I'm growing sick and tired of the missing libre drivers for my nvidia card--true, there are
libre drivers, but playing supertux w. OpenGL, or playing planet penguin racer (formerly tuxracer)at all, is just impossible (as is playing glTron at non-stinking resolutions and detail levels). Also, the supertux developers plan to shaft me (and a lot of other people) in milestone 2 by moving to OpenGL-only. Meanwhile, I drool at the screenshots of VegaStrike, yet it's so
slow I have to press C-M-F2 and kill -9 it.
So, instead of just complaining a lot, I figured I'd better do something about it.
So, what I want from you, my dear reader, is answers (questions asked in order of importance):
- Which graphics cards have libre drivers?
- Which of those are good enough to play VegaStrike? To play Planet Penguin Racer?
- Which of those are produced by companies (or individuals) who cooperate with the free software community in creating the free driver? Note that cooperation can take many form--one form is not actively trying to stop us, another form is releasing the spec, a third form is actually writing code.
Thanks for your attention --Jonas
