Default xorg 7.1 under x86_64 status ?

Hello,

I have tried some "tricks" to have good fonts under xorg 7.1 (without Xgl which I don't want) without success in firefox.

Could someone explains what has to be done before the next nvidia release ?

I think the situation is worse under 64 bits than it is under 32 bits.

Thank in advance

It should be the same as the normal (as in i386) X.org 7.1 hack.
Just disable RenderAccel (Option "RenderAccel" "false") and your fonts should be fine.

EDIT: The next driver release -should- be compatible with 7.1, and with a little bit of luck, it should include full AiGLX support. (FC6, here I come!)

Cheers,

Gecko-based browsers still fall apart with Xorg 7.1 and the current drivers, no matter what your settings are. If you use Opera it's much better but there are still a couple of websites that have missing text. *me wants his epiphany back*

Does anyone know how long we have to wait for 7.1 compatible drivers? I had just gotten used to XGL when I upgraded my Gentoo x86_64 laptop to xorg 7.1 and then I couldn't use it anymore.

I could go back to 7.0 but hey, always move forward, never back.

An Xorg-7.1 compatible driver will be released in the near future.

Thanks,

Considering how ridiculously overdue it is, I think the "whine" is justified.

Thumbs up Re: xorg 7.1 under x86_64 status ?

That's really a great new :-)
I have downgraded to 7.0 because nothing was really perfectly working with 7.1 (but yes, under 32 bits it does). I hope the near futur is "near" ;-)

Can someone define the "near future" for me and the others? It's "near future" since months, you know

The windows 9xxx driver is out, so the chances for a linux one are rising... I would say 2-4 weeks.
