The panel works fine. Thank you very much.
I'd like to see the temperature readings inside karamba. I'm working on :-)

Pretty nice little utility. I'm liking it.

I don't see the temperature section either with my fx5900xt.

Would be nice if there was a faq or something that lists which cards the temperature sensing is supposed to work with, or if there needs to be other programs installed, or if its like manufacterer specific and may or may not be there.

Under Slackware 10 with kernel 2.4.27-rc3 plus i2c, have had no problems with the settings utility (due in some part to the messages in this thread - thank you all - and also to the ease of use of the utility - thank you Andy and friends)

I'm running a Chaintech FX 5900 XT, and can see the temperature readout in the panel with no problems. What manufacturer for your card, buaku? Have heard different assertions made about this, but from what I understand, not all 5900's have temperature sensors... (Somebody correct me if I'm misinformed)

kirkengaard, I have an MSI board. I did a little looking around and you appear correct in that not all the boards have the thermel sensor chip. I read two reviews that mentioned that the MSI board doesn't have a way to monitor the temperature. So it appears that its up to the board maker.

I'm also running Slackware 10, but with the 2.4.26 kernel plus a self applied I2C patch. Was hoping to get sensors and rivatv working together, but I finally read that the 6106 drivers dont work w/ that. I couldn't get the 5336 ones working consistently either, but thats another story :P At least lm_sensors works though

Thanks for the reply.

My sister's MSI FX5600 (1 year old) does have a thermal sensor. It's a windows-only PC, and 'speedfan' reports thermal information for the FX.

What I'm missing in the driver is collor correction for each seperate monitor. I use a laptop with a dfp which is way too bright by default. The gamma correction can correct this nicely, but these gamma settings are also applied to the 2nd (crt) monitor which is also connected to my laptop. So by correcting the dfp the crt will get way too dim

Thumbs up Re: Official NVIDIA Linux Control Panel feedback thread

I was really really really REALLY needing this Control Panel since purchasing an LCD August last year, and now I can run my LCD in DVI mode without the display burning out my retinas. This is utility is just superb. I've had no problems with it at all, so far. Thankyou, nVidia.

For an AMD64 setup, shouldn't the Makefile be configured to search for the 64 bit version of libXxf86vm.a in /usr/X11R6/lib64 rather than /usr/X11R6/lib? That would explain the "skipping incompatible" message.

I get the same error compiling the Control Panel.

angoxft-1.0 -lpangox-1.0 -lpango-1.0 -lgobject-2.0 -lgmodule-2.0 -ldl -lglib-2.0 -L /usr/X11R6/lib -Wl,-Bstatic -lXxf86vm -lXv -Wl,-Bdynamic -lX11 -lXext src/libXNVCtrl/libXNVCtrl.a -o nvidia-settings
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXxf86vm
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [nvidia-settings] Error 1

I know the shared library is in the cache so I don't see how linker doesn't find it.
