    Phoronix: NVIDIA Releases Four New Linux Drivers

    The NVIDIA 180.22 Linux driver was released less than three weeks ago, but today NVIDIA has released a new 180.xx display driver update. In addition, NVIDIA has updated all three of their legacy display drivers.

    Are there any news about a fix for the issue with GT200 cards not throttling in 2D mode with 2 monitors attached?

    Now would that be amazing if nVidia wrote a driver for that card that's BETTER than ATI's own

    Oh come on, its not like I'm asking for source code.

    You forgot one major step after kdm stop:

    sudo rmmod nvidia
    That did not make any difference. I never had to do that on previous drivers either.

    huh.

    For some reason, as far as Zypper knew, nothing changed in that repo. I run zypper refresh and/or zypper up almost daily (keeping up with Factory for KDE 4.2), and that repo always came up as being up do date. Interesting.

    Well, thanks for the heads up.

    180.25 came out, and I'm still waiting for 180.22 to hit the openSUSE repos. Ah well. It's not like anything terribly new and exciting is in store for my Geforce 6200 with these new releases.
    180.22 have been on the repo since Jan 15.

    Does anyone use an external monitor? I'm using 177.82 and I have serious problems with the external projector starting correctly (on Ubuntu 9.10). It doesn't work at all when I'm using visual effects, and I still am not even though the secondary display shows a desktop without desktop affects it eventually hangs my entire system and I have to do a hard reboot. I wonder if this area is improved in any of the releases since 177.82.
