Unfortunately, support for the GeForce didn't come out until 4.x. If you're using Woody or Sid, just 'apt-get install xserver-xfree86'. That's the unified 4.x X server, you want to use the "nv" driver module. After installing xserver-xfree86, double check that /etc/X11/X points to /usr/bin/X11/XFree86 (check with '/bin/ls -l /etc/X11/X'). If it isn't pointing to the right file, then 'rm /etc/X11/X' then 'ln -s /usr/bin/X11/XFree86 /etc/X11/X'. Then run 'dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86'. If you're using Potato, you have two options: you can either upgrade to Woody or Sid, or install XFree 4.x packages which have been backported to Potato. The latter is available at http://people.debian.org/~cpbotha/ .. Read the READ.THIS files here and there, they'll give you instructions on how to do the install. Hope that helps :) P.S.: (nitpick) it's not "x windows" or "x-windows" or "xwindows" :) It's X, or X11, or the X windowing system, or if you use XFree86 (which you do), XFree or XFree86. :) -- .--=====-=-=====-=========----------=====-----------=-=-----=. / David Barclay Harris Aut agere, aut mori. \ \ Clan Barclay Either action, or death. / `-------======-------------=-=-----=-===-=====-------=--=----'
