Default Re: 6800 GT - Unknown Board?

I suppose the ( newer ) Detonator ignores your XF86Config-Identification-Entries, for I didn't even make myself the effort to write that entry into it, an everything works well for me.

Detonator 1.0.6106 DOES support the GeForce FX 6800 ( Ultra ) devices. That it isn't displayed is probably a SaX2 bug, or more probably SaX2 only looks up it's database given by SuSE and does not enhance it by the detonator's one.

The GeForce FX 6800 GT is not _explicitely_ supported by 1.0.6106, as it isn't written into NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6106/usr/share/doc/README. That is why the control-center shows `Unknown Board`. However the 6800 GT should run under a FX 6800 Ultra, for those cards are technicaly identical ( the GT is just lower clocked ).
