nForce 2 chipset and Linux support
I am soon possibly going to be switching to an nForce 2 chipset, and I was wondering about the situation regarding NVIDIA's proprietary drivers. Must I use these to get sound and lan working in Linux? I ask this because I don't want to :
1) rely on proprietary drivers that could be a load of rubbish for all I know.
2) reinstall the drivers everytime I compile a new kernel.
Basically I am wondering if there are any open source variants available (I have an NVIDIA gfx card and I'm ok about installing those drivers each time, but and lan and sound and whatever else is taking the mickey :-) ).
