Default Re: Nvidia nForce Drivers not compiling with 2.6.17.x

Unfortunately, NVidia apparently did not disclose all information about the chipset, as it is not possible to use
- hardware mixing
- more than two channels when using s/pdif
- and, most important, mixing into dts! This is the feature that made me buy a motherboard with nforce2 and soundstorm. Now I can only use in with old kernels.

In two years, neither the open driver nor NVidias driver has improved significantly IMO.

If there are no plans to give the necessary information to the developers, then we must still conclude that Nvidia has dropped Linux support.

The only nice thing that works is ac3 passthrough. Or am I mistaken and do all the above features work with the intel8x0 driver?
