Support of Asus M2N8-VMX motherboard by SuSE 10.2

I want to buy the motherboard of Asus M2N8-VMX. And at the same time, I want to install SuSE10.2 as the operating system. However, I don't know whether there are appropriate supporting drivers.

I also look up in 'HCL' of this forum. However, there is no mention of this motherboard. Can any one help?

Additional information: I want to use Athlon XP 64 x2 5000+ CPU.

The Asus M2N line of motherboards have nvidia chipsets, which is good. Suse will detect the dual-core CPU and install an SMP-enabled kernel to make full use of the CPU. Suse will also install the nv.ko graphics module, which will only give you 2D graphics. After installing Suse, go to the nvidia website to get the latest nvidia driver and instructions for installing in Suse. Installing the nvidia driver takes a few seconds; very easy to do.


asus, driver
