    Sabayon has the nvidia drivers installed by default, Ubuntu Feisty will install them for you with the simple check of a box

    But in my opinion if you want to learn Linux you should at least install the drivers yourself

    Well i can. I downloaded from the nvidia site. Goto runlevel 3 and installs no problem. Im running 32-bit openSuSe 10.2 and everytime I boot up, system will lock up at random points (i.e: after logging in, during boot up) I guess the title of the thread should be "Problems after installing nvidia driver" but Im asking if other distros have the driver pre-installed, which is Sabayon.

    I had no problems before the nvidia driver, and after booting seems diffucult for Suse as it locks up at random, booting into Xen for somereason goes straight into command line and I've tried executing runlevel 5 gui but it refused to do so.

    Im running Athlon 64 3200, 1GB DDR33, 3 Maxtor Hard Disks @ 160GB each, nVidia FX5700.
