nVidia4 SLI and ATI 600xt AMD64


HI all,

hope you can help. I have a guy who was recommended a hardware setup and is now having difficulty configuring his hardware under Suse 9.2...I am trying to help him out. The basic hardware is -

MSI K8N SLI Platinum mobo (nVidia4)
ATI 600xt Graphics card
external Modem.

The problem seems to be the ATI drivers require 32bit binaries (according to the ATI FAQ) does this mean I have to install the 32 bit version of Suse instead of the 64bit? The nVidia hardware is not recognised by the kernel correctly will a kernel upgrade fix this, what is the current nVidia4 support like? I have had problems with Suse 9.2 with some hardware and personally I now use either fedora or Mandrake as they "seem" to support certain mobo chipsets better and Suse support have been pretty awful with regards to fixing the problems, this seems to have happened since Novell took them over, can anyone else comment on Suse?

No one else using this motherboard?

Am thinkin of giving it a try but with Slackware

grabber, which kernel are you using?
I'd suggest that you check the changelog for latest kernel and see if there's any rel info to the hardware/chipset on this motherboard
Am heading there my self... www.kernel.org
