Proprietary nvidia drivers vs. generic intel sound and ethernet drivers
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 22, 2005
I would just like to know the opinion of hardware experts out here which is the preferred option.
I have an ASUS A7N8X-E motherboard with on-board NVIDIA sound and ethernet LAN. I am currently using the generic intel (i810-audio) audio and (sk98lin) ethernet modules loaded from the kernel.
What are the advantages (if any) of using the proprietary nvsound and nvnet modules?

ATI vs. NVIDIA

Just wanted to get everyones opinion on this. I currently have an older Nvidia card with 16mb or ram. I really want to upgrade now because I've been playing a lot of games lately and I can see that this card is not going to cut it.
Would you suggest getting and Nvidia or ATI video card? Not just in terms of general performance but also how easy it is to install the drivers on Linux. The Nvidia drivers were pretty easy to install but I've never messed with ATI's drivers.
ATi vs Nvidia in Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 27, 2004
I saw this article at anadtech that compares the latest Nvidia and ATi graphics cards using the latest versions of their Linux Drivers. Nvidia is, by far, still in the lead, but ATI is starting to get there with major games like Unreal Tournament 2k4 reaching (although barely) enough Frames Per Second to be playable.
Also the article mentions that, although ATi's to-do list is shorter then Nvidia's, it deals with critical problems like resolve screen corruption while Nvidia's is mostly mundane things that deal with multiple displays.
Probably the major downfall to ATI though, is the lack of 64-bit drivers. When the 64-bit binaries were used for UT2k4, with an Athlon 64 3800+ and 64-bit Nvidia Drivers there was a 5-8 frame per second increase. Now that may not sound like a lot, but 5-8 FPS can lead to a better visual experience, and provide 5-8 more chances a second to destroy your opponent.
It's worth a look, especially if your in the realm of Linux Gamer.
RADEON 9200 vs GeForce FX5200
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 16, 2004
when my s3 prosavage km133 wasn't supported in rh 9, I began thinking it was time for an upgrade. I saw two nice video cards at newegg:
(just go to newegg and paste that in after it loads. i'll edit this once i get 5 posts...)
I am leaning towards the radeon, but wasn't sure if there are any better deals. From what I have found, Radeons are more compatible on Linux. Right now I can't even watch videos at full-screen, so I am just worried at which one will work with linux right off the bat.
OpenGL 4.x enquiry Xorg vs fglrx for Radeon HD 7970
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 14, 2015
Im running Ubuntu 15.04 and loving it. But I would simply like to know more about the Xorg open source drivers in it and whether I messed up
I've been here to ensure I'm doing things right. But it turns out when I use the Radeon proprietary drivers I get a black screen on login on my main user. The only way I was able to switch back, was to log into the guest user first then switch users and sometimes (not always), it would allow me to change back to Xorg drivers in my main account before the screen goes black..
But when I would do that, they somehow mess up the Xorg open source drivers when I switch back (no high resolution setting, wine doesn't work properly, steam wont open)
I followed another forum to purge the xorg drivers, reset the config file, re-downloaded, reinstalled + reconfigured, which fixed it.
I am new and I'm not sure whether me doing this is related to my current problem.
My question is this:
Xorg drivers only give me OpenGL 3 support, when my card is
How to do PCI device passthrough for discrete Radeon or Nvidia graphics card via Openstack
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I'm trying to perform PCI device passthrough using the Openstack pci_alias method in https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Pci_passthrough
It works for intel embedded GPU, but failed for Nvidia and ATI discrete graphics card.
Openstack horizon failed with the error
Error: Failed to launch instance "ati2": Please try again later
[Error: No valid host was found. ].
After tracing through openstack calls, I realized the error was on the compute host, due to libvirt error. The error messages from the openstack logging is:
