Haven't tried the sgfxi method yet.!
But went to nvidia site and downloaded what I believed to be the correct "6 series"driver which certainly list the 6200 LE as a supported card. However, running it results in
Code: Select all
WARNING: The NVIDIA GeForce 6200 LE GPU installed in this system is supported through the NVIDIA 304.xx legacy Linux graphics drivers. Please visit http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html for more information. The 325.15 NVIDIA Linux graphics driver will ignore this GPU. OK WARNING: You do not appear to have an NVIDIA GPU supported by the 325.15 NVIDIA Linux graphics driver installed in this system. For further details, please see the appendix SUPPORTED NVIDIA GRAPHICS CHIPS in the README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com. OK ERROR: You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing. For further details, please see the section INSTALLING THE NVIDIA DRIVER in the README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com. OK
So taking their advice, have located and downloaded the recommended 304.xx version. (and if I proceed with that will also embrace the need to drop down to cli rather than a terminal window).
However, before doing so would the preferred next attempt be the sgfxi method?
