Main Page - Linux Mint Rami Kayyali’s Scatterism Archive: Configuring nVidia Drivers on November 27th, 2005 • Linux I’ve been fiddling around with Ubuntu Breezy lately, it seems like a solid system, more or less. I’m going to get to that later on, but now I’m going to document how to properly install nVidia drivers on Ubuntu. Ubuntu’s Wiki has many out-dated documents on how to do that, and they all say that it’s as easy as running: apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-glx-config enable After rebooting, nVidia drivers should be installed. glxgears -printfps On my GeForce 6800 Ultra I’m getting around 14,000 FPS, I’m sure I can speed it up with more tweaking, but I don’t really have the time for it. The thing is, enabling nVidia GLX drivers isn’t enough to get the performance these drivers are capable of. First, check whether you’re using AGPGART or NVIDIA AGP drivers: $ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status Status: Enabled Driver: NVIDIA AGP Rate: 8x Fast Writes: Disabled SBA: Enabled I had to blacklist amd64_agp too because it depeneds on agpgart. Well, I hope that’s it. Best of luck.

10+ free, fast-booting Linux distros that aren't Chrome OS Sure, Chrome OS has been all over the headlines since early December. But it might not run on your hardware and you're going to have to wait at least a year for the final version. Why bother waiting? Linux enthusiasts have been working on projects like this for years - fast booting, stripped-down distributions which offer the core functionality most users are looking for in a pinch: web browsing, music and video playback, photo management, and some basic games. Here are 11 options you can take for a spin right now...And since the Google Chrome beta version is available for Linux you can even run the browser that "is the OS" in most of these if you want! Intel's backing gives Moblin a big boost publicity-wise, so it's quickly become a key player in the netbook/ultraportable Linux game. JolicloudJolicloud is currently in open beta testing, and it's already built a large, supportive following. xPud (also header image) xPud is tiny - about 50/60MB - and it boots in about 10 seconds.
