NVIDIA 1.0-9625 Display Drivers (BETA)

September 23, 2006 at 8:03 am (GNU/Linux, Ubuntu)

This driver supports GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap and therefore AIGLX and Compiz should work now.

Another amazing feature is “the new “Display Configuration” page for nvidia-settings. NVIDIA’s new display configuration options are similar to ATI’s dynamic display management options. TwinView can now be enabled real-time without restarting X (Xinerama requires X restart). TV-out on NVIDIA cards can also be enabled real-time. The screenshots below demonstrate these display options”.

    alberto; just a correction: with the nvidia drivers implementing the texture from pixmap extension directly, AIGLX is unnecessary for using a compositing window manager (compiz, beryl, metacity+compositing).

    Infact, you should see better performance if you run compiz w/o the –indirect-rendering option, according to nvidia.
