Re: Geforce 4 MX 440 64M driver problem

Sounds like you attempted to install the closed-source "nvidia"
driver.  Nothing wrong with that, but as you've discovered, it's not
as easy as using the open-source "nv" driver.  My advice: try using
the open-source driver.


  sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

When it asks you what driver you should use, select "nv".  When
dpkg-reconfigure finishes, run:

  sudo dexconf

This will update /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 according to your choices.  

It's fine that lspci outputs "Unknown device 0181".  Important thing
is that it recognizes it as an nVidia video card.
