In the very beginning we had SuSE, since Novell is aboard it is called
SUSE and nowadays the guys would like to see openSUSE.


The standard -- open source -- driver for nvidia graphics chips "nv"
does not support 3D graphics by default. If you prefer 3D graphics --
not a must -- you might need to install the closed source driver "nvidia".

The lines containing "vendor:", "device:" and "driver:" are most useful.

Another command to call could be "lspci -nn".
