l'm trying to understand the sax2 tool

I'm switching between nv driver to nouveau. Now the command sax2 -a -m 0 X=nouveau, the syntax might be correct. If so, I still don't really understand the -m switch. When I man sax2, it said card X=module, what is card stand for, 0 meaning the first card and so on. X means X as short for XORG. A bit more explanation would be great

Hey lhorace.

The syntax of the command you posted is incorrect. The correct one is this (I'm using the ATI Driver as an example):

 SaX2 -r -m 0=fglrx
Replace fglrx with nouveau. This should solve your problem
