I have include two utilities in the package; nvidia-settings and nvidia-xconfig. To cut down the size (this pet expanded requires about 45 Megabytes), I left out the vdpu and cuda libraries. If you really need them, either post or provide a "PM" to me.

The pet, Nvidia_Spup040-256.35-K2.6.34.1.pet, is available at two places:

http://dotpups.de/puppy4/dotpups/XServer/

and

http://puppyfiles.ca/dotpupsde/puppy4/dotpups/XServer/

with a user name of puppy and password of linux.

It is recommended that this pet be installed with the x server using the VESA driver and configuration. Slack Puppy contains both the nv and nouveau drivers for the nvidia hardware. If either nv or nouveau are being used, the pet does not install correctly. Xorg wants to install the nv or nouveau kernel driver inplace of the needed nvidia one. Using the Vesa driver eliminates this problem.

After the pet completes installing, you need to exit to the command prompt (i.e. no xserver running) and enter two commands, The first is nvidia-xconfig. This configures xorg.conf and saves a backup copy of the original file. The second command is xwin to start xserver in the new configuraton up. This is the least painful of doing the configuration. An Xwindow message box also provides the same information at the end of the pet installtion.

I have also include an un-install script. After un-installing (or removal) of the nvidia driver pet, you need to exit t the command prompt (i.e. no xserver running). First command needed is "rmmod nvidia" to remove the nvidia kernel module. The second command is reboot. A reboot is needed! I have found that nvidia leaves something in memory (maybe something with glx) that causes the xserver to startup with "xwin" to fail. The reboot results in a clean configuration and proper operation.

Feedback is always welcome. I hope this helps.

Computer is an Acer AX1200-E1651A

This is after using your nvidia pet in spup 040

VIDEO REPORT: Slackpup, version 040

This is same Acer AX1200-E1651A after installing nvidia-256.3-amd64.pet
in Fatdog 64 final.

approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.

Quirky 1.2 cannot start x at all.
spup 040 and 030 will start x with neomagic driver but no accelerated graphics
luci-210 will start x with neomagic (I think) but no accelerated graphics with nvidia pets, won't start x at all with them.

This computer is one of those compact media center desktops, I think it's 30% smaller than regular desktop.I has two nvidia graphics controllers in it, one with a vga connector and another with the dsub (I think it's called) connector, also has an hdmi connector.
It seems to be a tough one to get accelerated graphics working but Fatdog 64 final does it.

Anyways, thanks for the pet Smile

Thank you for the feed back, Billtoo. I glad both of your cards were supported by the Nvidia 256.35 driver. Otherwise, it may not have worked for you. I found that I could not make a pet for Quicky. There is also a pet of the same driver for Lucid.

I do have a question for you. Did you install the pet with the xserver using the VESA driver? I ask because I have found with my Acer Aspire Revo system if either nv or nouveau driver is used, things do not work. It would be nice to just Xorgwizard to set up the xserver. However, I found it is best (especially if nv or nouveau driver is available) to use the nvidia-xconfig utility.

I couldn't get your nvidia pet to work while running spup040 on this acer.
Your nvidia pet is 14mb.

On this same computer while running Fatdog64 after installing the nvidia pet on the Fatdog64 download page I do get accelerated graphics.
The nvidia pet on the Fatdog download page is 24mb.

Thankyou for the pet but it didn't work for me on this computer.
