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

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).
