Re: An old Riva TNT 2 Ultra on SuSE 10
well, there's something else you can do, if you can't manage to get newer drivers to work: somewhere in this forum there's a patch for the older 6629 driver that worked great 'till newer kernels (2.6.14 for me). It should be here with instructions to get it work: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=56926
Hope at least this helps,
Laptop HP Pavilion zv5000: AMD Athlon 3000+ (32 bit); Nvidia GeForce4 440 Go! 64 Mb, 8774 driver revision; 768 MB PCI2700; nForce3 mobo chipset and audiocard, other uninteresting stuff... Debian unstable-experimental, custom 2.6.17 kernel debian-patched
Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.
