Fedora Core 6: Wifi vs. nVidia drivers on the D620
- Has anyone conquered the IRQ issues that this combo seems to present?
Fedora Core 6: Dell D620/Dell 1390 PCI-e Wifi/Broadcom 4311/nVidia
GeForce Go 7300
The ndiswrapper works for an indefinite amount of time before either
the system throws an IRQ error for the wifi card and I lose
connectivity to the local wireless lan or the whole system just
freezes and requires a hard reboot.
* proprietary closed src nvidia driver (yuck)
* i386 install of FC6
* have read somewhere that nv driver will stop the problems from
happening but you lose all 3d accelleration the proprietary nvidia
Mostly love the laptop and the eye-candy available via
compiz/beryl/etc.. Amazing really.
Thanks for any tips.
Did you ever get a response on the Broadcom 4311 issue? Ihave had the dell e1505 since June and never have I gotten the Broadcom 4311 to work. I run Ubuntu but someone has said Gentoo would get the thing to work.
I kinda gave up on the wireless and jsut use the lan line
