    Is my video card supported by Sabayon?


    It's a EVGA e-Geforce 7300 GT 512MB and I checked for it here -- appropriate Sabayon wiki page -- but couldn't find it.

    What I really want to know is, will I be able to use all the beryl-related eye-candy? Does anyone have any experience of using this card with Sabayon (with all the resource-sucking, eye candy, switched on)?

    Thanks

    FYI.

    Sabayon is happily installed, with the eye-candy turned up to max, and my graphics card is handling it all very well.

    GeForce 7300 GT 512mb video card

    How'd you get it to work? I have the same card and am using Sabayon 3.4f. I haven't been able to get the drivers installed correctly. (Followed the wiki)
    Thanks!

    Fixed

    Well, installing nvidia's drivers made my system unbootable. Just came up with a black screen after the normal boot process. I fixed this and reverted to my old problem of having a screen with no XGL support. But in the end I reinstalled the entire system (from the same DVD) and it works well now and so does compiz-fusion, no setup required!

    So anyone thinking of buying a GeForce 7300GT 512b video card to use with Sabayon and who want to use compiz, it works.

    Freezing! ...Fixed!

    Spoke too soon! Freezes very often. This is linux, it shouldn't freeze.

    Downgraded the nvidia drivers from nvidia-100.14.11-r11 to 100.14.09-r10.

    Everything (including compiz) has been working great. Problem solved.

    I had a few problems with Sabayon when I upgraded to 3.4e (I just couldn't get world update to work), so I uninstalled it, and am now using Fedora 7.

    Glad to hear you got your problems sorted out.
