Default Re: nForce Drivers for Kernel 2.6?

i have no clue what everyone's gripe is with linux + 2.6 kernel + nvidia.

now, if you had an ati video card (like me ), THEN you would have something to gripe about.

here's instructions:

regular X+nVidia drivers for the video
don't use 2.6.6 kernel (have you read the changelog?)
forcedeth for ethernet (these drivers work better than nvidia's closed-source drivers)
and, alsa+snd-intel8x0 drivers for the sound http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...odule=intel8x0

everything should work perfectly.

if you have an ati video card, however, you will not be able to run any 3d applications (unless using software render, of course).
