Thanks for the overview. I assume this is all related to the NVidia
support with free drivers. It depends largely on the combination of
kernel (nouveau module), libdrm-nouveau1a and
A good candidate to check for support for your card would probably have
been the Knoppix 6.5 magazine edition from march 2011 including the
proprietary nvidia drivers.
