There is:

http://www.nvidia.com/content/nvregi...inRegister.asp

I am not on it, so I am not sure if it's any good, but I happened to notice a couple of days ago that it existed.

Once again, I wish nvidia told us if the new drivers will take a week, or a month, or a year, doesn't matter, just so we can plan around the approximate date. Now, I don't want to recompile the kernel because I am sure that if I did such a thing, drivers would appear the next day Murphy's law.

Oh and BTW 80% of all distro's out there are based on Redhat and that includes SuSe. So, just stop the name-calling, and be thankfull for projects like Fedora that are paving the way for the future of "LINUX"

I dont mean to start some kind of distro war but your facts are totally wrong, Fedora has nothing more than redhat had, try SuSE and you see YaST, SaX2 and YOU, Fedora is redhat with updated software, nothing more, nothing less.

Based on Redhat, give me a break, i've never heard such crap since SuSE has it's own package management system through YaST.

My god they have even started 3 new threads about the same issue, seems the federa people are comes in trolling nvidia for a updated driver all because fedora want to be the first with a lastest kernel.

Hi Guys,

Just like to say....

I am not sure when nvidia will release a driver that fixes the 4K stack problem (wish i had the apptitude to understand it), but if i was to suggest something : Compile the latest kernel with suggested options disabled and install the latest nvidia driver. It is more than worth it...

My gnome starts up in 2 secs... yes no exagerration.. 2 secs. My desktop just looks a tad more beautiful. If i was into 3D or 2D or OpenGL i am sure i would see a lot more..

Now all i have to do is.. get these fonts right !!

My 2c

Hi there,

I'm a gentoo user, so I do not have the problem. What would be constructive for the board is if someone (with FC2) would post instructions on how to recompile the kernel with 8k stacks. I assume it is as simple as:

cd /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig
scroll to some option for stack and remove/add a check
save/exit
make bzImage & make modules install
cp bzImage /boot
vi /boot/grub/grub.conf
add the new kernel (cut/paste the old kernel lines, change the root= line
reboot and choose the new kernel


Can someone with FC clean up the above so that it is a 1 page cut and paste that newbies can print out to hold their hand throught the process? It's not difficult, it's just a bit overwelming the first time.

Thank you for your time,
Frank Russo

Untrue. nvidia does not "support" linux, just look at this forum; when's the last time anyone from nvidia supported anybody?

ATI has done far, far more service to the linux community by allowing some outside parties to have access to their chips' specifications. This lets people make open source drivers that don't suck for ATI cards.

Six months of screwing with the same buggy nvidia driver when an off-the-shelf Radeon turned out to set up and work properly in an hour, running in SMP with full hardware 2D and 3D under native open-source drivers. No more system crashes, no more godawful lagging, no more jittering, everything Just Works(tm). That's $120 well spent, and $120 that nvidia sure didn't get.

Sorry but that is a load of crap .... ATI's linux drivers are far inferior to NVIDIA's. I'm not trying to start ANOTHER war (SuLinux you need more fider in your diet) and used to be one of ATI's biggest supporters until I came to the Linux world and saw the total lack of Linux support (remember using firegl drivers not long ago for RADEON cards?) not too mention that the the drivers that are out there now don't support 64-bit (NVIDIA does) and the 32-bit drivers suck. Now when ATI does release 64-bit drivers and IF they work I will be the first one to run out and buy a x800 XT and slap it in my Linux box because (sorry NVIDIA .... I do like your cards) right now ATI is king of the heap. however ATI's Linux drivers =
