Re: Nvidia problems... again

I would ask on the nVidia Linux Forum http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=14

They don't seem to be very responsive, unlike here :)

That said, if you're trying to troubleshoot, why not use the nv driver? It's
excellent for 2D work.

I would use nv driver (I am using it now actually), but I have two monitors, and its pointless having 2 LCD screens, when you can only use one of them! AFAIK, the only driver that supports dual screens is the nvidia and ATI ones... if you know different, let me know how to do it! I don't really do graphic intensive stuff (I might occasionally play Baldur's Gate, but that's not exactly video-hungry!), so if its not a high-performance driver, I'm not hugely bothered. As long as I get smooth standard usage, I'm ok :)

The thing that's strange, is that previous to building the 2.6.11 kernel up (when i was on 2.6.10), the nvidia driver built + installed fine, but now it doesn't... perhaps it's a disagreement with the 2.6.11 kernel??
