    Default NVIDIA 260.19 Issues

    Hey guys,
    I am an OpenSuse lover since 3 months. Today, I decided to install it again on my computer. I saw some strange things. My GPU is a NVIDIA GT 240 so i tried to install the drivers as I did three months ago. Two months ago, the version was 256.45 in NVIDIA repository and today the 260.19 is released. First, I installed Mumble and it worked great (I turned off the overlay) but when I install 260.19 driver, i can't launch Mumble after. Here the results BEFORE and AFTER the driver installation

    BEFORE with nouveau or 256.45 driver:

    Code:
    mumble
    Exception en point flottant (core dumped)
    I use use the 32 bits OpenSuse 11.3 with KDE 4.4.5

    It's a very important problems so I think we could report it to the engineers but before that, I wanted to talk with the community.

    So the new nVidia proprietary video driver version 260.19 adds support for the new kernel 2.6.36 which was just released, though I have not yet tried to use it. The real question to you is of course, why did you upgrade your video driver? Unless you plan on installing the new kernel, I would have stuck with the older nVidia driver. Since a new kernel came out, I will most likely give it a try, on something I don't mind reloading from scratch, if needed.

    Thank You,

    I didn't decided to upgrade my driver. I just re-installed OpenSuse 11.3 and now the NVIDIA repository provides only the latest version (260.19).

    Thanks for clarifying the situation. I would not have thought they would have released the new nVidia driver so soon. So I did take one computer down and installed the kernel 2.6.36 and then installed the new nVidia 260.19 video driver and it does all seem to be working. Mumble does not appear in the normal repositories to test out and I would not have a chat setup to use it anyway. Perhaps someone else that uses it can pipe in.

    Yes, dude. I tested the driver with Sauerbraten and it runs so good. The problem seems to be Mumble only.
    Please test the Mumble (just check my link). It will show me if the problem is my computer or the driver. Don't worry, the package is OK. I used it during three months.

    i've been using this driver for quite a while, more or less since it came out. i used to have trouble with nvidia drivers and the standard kernel a long while ago (Xorg kept eating most of my CPU cycles), and therefore switched to Kernel:/HEAD, solving that problem. since then i've been using the latest kernels. soon after beta versions of the new nvidia driver started to appear, and even though each of them was working to satisfaction, i kept updating to the newer drivers--had to recompile for each new kernel anyway.

    i haven't experienced any problems with kernel or video drivers; not even when others reported KDE crashing on them after installing versions of nvidia 260.19. i suspect my system is nvidia-friendly somehow.

    intel core2 @ 2.93 GHz, 4 GB RAM
    openSUSE 11.3, KDE 4.5.2 (factory repos)
    GeForce 9400 GT, nvidia 260.19.12 (.run file from nvidia site; now i'm going to try the oS repo version)

    only trouble i have is i can't get virtualBox guests to run; most times i try, the whole system freezes the moment i try to start the guest. have been trying around with different settings & kernels, but so far i couldn't get it to work. this isn't something i really need, just playing around, so i don't mind. and since i'm using several non-standard repos, i'm not really surprised either. not sure if this related to kernel and/or video configuration.

    Yes you can. Just install the first package (stable) from my link and try to start the program. You don't need to join a server. I just want to see if you can start it without any issues.
    Thanks.

    installing ... and ... it works ok. i finished the audio adjustment (using pulseaudio), but canceled when it came to creating a certificate to use on public servers. didn't see any problem, except that i could probably have gotten better adjustment had i opened pulseaudio volume control...
