I am using sarge and the 2.6.16 backportrs.org kernel, would like to
update to 2.6.17 if possible.
I have installed a new video card and now I need NVidia proprietary
drivers. (Before this I had an older ATI card that worked fully with open
So I have questions:
- Is there a way to run the NVidia proprietary driver with the bpo 2.6.17
kernel? Is the correct (and working) interface already packaged; if not,
will an installation relying on the kernel source work correctly?
- If 2.6.17 is not available, how about 2.6.16?
- Will the newer NVidia proprietary drivers, required for 2.6.16 or
2.6.17, work with XFree86 from sarge? If not, will they work with X.Org
This will be my first installation of a proprietary video driver, so I
don't know much about them yet...
Yours, Mikhail Ramendik
