nVidia's secret nForce drivers
I have to admit I'm pretty amazed at what I just found. I recently installed Red Hat 9 Linux and found that it didn't recognize the onboard LAN card for my nForce chipset. Naturally, I went to the official nVidia site and saw the link in the Drivers page leading one to the "Linux and FreeBSD drivers". I clicked on it, and came up this page:
There I see a link to the nForce drivers that leads me to this page:
This link has drivers dated November 2002, but what the heck, if they work, no problem. The problem is that they *didn't* work. Life is tough one might be inclined to say. Still, I looked and looked, wanting to resolve my problem, and finally via GOOGLE, I found the solution: nVidia's JUNE 2003 drivers!!! Was this a secret beta that nasty Google uncovered? Nope! It comes with release notes and all!
Great going guys.
P.S. Now to test and see if they run....
Great detective work. The June drivers support Mandrake 9.1. w00t!
that driver has been out for more than a month. And it's not secret whatsoever
