For what it's worth, the "repo stuff" is working well with both my laptop (nVidia GT218 [NVS 3100M]) and desktop (nVidia G86 [GeForce 8500 GT]).

The "repo stuff" is not broken. If one does not use any 3rd party scripts or the installer from nvidia before, following our manuals will set up the nvidia drivers just fine.

Following the manual didn't work for me.

I tried using that before I used the nvidia.com script.

Very Happy -- good one, OppaErich! Thanks for a little humor.


@HennR, it is no disaster if you use the downloaded Nvidia driver, it works just fine. But, when you do it that way, instead of the way the manual tells, your driver module will not work for a new kernel. So, every time you install a new kernel (2 this week, so far), you must re-run the proprietary installer.

ASUS ARES still is the best!

Two ATI Radeon HD 5870 (I think so) chips on one card. Nice Test on HotHardware.com (please search ASUS ARES on Google, because I don't have copy/paste on my phone and don't want to type it per hand [and switching sites would delete my text]).

Hi, thanks for the hint.

I had graphic errors lately and installed libgl1-nvidia-alternatives and libglx-nvidia-alternatives.
After that I reinstalled the nvidia.com drivers, no errors occurred so far since then.
