Geforce 440 Go 64M with Debian on MD5400
I have a nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 440 Go 64M] VGA controller on my notebook MD5400 (FIC295), running with Debian (KDE).
To install the drivers, I tried to follow these instructions: http://desiato.tinyplanet.ca/~lsoren...dri-howto.html but I guess it did not work, since I got no 3d acceleration and the nvidia driver is not mentioned in the xorg.conf:
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file) # # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using # values from the debconf database. # # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page. # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.) # # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only* # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg # package. # # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated # again, run the following command: # sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Generic Keyboard" Driver "kbd" Option "XkbRules" "xorg" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" Option "XkbLayout" "de" Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys" EndSection Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Configured Mouse" Driver "mouse" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Monitor "Configured Monitor" EndSection
Anyone can tell me what's the problem and how to solve it?
The notebook I have is described here: http://www.staschke.de/linux/md5400-eng.html
Thanks in advance!

What driver have you got? 96.43.09? Why don't you install Ubuntu or something? I have Ubuntu and it's easy...
B.T.W I think you've been installed drivers and they works...
Now you have to reconfigure xorg.conf. You stop X-es, for KDE type in terminal (console) "sudo /etc/init.d/kdm stop" (or "killall kdm") and type "X -configure". Now you have new xorg.conf names xorg.conf.new in your home directory. Now type "sudo cp ~/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf" and "kdm start" and that's all! (for me and for Ubuntu 8.10!)
If you don't have drivers installed properly you can install Envy:
That application do it for you!
