Phoronix: NVIDIA 190.16 Driver Brings OpenGL 3.2 To Linux
Yesterday NVIDIA released their first 190.xx Linux beta driver for their GeForce and Quadro graphics cards. The NVIDIA 190.16 Beta driver brought a number of VDPAU fixes, PowerMizer control features, a number of new official and unofficial OpenGL extensions receiving GLX protocol support, and there were a number of other fixes and enhancements too. However, now that we have had a chance to analyze this driver, there is more in store than what the change-log shares regarding this driver. There is in fact support for the unreleased OpenGL 3.2 specification.
190.16 just hosed my machine.
I tried to install on a fresh Ubuntu 9.04 amd64 setup on my HP 8710w (Quadro 1600m gpu) and now I'm stuck.
Installed latest Wine
downloaded 190.16 to desktop
Quit to cli via Ctrl + Alt + f2
Stop GDM and run installer (let installer do everything, write to xorg.conf, etc
Boom! blank screen. Scrambling to learn how to fix.Code:cd Desktop sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop sudo sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.16-pkg2.run sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start
