I've just installed the new driver on f13 and so far I've seen no
problems: but I'm not using VDPAU and there have been comments
rubbishing the previous 260 series. AFAIR there were some modeline
Following on from the thread after the previous driver upgrade I tried
doing it without rebooting, as follows. This is not a recommendation,
just a narrative, and the usual caveats apply.
After installing the new packages - just nvidia-graphics brought in the
others - I shut down mythfrontend and mythbackend but left other
programs running and didn't log out. It would probably be better to do so.
Ctrl/Alt/f2 to get terminal, log in and su to be root.
-this paused for several seconds after starting freshclam, then put up a
message about duplicate clamav databases (which I thought I had
addressed earlier, and have not returned to) and then started a new
terminal session. I think it then presented the X login screen running
the new driver (according to the NVIDIA X Server Settings screen) and
went on as normal - but already things are a bit hazy about the precise
sequence of events and whether telinit 3 also hung briefly on freshclam.
I hope this is helpful.
