The Performance of drivers IDE and sound is better that the natives of the Linux ?

You do not need the nforce drivers if you have a 2.6 kernel.
All the drivers you need are allready in the kernel.

Yes this is correct but they are not supported by Nvidia either...

Hi,

did I understood it right? I couldn't use the nforce3 250 SATA controller? I want to buy a MSI Neo Platinum with this chip and a SATA hard disk. Is this right, that this won't work with a 2.4 or 2.6 kernel?

Regards,
Michael

You could consider the EPoX 8KDA3+. It has a second onboard SATA
RAID controller by Silicon Images. This one is fully supported in Linux.

But the EPoX board does not feature a FireWire controller, unlike
the MSI board you mention, and is more expensive.

Just found this
Looks like Nvidia has has a change of heart and is now helping forcedeth developers.
Nvnet will soon be completely obsolete if it was´nt allready.
Nice one Nvidia, all remains is nforce3 SATA support and nf3 here I come...
EDIT: Just found this patch providing SATA support for nforce3.
yay.

Well, so, if I understand pretty well, there is no need for a driver from form Nvidia. I do not agree. I have an Asus A7N8X Deluxe and I am not able to use the spdif output and only analog (stéréo) sound. If you are right, I should be able to use it on my mandrake 10, but right now, I have to boot back to my Xandros (kernel 2.4) partation to be able to make work the digital output.

So... Any idea, any solution, or, better, any new driver.

SPDIF does work with alsa and 2.6 kernels its just a real pain to configure...

I am running Fedora 2 with 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 kernel on a Soltek SL-75FRN2 board. Forcedeth seems to be working, but I have no sound. IF all of the necessary drivers are in the kernel, how do I get sound output?
