    Thumbs down Re: ubuntu 8.04 problem with Geforce 8600 gt on XPS M1530

    There is a bug report for this issue. That driver does not yet work with the newest kernel and the Geforce 8600MGT / 8400MGS. The beta driver however works. I haven't tested the x64 driver yet, but I expect it to work just fine.

    Btw, are you sure you have a amd64? I did not see that option when I bought my M1530.

    I am using 64-bit Ubuntu 8.04 and don't have that problem on my XPS M1530 with 8600M GT - the driver works without a white screen of death.

    Intel Core 2 Duo processors are AMD64 compatible.
