I just installed ubuntu 9.10 on my computer ( i went cold turkey from windows) but i cant help but notice how flaky the graphics driver is. For example, while watching a movie full screen, and theres a lot of action on the screen, i get these horizontal lines and a bit of choppyness.
I first tried the driver in the package manager, then the driver from nvidia's site. They both seem the same.
Is there something im missing? do nvidia drivers just suck for linux?
Graphics Card:nvidia 9800gt
Driver version: 190.53
Ubuntu install: x64 9.10
If you need any more information please let me know.
Thank you very much.
