Just remember that these drivers are actually OLDER than the latest stable driver.

Are you sure about that?

From the 9751 driver:
Code:
Date of packaging : Thu Jan 25 19:35:36 PST 2007
9751 > 9746

What am I missing?

1.0-9751 is newer than 1.0-9746, however they're only qualified for use with CUDA.

1.0-9746 is significantly newer than the beta drivers which are no longer posted.

Thanks,
Lonni

Thanks for the clearing up. Just remembered some beta drivers a while ago which were higher in number but older than released drivers. Was quite sure that they were the 97.51.

My bad

However the 9751 seems to be working well in everyday use. Tested Xv, XvMC and 3D on Geforce 6150.

I hope this "no longer posted" is only temporary. The driver betas help us, users, solving driver related problems faster.

Did anyone test if this 9751 driver already solved the black windows bug in Beryl (using GL_TEXTURE_FROM_PIXMAP extension)?
