[Centos] Re: nVIDIA on Linux -- less is more

Christopher,

I have a couple of other points.  

My recent email with the subject "nVIDIA on CentOS
3.3" was specifically in response to Kevin Wood's Fri,
17 Sep 2004 email with the subject "Does the nvidia
graphic card problem still exist with CentOS-3.3?". 
The wording of my email came out wrong because I was
responding to Kevin's email (which I copy below, along
with my response on Sunday).  As you can see from
Kevin's email, he had problems with nVIDIA cards, and
he was wondering whether CentOS 3.3 would resolve
them.   So I was writing to let him know the answer
(No!).   

I looked up the prior discussion of nVIDIA cards in
the mail digest.  For the record, they are available
here:

I can try it later this week (assuming that CentOS-3.3
is fully ready to go by then).  At the office, I have
all the components of my "hardware combination from
hell," and it would be easy to get them all onto the
test bench.
