NVIDIA 313.18 Driver Update Packs A Ton Of Changes
This is why I will never use anything else than Arch Linux. Already got my 313.18 driver even for my Linux CK Kernel with "nvidia-beta-ck" from the AUR.
I use linux-pf (I bit modded: added proper named for optimized kernels latern than Intel Core2, imported option from linux-ck to disable NUMA by default), I main the nvidia-pf package and I wait until nvidia-utils and lib32-nvidia-utils gets updated, my nvidia-pf-bumblebee and lib32-nvidia-bumblebee packages will updated tomorrow.
The FOSS AMD drivers are absolutely OK for normal desktop use cases and GNU/Linux is a completely crappy gaming platform because most games simply don't exist on GNU/Linux.
Tell that to VALVE. Anyways, this is not a thread discussing Linux gaming in general?
I'm so amazed by your use of “ur” instead of “your”. You're soooooooooo cool and it really makes your arguments more serious and believable.
How do you think you come off with statements like this?
If that were true, nobody would use NVidia on Linux because to this day NVidia drivers can't play back videos without tearing!
Are you just plain ignorant or are you trolling? Pick one, because I am playing back 1080p blu-ray material in perfect 24p every day with XBMC/nvidia(blob).
I also de facto have no video decoding acceleration because VLC only supports VAAPI (not VDPAU) and the VAAPI to VDPAU wrapper simply doesn't work!
Are you blaming nvidia for a shitty media player they did not write? Just switch to a decent media player that uses VDPAU natively, what's the problem?
I also don't know how to adjust the screen brightness with my NVidia GPU
Fixed that for you.
NVidia is not the flawless Linux supporter as you people claim NVidia was. There are many problems under Linux and with a FOSS driver at least people can use their GPUs almost forever and not be subject to some exec who decides that old GPUs are no longer supported.
Strange, I've been using the Linux nvidia driver since it was first released (what is that, 10 years ago now?). I can't recall having any problems at all. On the contrary, it's always supported the latest capabilities of Linux and performance have been great!
By all means, promote nouveau or whatever it is you are trying to do, but please refrain from making false statements and spreading FUD. Your claims are plain stupid.
Really? So gamers don't mind spending big ??? or $$$ or whatever in a new graphics card, only to have the same performance as their 4-year-old graphics card because the drivers are still not optimized for the new one?
Lol, we must not be talking about the same planet.
This is mom's basement open source playground that he was talking about. Nothing common with the real world.
I haven't benchmarked the 310 og 313 drivers, but the 304 drivers performs close to the Windows 310 and 313 drivers, so the reporting by NV-Control has to be wrong. I really hope they'll fix this soon.
