Hi there
I started to install X server and at the moment I had to chose
"Options for xorg-drivers 7.3"

There is a hole list of drivers.
My video card is NVidia (this is all that I know)
Do I need all other drivers like i810, via, vga, vesa ... etc, or is enough to install just nv drivers

And another question
I have an old computer that works in text mode. Can I found what kind of video adapter uses?

thanks

No and yes :)

Open it and have a look.
