Bug Description

Binary package hint: nvidia-glx-new

this bug occurs both with windows and linux 1.69.09 driver, cs 1.6: doesnt work, nvidia was aware of this at 1.64 but apparantly its still not fixed

gutsy's repo driver is fine, might wanna rollback on that one for now?

DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=8.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=hardy
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu hardy (development branch)"

well the problem is: cs starts, freezes before even displaying the menu, and then crashes. resolution will be back to the game resolution.. so quite iritating

as i said, its a driver problem, so imho best thing is tell the repo man to go a version lower. (below 1.64 beta on linux, the problem didnt exist)

We are not going to downgrade the driver on Hardy. Hopefully there'll be a new version that fixes this.
