    (User Info)

    new nvidia-kernel-src and nvidia-glx-src packages are in incoming as we speak

    feel free to give them a bit of bashing, then drop by and give calc (the maintainer of them) a bashing if they cause a nuclear war between your video card and debian. (sorry calc, but the people have a right to bash 🙂 )

    nevertheless, read the readme's included, and making them becomes simple, and no more xlibmesa3 upgrades destroying your install either

    (yay RENDER! (now all i need is gtk support :/ )

    IT really hates my chipset or something... I have an old TNT1 board, just so i can play gltron, and it worked fine with the utah-glx stuff w/ Xfree 3. but when i updated to Xfree 4, i had to use the official Nvidia drivers and they so lock up the box.


    PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C598/694x [Apollo MVP3/Pro133x AGP]

    VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Riva TnT 128 [NV04] (rev 4).

    remembering that the nv drivers that come with XFree86 already support the Render extension (no 3d accel tho).
