Default Re: 8800 GT

NVclock did not understand my 8800GT. I will check to see that I got the right version....
Also, I changed out my motherboard after I realized that it was a Biostar Tforce 4 -u. This model has a special Biostar only XGA (Xtreme graphics adapter) slot. It allows you to use older agp cards. Nvidia support was right on target when they said it appeared to be a motherboard bios or pciEX problem. The Nvidia driver did not understand the XGA slot and would not communicate with my 8800GT. Problem solved!!! Also the great folks over at the Livna repository rolled out a Kmod for Fedora 7 (8 too) based on the 169.04 beta driver. (nice work folks, I have my X back!!!)
