Re: nVidia support: Where to start?

Thanks for the speedy reply Michael!

That seems to be the attitude of most linux users to nVidia (I can
understand why!), but somebody needs to step up to the plate - I don't know
enough (yet) to make a big difference, but it'll be a menacing learning
project *grin* (I'm a glutton for punishment)

There's enough people out there with AGP GeForce cards in their G4's that
something really needs to happen...I was thinking the 'nv' driver as well -
what real benefit do console drivers actually offer XFree86?

Oooh :) Now I'm excited about learning! Everything else runs wonderfully on
my DP G4, if I can get XFree86 running, I will be a happy person.

I apologise - I didn't realise that I had sent HTML mail...I don't normally
:( Stoopid outlook express....I promise I won't do it again!
