Re: 2D,3D,nvidia,nv?

I strongly suggest to use nvidia driver, of course no one needs 3D
accel (except to play) but the experience is better, if the nvidia
driver works for you without flaws use it.

And that's true if you don't use 3D or at least xscreensaver-gl use a
cheap video card and give that one to a young boy hungry to play

Good luck

I'm running etch amd64 and installing xorg for the first time on this

As I understand it (AIUI?), if I use the nv driver I get 2D hardware
accel and if I use the nvidia driver (glx, kernel modules, et al) I get
3D accel.

I don't do games.  I've got a monitor that will do 1600x1280 & 75 Hz.  I
want a nice clear image for daily work.  Later on (when I get a video
capture card), I want to do some light video editing, watching TV, DVDs,

Do I need the 3D or other goodies of the nVidia driver or should I just
go with the nv?
