    Very useful.
    It worked (breezy C4 on AMD64). Everything went fine, but I had to (discover and) remove /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.a which prevented glx extension to properly work.

    The file is provided by xerver-core, so it will have to be removed every time you update dat package.

    Best regards...

    Re: HOWTO: Latest NVIDIA drivers

    Where can I look up the "Option" values in xorg.conf (under device)?

    If you want to add them follow the example:

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV40 [GeForce 6200 TurboCache]"
    Driver "nvidia"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    Option "NvAGP" "0"
    Option "RenderAccel" "Off"
    Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP,TV"
    Option "NoRenderExtension" "Off"
    Option "Accel" "Off"
    Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" “Off”


    Usually there are no options set by default

    Re: HOWTO: Latest NVIDIA drivers

    Does the driver work?

    By the way try to type this in the command line:

    sudo ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/nvidia/libGL.so.1.xlibmesa libGL.so.1.2

    Usually there are no options set by default
    I mean where do you find out about those options? Which ones are available, what they do, etc....

    As I said before there are no options set by default.

    The options are useful if you have any problems with the driver.

    Some of them disable 3d acceleration.

    However if you want to know something more about them you can ask at this forum (maybe the developers themselves will answer you)

    http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=14

    P.S. if you don't have any problems, please don't mess with them
