AMD64 Drivers that work with 2.6 kernel?
I was wondering if anyone knows the status of the AMD64 drivers that work with the 2.6 kernel?
I've got a wonderfull,and rather expensive Quadro FX 2000 running on a dual Opteron box that doesn't work with my APG and provides unacellerated 2D video. Rather painfull to work with.
I purchased this card based on my past experince with Nvidia linux drivers and I now find myself stuck.

They work, no problems so far, just use the patch from www.minion.de for 4499. But hhere are some caveats: Nvidia GLX crashes with a NPTL-enabled glibc, and the Nvidia kernel modues won't load with K8 NUMA enabled, and there's no hardware accellerated OpenGL for 32bit apps...
My box, with a QuadroFX 3000:
