Default Re: Official NVIDIA Linux Control Panel feedback thread

ok. I think I figured out how to get this going on my AMD64/Suse9.1 system:

1) cd to nvidia-settings-1.0/src/libXNVCtrl and delete libXNVCtrl.a
2) copy Xext.h and extutil.h from /usr/X11R6/include/X11/extensions to this
directory
3) xmkmf
4) make clean
5) make
6) cd back to the main directory (nv-dia-settings-1.0)
7) modify the Makefile, (lin 81 in my version) to read:
X11R6_LIB_DIR = $(X11R6_DIR)/lib64
(just append '64' to 'lib')
8) make clean
9) make
... have fun.

I setup the complete modified source, with compiles binaries at
http://johannes.homepc.org/nvidia-se...-1.0-amd64.tgz

Got to love Debian.... there is packages for this in the main repository. A simple 'apt-get install nvidia-settings' will install it. It's working great here, the only issue I have with it... it seems the temperature in linux reads it as 10 degrees hotter than it does in Windows.. Anyone else experiencing this? I have a eVGA 6800 GT and the kernel is the kernel-image-2.6.7-1-686 from Debian.

It is right that the temperature is currently 10 degrees higher on Linux. As far as I understood it the driver can enable/disable parts of the chip. By default in 2d mode you don't need all the functionality so parts are disabled and the temperature is "low". In linux for some reason various stuff isn't disabled (perhaps they have less control over some stuff) and that explains the higher temperature.

About the temperature

Hi

The 10º increase are in both 2D and 3D apps, not only in 2D desktop apps.

Question Re: Official NVIDIA Linux Control Panel feedback thread

Hi Andy,
I have problem with SuSE 8.1 RPMs :

rpm --justdb -Uhv NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-6106.suse81.i586.rpm
Ok!

rpm -Uvh NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-6106.suse81.i586.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
libnvidia-tls.so.1 is needed by NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-610


Any idea?

Note: My actual version is:
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191
NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191

Thanks,
Jatt

The control panel is wonderful! I'm really excited for it to have TwinView functionality.

I'm trying to figure out why my nVidia Quadro FX 3200 dual DVI card doesn't actually allow dual display from my Linux box. Any suggestions? The tech says the proper driver is installed.

Thanks,
Bonnie

How do I get to this Control Panel in Fedora Core 2 and will that help me set up TV out?

Lightbulb Re: Official NVIDIA Linux Control Panel feedback thread

I'd like to add an OpenGL preview window to the nvidia-settings app but I want to start with the latest version of the source and their hasn't been a driver release for a while. Is the next release of the driver going to contain a significantly changed nvidia-settings app?

No, the source layout and structure won't change with the next driver release.

I'm the one who had the X server crash when nvidia-settings loads stored configuration.
Now I'm running xorg from cvs and the crash is gone. (before I was running stock fedora2 xorg server).
