Yep on windows and now its finally there on Linux. Something which has not been implemented till now and now works -> big deal.

But now you can be happy - SLI works!

What happened to the SMP support these drivers were suppose to have?
Multiprocessor support is in for this release as far as I know, the driver should be able to use more than 1 CPU for whatever.

For me all features except Composite and RenderAccel don't count - I am not a gamer but rather a composite fanatic

It is? Awesome! I've been waiting for a fix for that one forever.

Although, I was only affected by it back when I used a different distro and card, so It's actually a bit too late for me. But I'll be empathetic and join in the cheering anyway.

I have problems with fonts on my Debian SID machine.

With drivers 8174 the fonts all become veeeeery small (this didn't happen with 71XX ) ,
Have someone a clue for this problem?

Thanks

Yes. Something to switch my GF 6800 Go to a lower and higher clockrate...

I see no speed improvements here, tested with SPECviewperf. Not really with 1~3 fr/sec more on http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...item=337&num=3 . These are test variations, not more speed.

I don't have SLI in a notebook, no need for a HTML /man version of xyz, UseEdidFreqs was on "yes" before, I do not rotate a LCD,...and so on.

but no up2date nVidia Makefile for modular Xorg in Fedora 5 coming and other things mentoined earlier...

Ok, the driver runs good. But thats all.

I've added :

Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"

to my device section and it started to work again.

Is this a bug of this version of the driver or a problem of my monitor?

Option "UseEdidDpi" "DFP-0" also works (but I haven't understood what this option means)

You do realise that nvclock is not written by nvidia? In fact in most cases I believe they caution against overclocking (or at least the card manufacturers do). I know you can OC stuff (my BFG card comes OCed out of the box) but its at your own risk. I cant see nvidia providing something potentially damaging.

Wink Re: 1.0-8174 for Linux x86 released

No luck with my nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 420 Go] (rev a3). Same problem as above: my Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173 freezes even before the nVidia logo is shown. This happens with different kernels (2.6.13 and 2.6.14 were tested) and is always reproduceable.

Unfortunately, I cannot recover any usable information from my system for, after turning it off and back on, the journalized file system rolls back, so I guess I have not much to offer.

Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance. I am sure that this must be a transition release and a new one will be on its way soon. I will be looking forward to seeing it.

Thank you all folks at nVidia for the nice work.

Cheers,
Waldeck

PS: BTW, I am the proud owner of a ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 7200. Still waiting for the day when it will just work on Linux (TV viewing and capture) -- it is likely that this day will never come though, and I will not buy another ATI card until I then!

Great, it does not crash anymore! Thanks!

However it does output some Xids:

Code:
NVRM: Xid: 13, 0002 beef3097 00004097 00000208 07080228 00000002

They work fine, but still when I switch from X to console, without:
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV"
my screen goes blank with flashy strange patterns. Hope we'll se a fix for this.
