Please submit a bug report to linux-bugs@nvidia.com, including the nvidia-bug-report.sh log file; note that the atkbd.c warning message really is a problem with XFree86 itself, fixed in CVS.

Maybe even faster than on Windows. It just seemed a bit weak at the shooting range.)

I did notice one problem though. Sometimes the text in CGA mode is messed up. After messing with my xorg.conf, my prompt was dim and after starting kdm, all colored text would not be drawn period. Or it may have been all text with the intensity bit turned on. Anyways, it only happens in true CGA mode as far as I can tell (not konsole, xterm, etc), so it's hardly a problem. And I haven't noticed it since then either. It only occured while installing/configuring the driver.

Oh yeah, and nvidia-settings reports my core is at 71 degrees Celsius. At what temperature should I begin to worry?



blackbard: If you haven't got your's working yet, try 'emerge unmerge nvidia-kernel nvidia-glx' and then download and run the driver from nVidia's site: http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-6106.html. I got the same error messages and that's what fixed it for me.
to further back up zander's response, i have a "BFG GeForce 6800 GT OC":

Any chance support for interlaced output has been added/fixed?

Just one tiny question: Do you really see any difference on your tv? I am quite sure that you don't. I also ran my tv at 1024x768 up til some time ago when someone in this forum informed me of the low resolution of tv's. I switched to 640x480 and there was absolutely no difference when watching movies. It's just a waste of gfx memory to use 1024x768 on a tv!

Question Re: 1.0-6106 for X86-32 thread

I am having problems getting the 1.0-6106 drivers working in my machine. I am using Fedora Core 2 and had no prob with the 2.6.5.x kernel that came with the distro. I am not able to get the driver running on the 2.6.6-1.435 or the 2.6.6-1.435.2.1 kernels. It tells me that the driver cant find the right kernel module and will build one for me. I choose yes, it does this and comes back saying installed but conflicst with rivafb module driver. I than tried re complilling the kernel in exact same configuration but leaving out the rivafb module. installer still has to make a nvidia kernel module, but did not get the error about conflicting drivers. I thought this wold do it...reboot and just boots to a blank screen. awwwwww..... any suggestions??

I absolutely, without any doubt, can tell you it makes a BIG difference. Maybe not to the odd divx, but I'm running MythTV. I'm using that for hi res movies, looking at photos (from 5+ megapixel cameras), playing games, surfing the web, etc etc. Makes a HUGE difference and it's the whole reason I sought out the graphics card in the first place. I'm really dissapointed

@erek

Fine, but where did you find NVClock 0.8 ?

I've only 0.7 which doesn't work with my GeForce FX5900.

Thanks.

that *must* be the placebo effect -- a tv's scanlines are only 320x240, but they update in odd intervals, making the effect of 640x480 -- so technically it's not even 640x480; that is... unless you have hdtv, which is right at 1024x768... even then, with most HDTV compliant tv's the difference isn't that great; many projection tv's will be "hdtv compatable", which basically means it will play hdtv formatted stuff, but at crappy quality -- equivalent to watching a dvd in vhs quality, it's just kinda pointless.

Full PAL resolution is 720x576. Doesn't quite sit with what you have said above! I'm not saying I understand the technicalities of it, BUT, I can assure you that everything looks "crappier" at 800x600. Even the g/f notices it. The box for my GF4 MX440 says it will do 1024x768, so that is what I expect it to do.

What tool do you run to get that nVidia configurator? I've never seen it when I install my nVidia drivers.

Thanks,
