    Default Didn't work for me.

    Got an 7300GS here and it didn't work for me. I couldn't install it. It gave me an error that it couldn't create the nvidia.ko.

    So, I assume that my GPU isn't supported. I had to go back to the 180.37.

    It does support your GPU.
    But with such an vague description nobody can help you.

    Well, I've got a nvidia card for testing and for me my ATi card with it's OSS drivers works better(*), even Compiz is faster. Only when it comes to 3D nvidia is faster.

    (*): Sometimes X is getting completely white, the keyboard doesn't work anymore. Only a remote shutdown helps here. This happens with driver 180.29.

    Ciao,

    Maybe it's a Friday the 13th joke... what ever state the driver was in at the end of the day... you got it, good luck (or bad luck if you are superstitious).
