No, that shouldn't be necessary. Thanks for providing these data points.

Regarding SuSE, I thought that with Novell behind, we would get a rock solid distro, but that was a mistake.
Like RedHat's RHEL/Fedora, SUSE has two distributions - OpenSUSE: a freely available bleeding edge distribution and SLED/SLES - a slow moving stable distribution.

Thanks for these advices. BTW, are RHEL and SLED available for free?!
Nope.
CentOS/Scientific Linux (and a number of other RHEL clones) are free.
In my view CentOS is best freely available "enterprise" distribution.

I'm not a Debian fan (far from it), but Debian 4 is much better then 3.

Concerning the EVGA: (OT)

After a short phone conversation with my local supplier I changed the pre-order to Gigabyte.
Seems that most of the super-clocked EVGA cards he sold were quickly RMA'ed due to stability/over-heating problems.
Seems that EVGA didn't really test the cooling on the super-clocked cards before shipping them out.

Has anyone got their 8800gt working yet?

I have a pre OC'd MSI 8800gt on the way which should be here in a week or two - I really hope I don't have to wait for the official release to get it working.

(I use amd64 Gentoo)

According to the Gentoo version bump bug, it apparently works to just rename the ebuild and it works fine. You might need to create a local Portage overlay to do that though.

or do the ugly hack "ebuild digest" for your modded/renamed ebuild in the main portage :-D as I usually do for temporary solution.

I'm kind of new to Gentoo, so I'm not sure what "creating an overlay" means or what you'd rename the ebuild to.

Do you have a link to an article on gentoo-wiki or somewhere that could explain the overlay thing?

Gentoo wiki has a pretty decent looking article on it here: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Create_an_Updated_Ebuild

There's more than you probably need to know there, but it will help get the overlay setup. Then you can pretty much just copy the .ebuild file for the latest drivers in portage and rename it using the same format for the 169.04 version (something like nvidia-drivers-169.04.ebuild). I think it should pick up the right version, although you might need to change a version number at the top of the ebuild if it doesn't work.

XFX 8800GT works fine except for No fan control, fan turns at 100% at boot the n goes at reduced speed.
Temps very high idle 60 degrees C, Load >85 degrees C.

Are nvidia ever going to get around to fan control drivers?
