Nvidia Xorg driver

I have got the commercial Nvidia Xorg driver working with my GeForce Nvidia card, and have created a PET package. This is for the 2.6.33.2 kernel as used in recent Quirky, Wary and Lupu.

I tested this in Quirky 021, don't know if it will work in Lupu as there might be conflicts with Lupu's libGL* -- you would have to open my PET package and check that out.

Download (23MB):

For Quirky 021 testers, please give feedback!

Great news! CatDude has created two Nvidia PETs:

A PET for the "legacy" Nvidia cards too.

I want to download them and compare with my PET, however get a message "too many concurrent downloads" ...so, have to wait.

It Works!
Thank you! It works great on my hardware, Acer Aspire Revo. No problems. I will post the report-video output under Quirky 020 feedback under bugs. I did try again with the newer version of NVIDIA installer (195.36.24) using the expand and make process. It did not work. Time to do some searching on the kernel module build process.

It works!
Barry, thanks for doing this. My system is much more stable now. Still not perfect, and I'm still having some browser crashes but not nearly as many. Opera no longer freezes the machine, and Chrome is now usable.
