is my nvidia driver working fine? what's the standard procedure


Slackware 64 13.37

The nvidia binary installer created xorg.conf

I added the following section:
Code:
Section "Module"
        Load "glx"
EndSection
glxgears (small window)
39914 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7982.791 FPS
maximised window (24" monitor)
20885 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4175.335 FPS


glxinfo | grep render
direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL renderer string: GeForce 7600 GT/PCI/SSE2


I don't have any problems. I just wanted to know if there's anything else I need to do to configure nvidia binary driver.

Try again, it's hosted off a very poor ADSL connection that I'm currently using :P

Or there's always the google cache.

Also just remembered I need to update it for 13.37 cause stripping the input sections from the nvidia default xorg.conf is no longer necessary.

Don't worry about the URL. Your drivers are fine.
