Just delete or rename /etc/X11/xorg.config.d and for goodness knows how long opensource drivers for now or maybe use frickelplatz for nvidia-glx

270.41.19 is the latest driver I was able to run in unstable. With Aptosid I need to stick to it for the time being (installed from the NVIDIA blob).

With Squeeze + Backports I also had problems for a while with newer drivers but they have vanished lately (at least for the Quadro FX 4800 card). I am now running 280.13 installed directly from the NVIDIA blob.

NOTE: There are numerous scientific programs used for the visualisation of molecules that would not even start without 3D acceleration, to name but a few: ADT/PMV, UCSF Chimera, Pymol, VMD, etc.

Note: Our version of Nouveau already does provide 3d features. Do not simply believe any given google result - instead follow our HoTow at http://aptosid.com/index.php?module=wik ... g=GoNvidia to test latest Nouveau with our latest kernels and Xorg. Most applications demanding basic 3d will be just fine. Only in case of decent 3d performance needed you will still need the closed source drivers.
Greetings,
Chris

- Added support for xserver ABI 11 (xorg-server 1.11).
- Fixed a bug that caused the GLSL built-in uniforms gl_FrontMaterial and gl_BackMaterial to not be updated properly when calling glMaterial from a display list.
- Fixed an error handling bug that caused the OpenGL driver to crash while running certain WebGL applications.
- Fixed a bug in VDPAU that caused a glibc assertion when a call to VdpDeviceCreateX11 failed in certain ways.

towo| you make me nervous! Laughing

Will it be packaged in a nvidia-glx package, for "the debian way"?

I'm not a maintainer for nvidia-packages, but in this state of the driver, i wouldn't package him.

I am seeing this
      Code:
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  nvidia-glx xserver-xorg-video-nvidia


So if I'm interpreting the advice here correctly, it is best to just stop doing DUs and wait?

Also, FYI 3D is not the only issue. For example, nouveau does not support a second display for my middle-aged GeForce 8500 GT card, which I require.

Right -- the choice is convert to nouveau, or else avoid d-u until a fixed xserver-xorg is released.

It could be a good time to remind people that Synaptic is not a good choice to do even limited upgrades. Its package repositories are in match with apt-get if repositories are the same.... it is a good tool (for searching only) to see what is in line to be upgraded, if refreshed, or what is currently installed. As it works within the GUI it is somewhat dangerous to actually implement to do any upgrade, however, it is excellent to see the status of everything or what is available as well. As tempting as it may be to use... it does not take the exact steps or processes to be as clean about stuff as apt-get. However, it is a rather good tool to to observe the status of things, in my opinion. Be patient, if you, like me, use nVidia secret sauce. I wish I didn't need nVidia, but I have a functional Google Earth 6.0 with the 3D stuff and the computer works with it rather well. I have tried all of the options and none give the results I need... so I too am in a holding pattern. No other operating system is as good as aptosid in the frontier (experimental) of things, all is well with me being calm and just waiting.

This reply looks interesting:
      Quote:
or installing 275.28 driver, "litte" downgrade to old number version, but update features than beta 285.03 drivers

Added support for xserver ABI 11 (xorg-server 1.11).

What does it mean?
That downgrading to 275.28 will fix it?

I have been using this on my one 64 boxes (not main) and have thrown every game I play at it. (steam, all half-lifes, prey, crisis, batman, kingpin, quakes(s), cod4, marine sharpshooter 3, max payne(s)

I have no problem at all with any of the games, web browsing, email, all work fine

I know I am on my own with the way I do this, but, it works great for me.

I do not recommend it nor does aptosid, nor does aptosid support it, and you are on your own

I don't want to see any posts here bitching about it cause "it broke my system" you have been warned

It is better to wait for a fix on a production machine instead of people complaining and blaming aptosid

From experimental
