Re: nVidia Linux Driver support for mobile video cards (Geforce* Go)...
I had no success with my Dell Inspiron 8100 (Gefore2 Go, BIOS A04) and 7174 either (SuSE 9.2, 2.6.8-24.14 - machine locks hard while showing a fancy light effect on the display). I must admit I didn't have patience to try all different combinations of driver, module, and kernel options that I saw in this forum. I'll stick with 6111 for some time to come.
Is there anyone who successfully runs a Dell laptop with Geforce2 Go and 7174? What may be needed is some sort of an overview table of laptops, kernels, options used, and success grade.
