I am trying to activate Compiz, realized at one point that had to dowlowd drivers from Synaptic, however the reference is as follow: nvidia_180.xx package or others different numbers. How could I find those numbers? Nothing written on the box. On the PC Linux control Center under Hardware, Video Card the information that I get is: Identification Vendor: nVidia Corporation Description: NV37GL [Quadro FX 330/GeForce PCX 5300] Media class: VGA compatible controller Connection Bus: PCI PCI domain: 0 Bus PCI #: 1 PCI device #: 0 PCI function #: 0 Vendor ID: 0x10de Device ID: 0x00fc Sub vendor ID: 0x1462 Sub device ID: 0x9680 Misc Module: Card:NVIDIA GeForce FX series But no indication of something that would indicate the Package number. Therefore don't know which nVidia Kernel module to install. Any help on the Kernell module, would be appreciated, but even better how to find this package number, should I had to do search in the future. Thanks
Hi Grump, Thanks for taking time to reply. Regarding Compiz, you need a Video Card who's more advanced than most On-Board cards,(with more graphic capacity) I have tried Compiz once, on Ubuntu and it was cool. Now that I am using PC Linux O.S. would like to continue using it (and learn about all his capacities) but before that must activate the Video Card to give me the graphic environment. Therefore my question on which set of Drivers to activate in order to make my graphic card fully operational.
