It can work for a few hours, then boom, optionally horizontal lines of crud thru the
xwindow display, the screen freezes, and the mouse still works.
I've spent a week battling this, the same hw works fine under win2000,
that's it, I'm going to take it back and find a truly "linux friendly" motherboard and video card. Nice try nvidia. Later.
Gaud I hope the grass is greener somewhere else. This kind of pain is what will kill linux off.
Onboard nvidia card?, your saying it's going to kill off linux just because you cannot get your onboard gfx working, what are you talking about, try another distro or kernel and even the new xfree86 4.4.0.
