Okay, with version 4620.
mingdao@paul:Tue Feb 10 18:20:06~$ glxgears
12108 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2421.600 FPS
14281 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2856.200 FPS
14275 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2855.000 FPS
14274 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2854.800 FPS
14275 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2855.000 FPS
14282 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2856.400 FPS

Where is this "nvidia-settings" located? Okay ->
mingdao@paul:Tue Feb 10 18:22:57~$ /usr/bin/nvidia-settings

Fonts still look like poop...

Question 4260 driver

Hey Guru3 or Chinaman.....you guys think maybe you could shoot me a copy of that driver. I need to load the driver for my FX5600. I would like to try this one, since I've heard some good things here and there. I have been unable to locate it elsewhere.

Thanks

I will make it publicaly available. Just let me find a free webhost with unlimited filesize, 10mb of space, and unlimited bandwith.

EDIT: I think I found a spot that gives me unlimited bandwith here. If anyone ever has problems getting here, please notify me.

Well I tried the patchs but it will not compile.. the log says no make file for nvidia.ko found. ::shrugs::

If anyone gets it to work on 2.6 let me know.

Thanks
