Re: Just stumped (first time on Linux)
Some time ago I posted a walkthrough for installing nvidia drivers under Debian. You can find it here:
There sould be everything you need from scratch. However, if you still need a hand, just ask!
Laptop HP Pavilion zv5000: AMD Athlon 3000+ (32 bit); Nvidia GeForce4 440 Go! 64 Mb, 8774 driver revision; 768 MB PCI2700; nForce3 mobo chipset and audiocard, other uninteresting stuff... Debian unstable-experimental, custom 2.6.17 kernel debian-patched
Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.
