Re: GeForce 8100 in spasm mode
After plenty of testing with Ubuntu 8.10 32 + 64, OpenSuse 11.0 32+64, 11.1 32 I have a conclusion:
nvidia 8100 is NOT suitable for any form of Linux with a screen. Avoid anything with geforce 8100! If you have a 8100 - give up now!
Finally I got a separate geforce 8400 (~US$30) for my PC and it works out of the box perfectly - even without installing any of the special 173 or 177 drivers!
No flicker, 24b colors, 1280 x 1024, the "goat" Background, full screen effects - all work out of the box.
PS: support in this forum really disappoints.
