Re: How many people need to use the proprietary nvidia driver ? (Or other non kms driver ?)



I used akmod-nvidia on Fedora 12 for 3D but the screen resolution is glunky compared to Fedora 12.
Could not install the proprietary nvidia driver.

For instance, I am trialling Varicad in F12 and it looks average, large icons, mouse movements average, but Blender 2.49 works well. In Fedora 11 Varicad works and looks very nice, small icons, snappy movement, very clean.
Screen resolution in both F11 and F12 is set the same.
I use Geforce 8600GT video card.
Generally everything else worked well in F12.

Yes, I must use proprietary driver. Nouveau is too slow for my machine.

If you are using the proprietary nvidia driver or some other non kms
equipped driver, how are you finding F12 ?  Ie do you experience
freezing when you access some panel items ?
It works fine on F11 but crashed a few time on F12. BTW, my card is Nvidia 9800gtx+.

Please reply if you need to ( ie must) use the proprietary nvidia driver
instead of the nouveau driver.

Or some other video driver that doesn't support kernel mode switching.

DON'T reply otherwise, I don't want to hear a debate on the free
versions versus proprietary or anything else.

If you are using the proprietary nvidia driver or some other non kms
equipped driver, how are you finding F12 ?  Ie do you experience
freezing when you access some panel items ?

Thanks
