I’m trying to get nvclock to work but it always crashes, no matter whatever parameters i give it (except for no parameters which brings up the help screen just fine).
I have an 8800 gt with the nvidia drivers installed correctly running opensuse 11.1
Anyone else had this problem?

Yeah, i’m using the latest nvclock from packman. I should probably try some older versions to see if that helps. I don’t know why nvidia sets the default fan speed to 29%. It’s supposed to go up with temperature but the fan speed never changes dramatically, maybe like 10-15% at most.
I installed opensuse 11.1 on my vaio 2 days ago and i used the video drivers 180.29 from the nvidia site. After that I installed nvclock beta 4 for controlling the brightness with the command nvclock -S -X. At the beginning everything was working fine but after an update i did every time I’m using the command nvclock -S -X I’m taking the error: segmentation fault!
I tried to install again the drivers and nvclock, I also used those from the nvidia repository but without any positive result.
Unfortunately when I did the update I didn’t look what packages i was to update.
Do you have any idea how to fix this?
should I give up and reinstall everything??
Reinstalling won’t help. There’s a bug in nvclock. It doesn’t work with the lastest drivers at least with an 8800gt. Apparently nvclock is dead because the email address won’t work and nobody has replied on the forums.
thanks for you answer.
I have an 8400M GT.
As I said, before the updating it was working and it is working also on Ubuntu.
So are you telling that I should try an older version of the nvidia drivers?
Witch one do you think is better?
My ubuntu 8.10 worked as well because they use the 177* series of nvidia drivers. I can only imagine the new Ubuntu 9.04 will have the 180* drivers and more people with 8 series nvidia cards will have problems with nvclock.
I’ve the same problem with opensuse 11.1 and a GeForce 7400.
For some reason when I downgrade libv4l from version 0.5.9 to 0.4.0
nvclock and smartdimmer get back working.
I didn’t found anything about that in forums…
Hope it helps…
