Nforce, Linux and the endless story of the drivers!!!!!!!!
I very angry about the policy of the hardware manufactures. There are many problems to get correct drivers for the linux system. I requested support at asus for the nforce2 and they answered that i have to ask for my problems at nvidia. nvidia show at their pages that everyone has to contact the manufacturerer for support. It's like a kidding game.
The problem with the nforce at linux is the wrong sound driver. Nvidia uses a patched driver for OSS. But OSS is deprecated in the latest linux distributions and it#s not possible to use dolby surround with linux.
I read in the last days that Bill Gates stated, that Linux got 960% more users in the last year. I think it's time for the manufactures of hardware to watch for the growing Linux community and to distribute working drivers for all the different distributions.
