Default Re: Linux 7600 GT driver when?

What part of the driver README wasn't clear to you when you purchased your card? Did you see a 7900 listed anywhere? Did you even bother to look at the README?

As posted earlier, this documentation is easily accessable that clearly implies that Linux is a currently supported operating system. It makes no indication to future support for linux and falls into the same category of functionality as Windows and Mac. This particular document is a matter of advertisement and specification to what the product is capable of supporting. The drivers are a means to make it work, and are necessary for use WITH the product, and not a standalone software to use without.

The only winners in lawsuits are the lawyers.

That said, why can't nVidia make public betas available for Linux as is done for Windows? It's a little late at this point, what with the impending release version, but something that mostly works would have been nice.

Oh well, maybe 7900GT's will be back in stock by the time the Linux drivers are ready.

Default Re: Linux 7600 GT driver when?

the only people getting hurt with the threats and complaints are the end users. nvidia really isn't obligated to create drivers for linux, it's just added sales to those that refuse to run windows. no where on my 7900gt box does it say linux is supported and, the readme doesn't list any 7xxx series as supported. so, failing to research hardware compatibility is really the bottom line.

i don't mind checking every night to see if the new driver has been released. it will be released when it's ready. i've been using nvidia since they bought 3dfx and have been pleased with the product. (3dfx was good as well )

This is actually the best news I've heard all week. I've spent over two hours on international calls to both nvidia and BFG trying to get someone to send me the beta 8751 drivers that Phoronix refers to.

I went out and bought a new 7900GT card because I've had such a good experience with the 6800GT, but I've felt really let down that the drivers don't support them.

Is there no-way your future drivers could say "here's an new card I don't recognise, it says it's an nvidia card newer than, say, 6200 so I'll treat it as a baseline 6200"? That would at least get people up and running until the new drivers are released.

buhammot, stop being a fool!

I knew before I got my 7600GT card that drivers were not yet released from reading the nVidia website. Clearly you have neither the patience or intelligence to find this information.

Im really happy with my 7600GT card and its working great under linux thanks to nvidia
