I have tried to install the latest nvidia drivers onto my Ubuntu 6.10.
It seems to be working as the driver in xorg.conf is lablelled nvidia and im still getting a picture. I can also access the Config panel as shown below.
My concern is based mainly on the device section of the xorg.conf file, which currently reads:
Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NVIDIA Default Card"
However whenever I have looked at examples of people changing settings, it has many details filled in about their graphics card as well as many more categories. I understand that you can add options into this section but i assumed this information wasn't just filling in card names. Correct me if i'm wrong.
My question is should the xorg.conf file still look like this, how do i get the card information in, and could this be causing some of the No Video Device Available or along those lines messages im getting when trying to run certain things.
I posted it here as I feel like a noob and my understanding of linux and ubuntu is very limited. Please be nice
Edit: I understand the Identifier is just a label, it just struck me as odd i didnt have options like the example belowe by default
VendorName "Intel Corp."
BoardName "82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device"
