Default Re: 6800 GS PCI-E support

Well, I've got a GeForce 6600 Go (laptop), and running OpenGL apps with it, results on a system freeze (sooner or later). Someone with a GeForce 6800 Go had a similar problem.
I used drivers from the 1.0-6629 version, up to the latest one (1.0-8178), but the problem remains.

If you're curious, check the thread related to this issue here.

But this must be a laptop specific issue, since I don't see people with desktop pcs talking about it.

Thumbs up Re: 6800 GS PCI-E support

Upgraded from a 9800pro a week or two ago and been running a 6800gs PCI-E (Sparkle) on an Via Athlon64 system (A3000 + Asus A8V-E) with 8178 drivers and it has been working perfectly...

Am using Gentoo (~amd64) with Kernel 2.6.15 and 3D, twinview, fan control etc.. work fine.

Can't comment about the GS, and I have NO idea how laptops got brought into this... but I have a go1400 (the Quadro version of the go6800) and I have NONE of the issues mentioned.

Hopefully somone with a GS will respond to the OP.
