Question Overclocking 6800 GT

Quick question: How can I overclock the 6800 GT under Linux? I snagged a copy of nvclock 0.7 but the 6800GT is too new and isn't supported. I saw someone with a screen shot of version 0.8 of nvclock with 6800 support, but I cannot for the life of me locate that file. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

The cvs version of Nvclock contains some basic nv40 support (mainly clock detection). Overclocking support will take some extra time as I need some debug info from windows to test my overclocking code. Further even GeforceFX support isn't done yet because of different 2d/3d clocks (and voltages/fanspeeds) but a workaround is in the make for that.

Expect some code the coming weeks as I will be on vacation next week.

I tried CVS nvclock with GF 6800, it shows the frequencies perfectly, but any attempt at changing them fails - they stay the same.

I hope to add 6800 overclocking soon but several things have changed inside the hardware and without direct hardware access it is difficult to figure out the meaning of the differences.
