    I Love Linux 3D

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I have been trying to get 3D support for Linux for years. I ended up buying a Radeon 9800Pro, but I decided to return it to get an Nvidia FX 5200 ULTRA and use the rest of the money from the return on other pc components. Wow! I downloaded and installed the latest drivers off the net, and within 3 minutes, I was playing some awesome hardware accellerated games! The graphics on RACER is great, and games like GL-117 are amazing! What can I say, I deleted the windows partition for my gaming, and now I have the motto, "If it don't work on Linux, then it ain't worth working"!

    Very cool. I remember a couple of folks over at JL/LNO a few years ago who tried to get this working for months at a time... And then ended up leaving Linux all together, out of frustration.

    Yeah, I ended doing that a couple times too, but I would always come back. There is something about Linux that I just can't do without, I don't know what it is though...

    Oops, speaking about frustration, I have ditched SUSE Linux 9.1 Pro for SUSE Linux 8.2 Pro. There were a couple of reasons, but mostly because of the fact that the 2.6.4 kernel makes a mess of sound if you are using a AC97 audio chip. The problem has to rectified by downloading the newest Kernel, but when you have Dial-Up and a four hour session limit, it is impossible to download 68mb. The solution, 8.2.

    Make sure you get the ULTRA 'cause the non-ULTRA 5200 ain't that great.

    "Dual 2.5GHz PowerPC G5" Yikes! PowerPC machine! I tried that for a little while about a year ago. I ended up selling that machine and just sticking with a good on Intel-type machine. PPC Linux just freaks me out.

    As for Linux, stick with nVidia cards, IMHO. They have the unified driver architecture so you only ever have to download one driver. You don't have to worry about getting the correct driver for the type of card you have. Just DL the newest Detonator Driver one and away you go.

    Testify, brother! I'm running an ATI now (boring story...basically, a big-time hardware swap happened in my life about a month ago and I have to run this stupid PCI radeon...no AGP bus on the motherboard [yikes]) and there's a noticeable blurriness and lack of snappy response vs. my old trusty GeForce 2 I had been running for years. The Nvidia drivers _always_ work.
