Which driver?

I have an nvidia 6200 and I cannot figure out which driver to use, I think it would be the 71xx but I want to make sure before I try and mess something up.

Thanks

Re: Which driver?

I'm not an nvidia user, but 71xx are legacy drivers to my knowledge, like, 16mb legacy.

96xx is legacy too, it looks like GeForce3 era, which is old.

I believe you're able to use the plain old 'nividia' package.

Check the nVidia site it should tell you just fine what driver to use for what card.

Re: Which driver?

I have a Geforce 6200 and I use the standard nvidia driver 169.12. It works well. The driver from testing works with kernel 2.6.25

Re: Which driver?

Post-GeForce4 is already "non-legacy".


I need real, proper pen and paper for this.
