Latest Nvidia and other things

Hi All,

So it's been a couple of weeks, I've been working on trying to get a promotion, let me tell you without a lot of help from some great Sun colleges my documents would not be as good as they are.  I found it difficult to write about me, a lot easier to do product presentations.

I've been playing with the Nvidia driver settings on the Acer C90S, with the separate X server on the LCD and external monitor, with Compiz and 4 desktops each, I'm getting about 5000 frames per second running /usr/X11/demo/glxgears.

Rotating the cube is really smooth.

The external 500Gb 2.5" USB hard drive is working out great, it's has a ZFS pool which comes up all the time after I have to kill the laptop.

I'm having a problem with the 2.27.3 evolution, if I click on a large attachment it's locking up the system, still have not worked out whats going on yet.

I did do a B117 install on the Toshiba Portege R200 just for fun, the 2.26 nautilus sometimes does not come up all the way and you need to kill it a couple of times, looks like a timing issue, Compiz is not working at all on the Intel video, I'll have to look at this later, suspend / resume works ok, though the back light does not come up on the LCD.

I'm taking a couple of grandkids down to Oregon for a summer vacation tomorrow, back in two weeks.

Happy July 4th

Quick Lounge fixed for separate x screen Nvidia

Hi All,

This fix is only for Nvidia graphics system with separate  X screens configured.

Anyone who is running separate X screens on Nvidia and likes to run quick lounge in the gnome panel,  Paolo Bacchilega in Italy just sent me a fixed source version and it now works correctly.

If you start up a program from screen 2 quick lounge it comes up on screen 2.

Thanks Paolo :-)

You can get the 2.14.1 source from git clone git://git.gnome.org/quick-lounge-applet

Do a mkdir m4 in the quick-lounge-applet directory

then ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --disable-static --localstatedir=/var/lib

gmake

gmake install

pkill quick-lounge

pkill gnome-panel
