Hence I wento to 9629, but I still get black windows.

Is this problem solved in any other driver release.

Thanks in advance.
Black screen or black window? Can you provide your xorg.conf. Thanks.

Black windows, screen is ok, only when window is big I get black inside. I've read previous post clamming this was a bug in beta driver 9625.

Replace :

if [ "$RET" == "0" ]; then
With :
Quote:
if [ "$RET" = "0" ]; then
in conftest.sh as talked about earlier in this thread....

Folks, I'm closing this thread, as there are too many different & unrelated issues being discussed and its becoming difficult to follow any of them. Please start a new thread that is specific to any questions or issues you wish to discuss (and include an nvidia-bug-report.log if you need assistance). Thanks.

@Lithorus: note that the statement in question (with the '=' operator) is equivalent to a string comparison performed using `test`; dash's builtin doesn't understand the '==' operator, while GNU's `test` does.
