I have just installed 64studio version 2.1, 32 bits version. I have a graphic card GeForce 7600GS, which works, but the resolution cant be better than 800x600. I thought I should install some drivers for this card, so I started to find some with synaptic. The problem is that there are no repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list, so nothing at all is found. After some search I found info at the page: I added deb 64studio main into source.list and found some nvidia pkgs. nvidia-kernel-2.6.21-1-multimedia-amd64 nvidia-glx After the installation of these, no nv or nvidia is added into /etc/X11/xorg.conf. I rebooted the the system and had some errors during boot, but no changes in the graphics.. So the questions are: Which repos are needed? How can I change resolution on the screen/install the correct drivers for the card? Thanks! Jonas

I did it anyway, and obiously X didn't start after reboot... There are still no nvidia entries in xorg.conf. I tried to uninstall nvidia-glx, then I got the messages: cant remove /usr/lib/ no such file or directory, and some more errors.. I just made touch and I was able to remove nvidia-glx, and resintall xorg... Any ideas? Jonas

After the installation of the packages you have to change the driver name manually to "nvidia" in 64 Studio 2.1 in the xorg.conf
