* Improved OpenGL workstation performance.

* Added support for XRandR rotation; see Appendix W in the text README.

* Added ExactModeTimingsDVI X config option to give explicit control
over the mode timings used on FlatPanels.

* Added Xorg dlloader support.

* Changed driver behavior such that PAT (Page Attribute Table)
is used where possible instead of MTRRs.

* Added a workaround for an X server bug with PCI-E GeForce 6800
and GeForce 6600; a fix has been provided to XFree86 and XOrg.

* Fixed stability problems on x86_64 PCI-E systems.

* Documented change_page_attr problems with x86_64 2.6 kernels;
please see the known issue "The X86-64 platform (AMD64/EM64T)
and 2.6 kernels" in the text README here:

/usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README

* Fixed 2D rendering corruption on certain older GPUs.

* Improved compatibility with Linux 2.6 kernels.

* Fixed compatibility problems with some SWIOTLB em64t systems.

* Fixed a bug that triggered error messages of the form:

"ioctl32(doom.x86:6747): Unknown cmd fd(16) cmd(c0384642){00}
arg(ffffc75c) on /dev/nvidiactl"

* Fixed NvAGP incompatibility with recent Linux 2.6 kernels.

Please note: If you're using a Linux 2.6 system, you may need to preload the AGPGART frontend module, agpgart.ko, prior to executing the NVIDIA .run installer:
# modprobe -q agpgart
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg0.run

"Added support for XRandR rotation"

I'm honestly shocked. I never thought it was going to happen.

Here is an ebuild set based off the latest one with the patches removed. It worked for me, but I can't make any promises and this is for you who can't wait like me.

You rock nvidia. The 6200 Go does too!

@PrakashKC: 1.0-7167 shouldn't require patching for current -bk kernels.

Hi. How can I extract the DVI timings for the flat panel of my laptop? Is xvidtune enough?

@zander: you should modify the title of the other thread and change from 6167 to 7167.

@zander

Well, I get this:

Code:
/var/tmp/portage/nvidia-kernel-1.0.7167/work/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg0/usr/src/nv/nv.c: In function `nv_agp_init':
/var/tmp/portage/nvidia-kernel-1.0.7167/work/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg0/usr/src/nv/nv.c:3075: Fehler: »agp_bridges« nicht deklariert (erste Benutzung in dieser Funktion)
/var/tmp/portage/nvidia-kernel-1.0.7167/work/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg0/usr/src/nv/nv.c:3075: Fehler: (Jeder nicht deklarierte Bezeichner wird nur einmal aufgeführt
/var/tmp/portage/nvidia-kernel-1.0.7167/work/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg0/usr/src/nv/nv.c:3075: Fehler: für jede Funktion in der er auftritt.)
I hacked an ebuild together and tried it. As I could't find the variable agp_bridges anywhere declared I wonder whether my ebuild is incorrect or there has been something changed in later bk kernels.

Unfortunately I don't know which gentoo patch fixes it with 6111 driver. I jst suspected in 6629 it is NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-6629-agp_bridge_data.patch, but it doesn't apply to new driver and comparing driver and patch it seems the driver handles some stuff like the previous one. (IE, the patch might be needed, but I am rather clueless...)

If you want I can try to install the driver manually w/o ebuild, if you thinkt he ebuild does something wrong.

@PrakashKC: you're right, this looks like a very recent change that's. I'll take a look.
