    What problems? Did you have too micro lags? I don't have time this days to tested it, but this would be amazing if I could play L4D2 like on windows .

      I want a new beta driver with tons of experimental stuff.

        I had hangs when the VRAM got maxed out, especially in the safe rooms. I'd get like 1 frame per 5 seconds with looped sound and Xorg would go to 100%.

        I think the micro lags even out for me once the GL cache gets compiled. Ohh and I need to set the CPU governor to performance.

            I didn't expire this problem, but maybe because I launched L4D2 only for few minutes - the micro lags where just irritating. I have already set the governor to performance long time ago, hope the problem with micro lags will be mostly fixed, well I will test it at this weekend.

              Have they fixed the openCL slowdown bug yet? I know most everyone who folds gets about 60% of their points in the 331 driver that they did in the 319 driver. There is supposed to be a bug fix on the way but has it landed yet?

                Seems like they fixed it. I used to get a crash when opening up a file dialogue box in Firefox. Now works perfect. I'm using ArchLinux.

                  Or not.

                  Not only that but stutters and input lag make the game completely unplayable now. Now button presses sometimes don't register at all, or are never released.

                  It's the year of Linux gaming!

                    I do get a lot of freezes/stutter at the beginning of L4D2 games, and then when zombies attack, but itís less and less frequent the longer I keep playing. Iíve always assumed it was caused by the game loading assets from diskÖ Also didnít notice any input lag, but Iím not a pro-gamer. (Arch Linux 64 bit, nvidia 331.38 on a GTX 660, Core i3 550.)

                      Don't know if it was the update of the nvidia drivers to 331.38, or perhaps from KDE 4.11.3 to 4.11.4, or the update to xorg-x11-server 7.6_1.14.3.901-4.1, however, but finally I can put my macbook pro to sleep and resume it, and it still shows the WiFi-connections in the plasmoid-networkmanagement, can authorize them, and the plasma menus work)
                      All this didn't work before (it was stuck at waiting for authorization).

                        331.38

                        cool


                        do you get all the games running in Fullscreen if yes - how ? very often the games always start in window mode (e.g. UT3) and unless clicked on them

                        they stay there or are in background & stay minimized


                        oftentimes when I try to get games running in Fullscreen or switch resolutions from 800x600 (e.g. NFS Hot Pursuit 2012) - it crashes


                        Rayman Origins doesn't work too bad but also hardlocks the box from time to time

                        wine version is 1.7.11



                        Metro Last Light seems to have a crashing bug caused by Nvidia drivers ? (when loading Polis)



                        besides that the driver is pretty stable and runs great on 3.13.0 kernel and survives switching to VT, switching from xfwm4 to compiz and back several times, inverting colors, zooming, watching videos on Youtube (windows / fullscreen), apps running under wine (PDF-XChange), several instances of Okular, Chromium with several tabs and hour-long sessions of researching and saving html-pages & PDF-files from the web

                        firefox also doesn't seem to lead to hardlocks or lockups with adobe-flash but it feels slow during loading/initialization compared to fglrx or xf86-video-ati drivers

                        also compiz-fusion feels kinda slow unless --indirect-rendering and --lose-binding (this seems to help) are activated

                          Hi

                          I use virtual desktop for all games, this is needed for appear other features as nvidia control panel and dolphin with console

                          Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is 2010 not 2012, 2012 is new most wanted nd this titles dont run on wine (DX10)

                          Rayman Origins requires some dlls on uplay directory (msasn1.dll and crypt32.dll)



                          Metro Last Light i dont have but i test metro 2033 without problems at test

                          Nvidia drivers works good on using my linux distribution at this time: Linux Mint 15 KDE 32bits Kernel 3.8.0 (Before) with Nvidia 331.20 and now Linux Mint 16 KDE 32bits Kernel 3.11 with Nvidia 331.38

                          :cool
