Did some double checking. I'm running on 2.6.18-5-486. The nvidia kernel module is the one for 2.6.18-4-486. Installing the module for 5-486 will probably help...


...so dumb question. Running the AMD Duron (1.3), which is better: the i486, the i686, or the k7 modules (and kernel)?

The more specific the better.  I don't know the Duron.  I'm assuming
that its not amd64.  Will it run k7?

Again, did some research. The Duron is an Athlon fork (?). So it should run k7. But other than installing the nvidia kernel specific to what I am running now, I'll save the kernel tweaking for another extended weekend.... ;->

	Thanx again.
