nVIDIA nForce 590SLI


Recommended Posts

(sidenote: - thanks Mandriva for a wonderful job on this release!) :D


Just letting others know that my hardware works with Mandriva 2007 because I couldn't find any helpful information about linux support for my mobo chipset.


Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5 with the nVIDIA nForce 590SLI chipset

Memory: Adata DDR2 800 MHz (Dual Channel)

Graphics: Gigabyte nVidia GeForce 7600 GT (GV-NX76T256D-RH)

Hard Disks: Seagate 400GB SATAII, Seagate 80GB IDE

Printer: HP LaserJet 3020


Not yet tested:

  • RAID (hardware, on mobo)
  • Sound (still waiting on the digital cable to arrive)


To install I had to select "ACPI Disabled" at the boot prompt and now my lilo.conf contains "acpi=off", otherwise everything just worked without any hassle.


HTH someone looking for info.
