I just read this artical
about making the Free Nvidia drivers and then look at this page
You can see what card you have by looking at the output of this
command to get the PCI ID. You can obtain this with the command lspci
Hard to read but it seems to be that last number on my system.
07:00.0 0300: 10de:0392 (rev a1)
So for me it was:
0392 G70 [GeForce 7600 GS] Thu Aug 23 23:26:00 2007
To find this in the list just use alt F in firefox and then type your
card type after being on the web page with the list of course. If you
don't know your card type then look in system info under openGL or
when the system boots.
As you can see almost 1/2 of the cards have never been seen by the
group. I am willing to bet that someone on this list has those missing
cards and can help them out. This is any easy way to help Linux out
without being some great programmer.
One of the main reasons we don't have very flashy 3d desktops is
because the free drivers are not out there for us to use to make it
happen. If you have these cards please help them out.
Also if you are on some other list like this maybe you could ask them
to help to.
Together we can make it happen.
