Default FX5900 ultra support

Just got my new Gainward FX 5900 Ultra /1600 XP. However, the card is not recognized during X startup. X does start however but some texture features seems not to be working correctly. When can I expect a new driver release with FX 5900 support?

I would suppose soon, since it's been released. Until then just use the nv driver.

Default 5900 still "in process"

I have found that 1.0-4363 and 1.0-4349 have some weird bus-polling or similar problem (something spikes my CPU to 100% usage every two seconds or so, for just a tiny slice of time). Besides this annoyance, 1.0-4363 seems relatively stable.

1.0-4191 doesn't have this problem, but it *does* lock up anything which hits the memory hard (e.g., anything 3d-accelerated) after some pretty short amount of time.

I would guess that these are issues relating to the NV35's brand-new memory systemry not being fully supported. I also have high hopes for a new driver drop soon.
