Default Re: We want nvidia linux powerpc drivers !!

Please stop this discussion as Nvidia will NEVER release ppc linux drivers. First there's no real market for it and second it is not easy to port it. It is not just recompiling the driver but lots of ppc code would be added. You might say that there are drivers for OSX and that OSX is close to linux. That's true but those drivers are maintained by Apple and not by nvidia. Nvidia gave apple access to their driver source code.

Further even buying Ati cards for linux ppc is becoming quite useless as more recent models based on the r3xx/r4xx code aren't supported in 3d, so you get max some radeon9000 like card. (radeon9100=9000; 9200=8500 ..)
