SubjectRe: What Athlon chipset is most stable in Linux?
Date
The 762 North Bridge definitely has AGP issues and will lock up with GeForce 
3 and nVidia's latest official drivers. I just got my hands on beta drivers
and the lockups appear to have gone away --- so far ;-) Their binary only
kernel module has functions with names ike "AMD_FixupGART",
"AMD_ApplyChipsetUpdates" etc.
