the transformation so far. :)

A label on the front of the machine says it has an nVidia GeForce 7600
GPU, so I installed the appropriate nvidia driver

This was a disaster, resulting in no graphics login at all, and
eventually I reinstalled 11.2 just to get back to the generic driver
(none of my fiddling with xorg.conf seemed to work).

Is anyone else using this graphics card, and if so which driver are you


I have the GeForce 7600 GS here. It works fine. in 64 bit OpenSUSE 11.0

Oh, so do I, running
