now I got 7500...
that's great...

what I'd like to know is when the new forceware 55 drivers will be released with opengl 1.5 support...

anyway thanx again NVIDIA for your great support for linux...

Did a bit of kernel recompiling and discovered that the Use Register Arguments option (which admits that it will probably break third-party binary drivers...) was the trouble. Disabled that and now it works fine. Fixed bootsplash too.

I am looking to the 55.xx/56.xx series as well. OpenGL 1.5 support will be really nice to have. Still the 53.41 drivers aren't bad and its nice to get ahold of new drivers every so often.

After playing with these drivers for a few hours, I've made a couple interesting observations... I still get the badness in pci interrupt lockup, but in much more limited circumstances. Where it seemed to be random before, it's only happened on a couple pages in Opera 7.5TP3, and always at the same time.

the first one I noticed was a Weebl and Bob comic, http://www.weebl.jolt.co.uk/awards.htm right at the moment the announcer says "And that taste is brick". The second was in a geocrawler newsgroup archive page that I can't recover the URL for. This is kind of interesting, and I wonder if anyone else with these drivers might run into this.

You can download a fix for the CONFIG_REGPARM incompatibility from http://www.minion.de/nvidia.html .

Default FYI alt download for 5341

Ever since these were released I can only download 77% of the 6mb+ (after less than 2 mins)

I found this as alternative if any one else is having a problem.

These work for me as well as 5336 did ... I still get the twinkly pixel artefacts and occasional glitches on second digital head though

Everytime I enter a server in the game America's Army, my internet connexion cut out every second. Now why in the hell a video driver bother a internet connexion. I revert to 5336 and the problem disappear

No they are not, otherwise they would be in this forum pinned and on the nvidia site.
