I have compiled and packaged the Nvidia drivers for the new kernel of Puppy 4.3 (k2.6.30.5). The pet packages also contain OpenGL libraries (libglut and libGLU) and a test program glxgears, so you do not need to install the xorg_dri package for OpenGL support.

NVIDIA-190.53-k2.6.30.5.pet is for latest cards (Gf6 - Gf9, G200 -> )

NVIDIA-173.14.20-k2.6.30.5.pet is for newish cards (Gf5)

NVIDIA-96.43.13-k2.6.30.5.pet for older cards (Gf2 - Gf4 ?)

NVIDIA-71.86.11-k2.6.30.5.pet for prehistoric cards

Get them from http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/NOP

Gray - first of all sorry to hear you are too busy to coordinate
4.4 - ah well

Now then I tried the
NVIDIA-185.18.36-k2.6.30.5-1.pet
but had the same choppy sound results that occurred with
MU's recent compiling of this driver

The only driver that worked previously was this one
NVIDIA-177.82-k2.6.25.16.pet
but you have not compiled this for the new kernel
Is it possible you might?

Cool

Works perfectly with my Nvidia Geforce G 105M! Haven't tried a game though. My 1366x768 resolution works nicely.

Oh yea I was wondering, if I wanted to install an nvidia driver AND an ati driver, would that work? I have one laptop that has an Nvidia card and one that has ATI. Would I be able to install both and switch the drivers for each laptop @ boot? or would this not work @ all?

Thank you very much for sharing this!!
As i am very,very new to Linux i spent a hole day, trying to install the driver from nvidia.com and failed to create the "precompiled kernel" I was asked for.

Now I tried yours: NVIDIA-96.43.13-k2.6.30.5-1.pet for older cards (Gf2 - Gf4 ?) as i want to use the TV-Out of an old P3 Notebook with GF2 Go.

It seems to work somehow, but now i am stuck to save settings to xorg.conf.
If i replace the the xorg.conf with the new one and restart X, it falls back using the "nv" driver and renames my file to "xorg.conf."(ending with a dot).

Or is there a way to change this options at runtime, without restarting X?
I think i need to add these, as my TV-Out is grey-coloured:
Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-G"

Subject description: with k2.6.30.5 using xorg_xorg_full_dri-7.3.1.pet causes OpenGL not working ?
 

Hi,
a few posts earlier I have mentionned Nvidia driver to work fine on the latest kernel ( - thanks to you, gray !)
gCAD3D application is meanwhile not running on pup4.30 k2.6.30.5 whatever the graphic card I tested it on (intel onboard 845G or nvidia Ge6).
see more details here
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=21514&start=60

Latest nvidia drivers have OpenGL already in them, former k2.6.25.16 related not instead.

One other fact: xorg_xorg_full_dri-7.3.1.pet does not allow OpenGL working on pup4.30 k2.6.30.5

Thanks for any help!
Cheers
Charlie

I'm using an AMD AM2 motherboard. After replacing my monitor to a FullHD with DVI -Connection i've lost sound, under WinXp/ Ubuntu/ Puppy, with vga-connection it does the job.
Don't ask me why, but I first changed the hypertransport setting in the BIOS from 16-Bit to 8 Bit and it works fine for me.
