Working well with no errors so far.

I updated the ebuild in berkano overlay to 180.22. This also installs VDPAU, which the ebuild in portage (being an older version) does not do.

Thanks yngwin...I kinda thought you would have this ebuild ready pretty quick on berkano...glad I waited. Oooo, also picked up the new nvidia-settings as well. Thanks again.

So, I can not get that version, unless I use an overlay? Not even through unmasking?

anyone else having hard lockups (reset required) if using compiz and
180.22 (with 2.6.28 kernel which does seem to be a bit
of a dog) whereas all was/is fine with 180.18?

I've got an old geforce 6600 ...

Hi, i currently have the 177.82 version of the nvidia driver installed (which i did by adding x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers inside the file /etc/portage/package.keywords)
now i have read that this version (180.22) would allow me to watch 1080p .mkv videos encoded with x264 by hardware decoding instead of software, which is very interesting for me because those files actually make my cpu (amd 6000+) hit the 100% mark and are skippy as hell when i play them in mplayer.

my first question is:
am i correct in thinking that this driver might allow me to finally enjoy those 1080p video ?

and the second one, if the first one have a positive answer :)
what is the proper way of installing/using this driver and the vdpau thing that i believe would add support in mplayer for 1080p hardware decoding ?

First you should make sure your video card supports this.

If your video card is supported then you will need to use one of the media players
that is patched to give you this feature. You can get these from the berkano-overlay
along with an ebuild for the latest nvidia driver with vdpau. Information here...

I just bought an ASUS GeForce 9400 GT card and have been testing the 180.22 drivers for a couple of days. Problems so far:

1) I get a 180 deg hue shift in XVideo. VLC, MPlayer, Totem similarly affected. Worked around by launching nvidia-settings and moving the X Server XVideo Settings->Hue slider one pixel to the right and then back to 0. The hue shift reappears when I quit nvidia-settings, so I need to keep n-s running when watching movies.
2) Firefox 3.0.5 crashes on launch. Work around: eselect opengl set xorg-x11, launch firefox, eselect opengl set nvidia.

Compiz: no issues so far, seems to be working really smooth! Unigine Tropics results also look good. Similar FPS for Windows XP/D3D and Linux/OpenGL, I interpret that as xorg config OK.

For anyone whose not aware, there's like 10 pages of posts regarding people experiencing nasty crashes/freezes with 180.22 as well as other 180.xx drivers. There are others (including myself) who've experienced similar freezes with 177.82:

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=123912

I haven't tried any 180.xx drivers on MythTV frontend (the only machine I have with a compatible card), but I recently downgraded from 177.82 to 173.14.15 because of freezes described here:

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-5382515.html

nvidia has logged a bug on this in regard to the 180.xx driver but apparently is as yet unable to reproduce this...so whatever it is it's pretty elusive. I'm sticking with 173.14.15 until I hear something significant on that one.

I could find no error messages that would help pin down the error, other than the fact that gdm would not start. The 177.82 driver works fine.

Are you using the binary versions or did you build it yourself? Do songbird binaries also crash? The reason I'm asking is that x86_64 firefox nightly binaries (3.1b3pre in particular from mozilla's servers) crash with nvidia drivers here (but not the x86 binaries using the emulation binaries).

Anyone else experiencing a similar issue?

I had (have) firefox-3.2-alpha, i.e., minefield-trunk crashing with nvidia-180 for quite some time, but firefox-2 is okay. Meanwhile, if you didn't see it before, the workaround (,I don't remember where I saw it first,) is to disable 'glitz' USE flag in cairo:
Code:
USE=-glitz emerge cairo

Mmm... do you mean suspend to disk? Because suspend to ram has always worked ok for me, and of course it works with 180.22 too (8600M GT).

I did mean suspend to ram. Suspend to disk has never worked (even if it works it will be useless, given the 2-3min resume time). Suspend to ram was broken for many (including my laptop, NVS 140m) with the introduction of the 180.* drivers.

I do have a similar issue. STR works fine on my desktop with a 8600gt (and the new drivers), but on my notebook with quadrofx 570m it stopped working with the 180.* release.

My initial guess, was that they messed around with the professional cards somewhat.... (but I might be wrong.)

And I need those drivers get a decent performance out of kde4... (in the end this is my problem.)

just my $.02
