    "Added support for Quad SLI."

    Haha, I laughed out loud. Are these the drivers that also support the 8800GTX/GTS? Regardless, grabbing!

      Like I stated in the article, supportive drivers will be out today (Nov 8). Still checking right now whether a Beta will also be coming out, otherwise these drivers do support the 8800.

        Ahh ok, I was confused there. The article said today, and then I seen these new drivers out. They sure like to release them close enough together ;-)

        Not like I have an 8800GTX or anything... so not sure why I cared, heh.

          Sadly the SLED 10 bug is still in there. Wonder why these new drivers don't work well with it. Maybe because they use an older version of Gnome? I've reinstalled / to make see if it was something I installed earlier causing it, but still no success.

            I just bought an 8800GTX and it doesn't look like the 9629 drivers support it. The driver just tells me it failed to initialize the device. I don't see any newer drivers on nZone. Anyone know any more on this?

              NVIDIA's PR department had specifically told me they would have drivers at nZone on launch day. So I guess just wait and see.

                    If you can, report back with how its performing and any problems and any other comments. I know some users on here would be very interested.

                      Well, I'm having a problem with some of the code I've personally written. I've haven't tracked down the problem yet, but it looks like it could be a driver bug.

                      I have quake 4 installed (1.3-2) and I'm having problems getting it to run. It can't find a matching glx visual for some reason. Maybe someone here has some idea what's going on. Here's the output:

                              Hmmm the drivers are Beta, but it looks like the OpenGL is indeed correct being NVIDIA.

                              Had you tried emailing NVIDIA? linux [at] nvidia.com if I recall correctly for the public address.

                              Once I get an 8800 setup going I can try to solve it as well.
