Default Freespire

Hello,

I'm using Freespire and trying to configure a Nvidia FX5500 graphics card.

I tried compiling the 2.6.14 kernel with the 8762 driver, which resulted in a black screen after Freespire booted.

Which kernel & driver should I try?

TIA - and any response is appreciated.

I see Freespire is Debian based... maybe have a gander at the Debian issues/fixes in these forums.
