Exclamation new NVidia driver !!!


Hello everyone!

At first: This is really a great board!
I already found many good tips related to my (oh god) many Linux probs. So thanks to everyone posting and moderating.

What I wanted to say: NVidia has a new fresh and working driver 4193, released today. It's only one file, a executable shell script, and it worked well on my Mandrake 9.1.
The old kernel (4191) complained about a kernel 2.6.X ???
But this, as already said, works.
You only have to run it and make the well known modifications in the XF86config-4 file!

Hm, what should I say, SERVUS !!!

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4349.run is way too cool


Ready for SuSE 8.2 ;-)

Not for 8.1 tho (Use NVIDIA_kernel and GLX-x86-1.0-4349.rpms)



Have a lot of fun :-)

Has anyone experienced any performance increases/decreases with the 4349 driver? I run Gnome 2 and the 4191 drivers mucked up with it (lagginess). I went back top 3123 and things went fine. These latest drivers seem to be a little slower as far as 2D performance goes.
