This is off topic, but since I don’t know if the NVidia guys review the linux forum…
I got a gf4 2 months ago: can I expect linux drivers with NV30 emulation as in the detonator 40 windows drivers shortly, or will ARB_vertex_program be a windows-only extension for gf4 owners?
Ok I should have watched the NVidia FTP before posting.
who’s installing the thing
Hummm… These new drivers do not expose ARB_vertex_program :’(
Unless someone from NVIDIA has a better answer, the only thing I can say is : please be patient.
Wait for the next release of NVIDIA drivers for linux and cross your fingers. If the next release doesn’t expose OpenGL1.4 features and/or ARB_vertex_program, then wait for the next release. It will come sooner or later (hopefully sooner).
