      Are you able to elaborate at all on your stability problems with NVIDIA's proprietary drivers?

        If you suspect that the instability is caused by the driver alone, try explaining it and posting a bug report here [nvnews.net]. The nVidia linux developers hang out there and are probably your best chance for a solution.

          8762 runs fine on my Ubuntu amd64 machine. It's a 6800GS though.

            Ok!

            This driver works perfectly with UT2k4, even better than in Winbloze. Once I switched to Xubuntu, my framerates jumped from ~ 23 fps to ~ 38 fps...a huge difference! I have a GeForce 6600 GT.
