Question about Nvidia on my Toshiba


Okay, can startx now and I have other question. From the Sarge package
list, I can see a package called [nvidia-kernel-2.4.27-1-686] but I
cannot find similar package for kernel 2.6. I'm using 2.6.7 kernel. Is
the Nvidia driver supported internally by the 2.6 kernel? From
XFree86.0.log can be seen that NV driver supports my GeForce4 420 Go.

(II) Primary Device is: PCI 01:00:0
(--) Chipset GeForce4 420 Go found

Does that mean in my XF86Config-4, Driver "nv" is capable of supporting
3D acceleration? From other article, I learn that must change to Driver

Section "Device"
    Identifier    "nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 420 Go]"
    Driver        "nv"
    BusID        "AGP:01:00:0"
    Option        "NoDCC" "1"
    Option        "IgnoreEDID" "1"

Please advice. Thx in advance.
