    Default NVIDIA 190.53 Pre-Release Linux Driver

    Phoronix: NVIDIA 190.53 Pre-Release Linux Driver

    For those not interested in the Nouveau driver, head on over to NVIDIA's FTP server as a new 190.xx driver is available. Late last month NVIDIA released the 195.22 beta Linux driver as the first in this new driver series, and while there are new features and advancements going on there, NVIDIA is still maintaining the current 190.xx stable driver series...

    I would prefer a new 195.xx series update with some divx fixes for vdpau.

    Nvidia Driver,

    For Christmas can I please have the ability to set monitor rotation in the nVidia X server settings utility? I'm really bad at editing text files.

    Thanks

    Wink FGLRX & Dear Santa Request.....

    Dear Santa,

    please strike the ATI/AMD BOD with inspiration, so they put some more resources into the FGLRX team, so they can fix all the broken stuff, as fast as nVida does....

    Respectfully yours,
    GreekGeek.

    P.S: The Milk & Cookies, are by the Tree. ;-)

    How about inspiring them to either open it up or scrap FGLRX and move that team to working on the open source driver instead? Would be a much better xmas present.

    Whats so wrong with having an opensource and a closed driver? And why is it okay to have two opensource drivers when talking about working on the same thing? The closed one is at least completly different from the open ones and is usable to offer future features like digital right management etc. (no need to wine, scream, cry about not needing this... some people do).

    Personaly I think all three of the drivers are impressive and having a choice doesn't heart either.

    ABitMoreOntopic: The nvidia drivers are still way beter than the ati drivers (relevant for people interested in using their hardware to their full potential). Even my 8 year old 4200 work perfect with nvidia's legacy drivers.

    Well I got bored and sad while testing xvba and replaced the ATI 4550 by a shiny new Nvidia GT220 - vdpau is much better - divx support could be still improved however, but that's mainly a diligence work. h264,vc1 and mpeg2 works already fine.

    I'm curious, do you really use the DIVX acceleration? What's the use case, it always seemed like such a useless feature to me with the speed that even old CPUs can decode it. I guess I haven't ever tried any 1080p divx files, are there any in use out there?

    I've just ordered one of these cards (gt220), but I'm slightly under the impression that audio isn't supported through the hdmi port - any experience with this? Does it work?
