Will slackware like nVidia GeForce 6800 GT better then SuSE/FC4?
Hello everyone. I'm trying to find a distro that will not require me to down grade my kernal or totally make it difficult (SuSE) to install the nVidia Drivers. I'm going to downlaod a distro tonight but i dont know which one. I've tried: Fedora Core 4 (wouldn't let me out of 24 bits and looked like crap, found the driver, totally scrammbled my screen). Installed SuSE 10.0, found out SuSE totally uses a different software or somthing then the norm for linux distro's and found it was very difficult (espeically for a n00b) to install the drivers supplied by nVidia. So i was wondering if slackware had any better support/luck? My System is the folllowing:
Alienware Area 51
GeForce 6800GT 256 DDR PCi-Express (FC4-okay, but still sucked, SuSE f no)
Sound BLaster Audigy (FC4 couldn't play sound, SuSE could)
Klipsch THX sound system
Pacific Digital DVD+/- burner
Internal cd-R burner
200 Gig sata (for linux)
160 gig sata (f0r windoze)
1 gig DUal CHannel 533 DDR ram
