I'm considering the purchase of a Dell 64bit laptop with an
NVIDIA video card.
- Intel Core 2 Duo Extreme Edition X9100 3.06GHz, 1067MHZ, 6M L2
Cache Dual Core (224-3154)
- 1GB NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700M Mobile Precision M6400 Covet (320-7518)
Anyone have any thoughts per Fedora 9/10 compatibility, potential
issues, gotcha's, etc ?
Rather than committing yourself to endlessly screwing around with
Nvidia's non-free binary blobs, and all the headaches they bring,
why don't you just get one of Dell's Linux-friendly laptops that
come with Intel video cards that are supported by x.org right out
of the box?
Because I'm a database consultant and I need a power-house machine.
The one I'm looking at has 2 internal drives in a RAID config, and I
can max out the memory at 16Gig
The Dell box I'm looking at however is certified to work with Red
Hat (RHEL 5).
