Titel: install-nvidia script  BeitragVerfasst am: 17.11.2006, 12:43 Uhr

install-nvidia script should:
1. inform user which version of nvidia driver is going to install
2. have a switch which give me possibility leave xorg.conf without changes (why it changes my resolution?)

I reinstalled nvidia driver and waisted about half hour trying enable beryl. Eventually I noticed that script didn't install last stable version of driver (9629) but version 8776 (script was updated). When I was trying figure out what's wrong with my settings I had to reinstall nvidia drivers many times. And every time I had to bring back my xorg.conf. It's really frustrating.

a) You changed the screen res after first start of that script, that's your problem. It can be easyly fixed with:

rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf.1st

that file will be created the first time you run the script and is the input for all following runs.

b) Now you can use -h option to see plenty of tweak settings. As even at the fontpage with the Kanotix releasenotes the -c option for Composite was shown, I do not understand that you needed so long time. Every beryl shorthelp in IRC shows -c as needed option for composite. 9626 has some drawbacks, so you might only have got a 800x600 screenres after install, so I added the -e and -f options to control this. As default I always use the best driver overall (the last stable you really can forget).

Script always installed last stable version. I'm not smart enough to foresee you find 9xxx drivers not good enough. So I considered other issues - that's my excuse. I haven't have this problem when script would write something like "Installing 8776 version of nvidia driver. You can change it with option...." I think it's one line in script, but it can save somebody's time.
