Default Re: Dual Opteron SLI


I use it for pleasure and work(when home). I use medical imaging software, but I really enjoy games too.

Linux through nvidia has helped more than any other manufturer of video cards. I tried 3dlabs, and ATI, but nvidia semed to make a more serious effort at it.

now, if I could just get an SLI driver for my Suse 9.2 AMD64.....

Once small gripe - the nv4 raid (very beta) driver is not cooperating, I had to load a seperate drive as to not break the SATA raid. So there's an extra drive on the IDE primary. When I need to use the Linux load, I have to go to the bios, enable the drive, change the boot order and restart.

On the prior motherboard (s2885) the chip was the silicon image 3114 and they had nadequate raid drivers for Linux. Hoping nvidia get's the new one out soon.

For a lot of info on the opteron linux world - go to suse.lists.
