nForce 4 Audio/Ethernet drivers


Are the Audio and Ethernet drivers for the nforce 4 offered in rpm format? I wouldn't mind using them IF I can get them in (src)rpm format because I do not like using the nvidia installer.

You are stuck dude, there is just no rpm out yet. Please explain why you don't like the nvidia installer.

Mainly I dislike it because I feel it is uneccessarily messy. I prefer to stick with rpms to keep my system consistent, not to mention it doesn't automatically change all the settings ala RPM. With the video driver rpm you don't need to do anything after it installs, with the Nvidia installer you've gotta do a whole bunch of stuff and in some cases following their instructions doesn't always work.

Yup, I can see why you hate them. Unfortunatly, I have searched high and low for an rpm for the last half hour and dub it non-existant. Sometimes linux is just messy. Now what fun would owning a computer be if it just worked and everything you wanted to install would do everything for itself?

I just get a little obsessive sometimes about file system mess
