    Default Nouveau To Go Into Linux 2 6 33 Kernel

    Thanks for the reply, but I can get to the boot menu.
    It has " BOOT: ",but what do I have to type in to get it to boot from CD. If I type nothing and just press ENTER it boots from the hard drive into Linux.

    Default Nouveau To Go Into Linux 2 6 33 Kernel

    I am aware that the card has linux drivers but have heard a lot of complaints, does any one have a similar set-up.
    Also what version of linux do you think is the best, i need a word app compatible with microsoft word.
    Thanks in advance.

    But I still have to say that even how bad NVIDIA's politics are... they do make an awesome driver and I don't talk about vdpau API.

    But for sure they really should open their mind, they could make benefits from helping nouveau driver, and this will lead to a driver competition will for sure end in a better driver available for users.

    When I see this fights, sometimes I get speechless is like seeing few bubbles in soap fighting each other instead of merging to live longer...

    I mean what is the goal of this drivers ? Isn't it to provide the better solution available ? there's no money to make on this...

    If a working solution "out of the box" is available users private or professionals will buy your hardware ! There's no doubt about it.

    And to answer another question, yes I do agree that canonical should put kernel .33 instead of .32 ... but this is really unsure... I do like ubuntu distribution because it's based on debian of course and lot's more. But please... Sometimes they take decisions that kill an entire system "if you ask me an exemple, I'll say that they have the worse pulseaudio implementation that I've ever seen, always had to go back to alsa manually (karmic is a little better I kept pulseaudio)"... So well let's hope they will do it.

    Of course I can be wrong, and thanks in advance if I say something wrong.
    I'm just a student in Software Engineer in Switzerland at moment, but I would not exchange my linux for anything else.

    I don't think you promote the open ati driver and foss with delusions that clearly look insane from the outside. Thank god for Linus.

    Since 10.04 is supposed to be a long-term release, moving to .33 & nouveau might be a very bad idea. For all we know, nouveau is pretty unstable at this point and enabling it by default might cause millions of machines to break. I'm not saying this will happen, but if this worst-case scenario came to pass, things would be very bad for Ubuntu. Long-term releases are used by businesses, universities and other institutions which would not tolerate wide-spread breakage.

    I think Ubuntu is making the correct decision by playing it safe here. Enterprising users can always upgrade their kernels manually (the process is as simple as enabling a PPA repository).
