I've been trying suggestions from the Nvidia forums on updating the drivers for my Geoforce FX 256 MB card. If anybody using this distro is having similar problems with screen lock-ups and has made some progress, let me know what you did. The generic drivers work, but can't be sure if my card is being used efficiently. Some of the games added with Synaptic are jittery or freeze completely on the generic "nv". Tried getting the updated driver through Synaptic, but I may have pooched the kernel.
One question that might help some people. Is your card a 5200-5600 card, a 5800 card or a 5900/5950 card? I think some of the cards use a different GPU than the others. Since whatever card you have couldn't possibly be that old either, you may want to wait a while and see if something appears.
