OK, thanks for the link, but how do I for instance locate the Linux driver for the GeForce 8800M GTX? Does it have something to do with the numbers beside the listing?

that file only means that the latest available driver works for the boards you want ^^
go to nvidia's website and have fun with the messy 169 series

OK, here's some links I found. It looks like they're all supported.

http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...ppendix-a.html

http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html

So my guess is that their latest Linux driver covers all of the ones I listed.


It's just stupid how NVIDIA doesn't have any of them available on the main driver finder and download page here.
