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

Well some would rather call this marketing, other maybe something worse..., as the ethernet driver wasn't "open-sourced". It was reverse engineered without *ANY* help from Nvidia's side, so please don't bend the facts, thus the driver's name. Later, much later, NVidia decided to support the driver...

But what about us NForce2 users and Soundstorm? As Dr.Nix said, there is no opensource driver for the APU. (I am not talking about the ac'97 codec!) It would be nice, if NVidia gave out specs, so that we could get/create a decent (alsa) driver...
