    It doesn't appear to resolve the XVideo corruption bug either. Too bad. At least if it's still beta hopefully there is a chance the fix will still make it into the final release.

    For me I see no differences to .19, but your mileage may vary.

    damn, i was hoping it would.. It fucking sucks that they introduce such crappy bugs into their production drivers, going from 1.0.9756 to 100.14.19 is a major regression.

    it really is annoying to have to switch out and into X to be able to watch video again.

    Default nvidia 100.14.23 help

    i tried to install this new driver on ubuntu 7.10 but ran into some hurdles but now when i try (sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.23-pkg1.run) the terminal responds : sh: Can't open NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.23-pkg1.run.

    would anyone have any suggestions on how to fix?

    thanks.

    Disable restricted modules then execute:

    http://kanotix.com/files/install-nvidia-debian.sh

    in vt1 by using

    sudo sh install-nvidia-debian.sh
