Question Does the new nVidia driver actually work for anyone?

"The 1.0-8756 driver will add support for the 7xxx GPU family".......yeah, right.

Only a few people have got it to work, head over to if you're having problems. nVidia really dropped the ball on this one.

The new driver isn't in the YaST repositories yet, and installing it myself just crippled X.

Comments? Suggestions?

Just upgraded to Xorg7 and the 8756 driver, have a Nvidia 6400 and everthing is working fine for me.

Although I use the Debian provided one ( nvidia-kernel-source and nvidia-glx ), not the Nvidia installer.

It works fine for me on Gentoo, Fedora Core and Mandriva using Geforce MX 400 cards.
