    New NVIDiA driver with AA support
    Submitted by Anonymous on Wednesday, March 14, 2001 – 08:16
    There is a new NVIDIA driver 0.9-767 available at
    It has a few bugfixes and supports the new xrender extension with antialiased fonts.
    ressu: Great! maybe now it won’t kill my machine everytime i use it =)

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

    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.

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

    I had the same problem before. Then modified these ram
    type definition to SDRAM in os-registry.c and it worked. But
    the anti aliasing only shows up for the supseruser, normal
    users get kicked after starting 🙁

    Hmm – guess these nvidia guys should spend some more
    time to do their homework…

    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 irc.debian.org 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 :/ )
