I'm trying out linux distros. My desktop has an Nvidia GTX 460 card. Does any one have recommendations for 64 bit linux distros - derived from either Debian/Ubuntu or Redhat- which have 3d hardware acceleration support for Nvidia cards out of the box? (No Ubuntu please - I don't care for Unity)
The distro shouldn't have "idealogical" issues with closed/binary drivers from Nvidia! (This was true of Redhat earlier)
I've tried out linux mint 17.1 so far, and it was frequently freezing and locking up the GUI. It does work fine on my older Core i5 laptop running intel graphics.
Any help would be appreciated!
ps: I don't want to work with VMs.
