I like playing around with 3D software such as Autodesk Maya and Blender. I gave Blender a much greater focus during the last few months, as I developed a tendency to prefer opensource solutions whenever I can.
At the beginning I had some annoying problems with it, which surprisingly or not, aren't Blender's fault at all. Most of them are Nvidia's fault.
I have a graphics card based on the Nvidia GeForce 8600GT chipset.
On Ubuntu 9.04, my OpenGL didn't work at all, so I couldn't even get Blender to start.
Gladly, with the upgrade to 9.10 and the new ver 185 Nvid…
