No Nvidia on that particular motherboard so the OP is on the safe side. @OP: I have just installed FBSD amd 64 2 weeks ago to benefit of +4 GB of RAM and until now i didn't have any kind of problem in compiling and running applications. My box is a web/mail/vpn/router/samba (yes i know there shouldn't be that many services on the box, but tell my boss that) and all the apps are working like a charm. v > > Regards, > Johan Hendriks > > No virus found in this outgoing message. > Checked by AVG - http://www.avg.com > Version: 8.0.176 / Virus Database: 270.9.12/1824 - Release Date: 2-12-2008 > 9:31 > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" > _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
