The answer is definitely maybe. In the past I have had both success and
failure with the nVidia (and ATI fglrx) binary drivers on RT patched
kernels. To be fair I have had the same problems with most proprietary
3rd party kernel modules (Vmware I am looking at you and your crappy
I would not say that you could not use the binary drivers, but I would
avoid that hardware if possible (newer ATI devices use the radeonhd
driver which is part of the stock kernel and should work better with RT
kernels, I have not tested this yet).
