Az Nvidia kiadta a Xorg 7.3 kompatibilis driverét

Az Nvidia kiadta a 100.14.19 jelzésű driverét, mely immáron támogatja a Xorg 7.3-as verzióját.

A Portage fában ennek hatására Donnie kivette a xorg-server-1.4 ebuildből az nvidia-drivers csomagra vonatkozó blokkolást.

A 71XX és 96XX jelzésű kártyákkal rendelkezőknek azonban nincs szerncséjük, mert az nVidia nem frissítette a drivereket az új ABI-hoz. Hivatalosan az nVidia azt ajánlja, hogy tiltsák le a Composite kiterjesztést a xorg.conf-ban, illetőleg az X -ignoreABI paraméterezéssel legyen indítva.

Az új driver támogatást ad néhány újabb Quadro kártyához, illetve javított GeForce 8 támogatás is érkezik benne.

It’s OnDemandVBlankInterrupts, you put that in your driver section and set it to true and you should see some power savings from your laptops. On my machine with sys-power/powertop, it showed an immediate reduction of 60 interrupts per second.

Na ez ígéretesnek tűnik. :)

Azt hiszem tegnap vagy tegnap előtt szedte le a debian sid az xorg 7.3-at.
Szerencsére nem kellett sokat várnom a driverre :)

He. Rögvest felcserélte az alapértelmezett screen sorrendet.
Valamint egy "(WW) NVIDIA(0): Error: Unable to find DOS" sort is kaptam az xorg.log-ba
