The cards do pre-date Linux support - those cards were around way before that date. The TNT is about 1998 and the GTS etc. are about 2000 from what I remember. 1998 and 2000 < 2001.


And nVidia had drivers for prior to the release I pointed out on their website, moron. Hell, even before their XFree86 4* releases they supported utah-glx. So there is no f--king way that the GTS pre-dates nVidia's linux support "by a long way".


your bullshit about support ending before GeForce FXs. Not bloody true.


I have never once, on this forum or any other, said anything about the GeForce FXs, idiot. You're thinking (assuming you're even capable of that) of someone else.

Before what? Since those were actually the first officially released nVidia drivers for Linux (pre 1.0 isn't a release, just so you know - that's why they're not listed on the website you twit!). Anything else before just isn't Linux support. You're labouring over a non-existant point which you can't even get right.

So there is no f--king way that the GTS pre-dates nVidia's linux support "by a long way".

Of course it does, especially considering the actual date and considering how long the drivers took to actually stabilise, and it took until at least the 1.0-44xx drivers to actually be good. As far as I'm concerned support only actually started about there. You might be used to shite ATI drivers, the rest of us aren't.

You're avoiding the actual issue at the root of this thread again - support did not end with the FXs and the shock that seven and five year old cards are no longer supported. Which if you'd actually further read back was the root of this whole thread.

I have never once, on this forum or any other, said anything about the GeForce FXs, idiot. You're thinking (assuming you're even capable of that) of someone else.

:

Also, anything post GeForce FX is no longer supported, which leaves my fully functional GF2 with the open driver. Which btw has had zero problems since I swithed to them.

Which wasn't written by you but you then decided to wade in over something that wasn't the actual point and you're even wrong about. So what have you actually been replying to? You don't just wade into threads and conversations without actually seeing what the whole thing was about. It's called reading and listening before writing and speaking.

I know you've been hanging on for my every written word for the past day, but I've got better things to do......

They released source code to the utal-glx project. That consistutes support, whether you like it or not, idiot.

So you admit you were wrong. It's about time.

It's not a 1.0 release of their drivers nor was it ever officially supported by nVidia. You're wrong twit-features.

So you admit you were wrong. It's about time.

Considering how so totally wrong you actually are about the non-existant point you're making and you're stirring around to make it look otherwise, I find that funny. Nice way of picking out one sentence I wrote. Brilliant that one.

No, it's just that you've replied to something that was never actually the root issue in this thread. You jumped in later without reading - as I've pointed out. If it wasn't written by you then keep your nose out.

Way to go to copy my use of bold for emphasis dumbass!
