I have a Voodoo 3000 AGP with SBLive 1024 working perfectly.
I also subscribe to the emu10k1 mailing list. It looked to me that the
original poster was trying to bad mouth Voodoo cards while singing praises
of the GeForce card.
What was your point in posting the snippet? Are you trying to point out
deficiencies in the SB Live driver? If so what do you expect. It's still
only in developer stage! When they finally release the drivers and these
kind of things happen then I will worry, until then if I want proper drivers
I'll use OSS or something.
As for the BP6. There are a number of problems with it, not just with the
live card. See the kernel mailing list where they suspect a BIOS bug.
