    Did you get it working with Direct Rendering? Since my update to 190.18.4 I keep getting
    "Error: glXCreateContext failed"

    pyrit is working though...

    run "glxinfo | grep -i render" from a terminal in X it should say Yes.

    Thanks Nemis ...

    I was unable to get the 190.18.4 nvidia drivers to play nice with 2.6.30.5 kernel as per the above. However thanks to the "20095-pyrit-cuda-nvidia-tutorial-nvidia-overclock-instructions" thread was able to get it working.

    Steps to get it all working..
    Download and install latest cuda driver from nvidia's site.
    # chmod +x ./cudadriver_2.3_linux_32_190.18.run
    # ./cudadriver_2.3_linux_32_190.18.run (not to be run from X)

    This got direct rendering working, but compiz was still not working.
    To address add the below to the xorg.conf

    Code:
    Section "Files"
         ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
         ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers"
                 ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
    EndSection
    Everything working like a charm..
