Has anyone tried the nvidia 171.06.01 drivers yet and can you confirm how well it's running with compiz fusion etc ?
The laptop temperature reading is important here if possible to check and report back .
Seems they fixed a few things + added a card or 2 and possibly fixed a temperature bug as well recently , hopefully the 8800m GTX laptop video card has been added.http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_disp ... 06.01.html
I don't see it in portage yet , should be there soon.
To install / test:
# cd to folder where file is saved
# sudo sh ./NV*.run
Several guy's in another forum asked as they would like to switch to Linux and need info about their cards and this one , is how I found out about this.
