Any body using latest Linux ATI Video Driver 3.7.6 (as of 3/10/04)?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 14, 2004
Has anybody got these latest drivers to work on Mandrake 9.2 or any other distro?
Reason I'm asking is that I will be building a new computer soon and am thinking of getting an ATI 9600XT video card. I plan to dual boot between XP (mostly just to play games) and Mandrake 9.2 (for everything else).

Off of an apparently successful fresh install I get two different reports. Synaptic tells me that nouveau-firmware is not installed where as 'additonal drivers' tells me that Nouveau driver is installed.
Details tells me that I have VESA.
I am experiemnting with mir and I want to have the right nouveau driver. The current driver is very slow.
How can you tell which video driver is being used?

With the new xorg.conf files, everything is automatically detected. How can one find out which video driver xorg picked?
I'm using an old PCI video card and want to know if the vendor-specific driver is being used, or if the generic VESA driver is being used.
How to verify which video driver is active?

I've just installed Ubuntu 11.04 (64-bit). After installation I selected "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) [Recommended] from the Additional Drivers dialog box and let it download and install. Once I re-booted the Additional Drivers dialog box says that the driver is "activated but not currently in use" I can go into nVidia X Server Settings and change the screen resolution, etc. This leads me to believe that the nVidia driver is actually being used. A search of /etc/X11/xorg.conf turns up nothing. I guess that this file is no longer used? I have a Gforce 9500 GT graphics card. How do I determine which video driver is being used? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

How do I find out what video driver I'm using, add/remove etc? I looked in the xorg.conf file, but there's nothing of interest there; the file is almost empty. In general, is there any way to manage drivers from a convenient GUI interface, or does everything have to be done via text files?
Checking which wireless driver I am using?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 24, 2011
Hello, I did some search and found that I should use
sudo lshw -C network
and found that
configuration: broadcast=yes driver=usb driverversion=2.6.38-11-generic-pae firmware=N/A ip=10.134.155.132 link=no multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11bgn
However, I want to use the carl9170 driver since I need some functions in it.
I installed the compat-wireless through the backport repository.
I was wondering if there is a way to switch or force ubuntu to use carl9170?
how do i find out what video driver i'm using

The computer I have is used, and I just updated to ubuntu 9.10, and it won't go higher than a 800x600 resolution,
I found this page:
and the line:
is added to xorg.conf
but I don't think I have the same driver as the person who wrote that page.
can I just write "vboxvideo" anyway?
if not, how do I find out what I'm supposed to write there?
video driver issue stops me using X11 session, howto resolve this from command prompt
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 8, 2013
Something has spontaneously corrupted (I think!) the video driver, such that working inside an X session is pretty much impossible.
This is a problem that was not present when I switched off last night, but appeared this morning, and I've made no recent tweaks to my system. Symptoms are, on startup, random jaggy lines appear on my desktop, and icons are very slow to be drawn, often corrupted, often just the wrong icon, and the machine has slowed down to a crawl, when not to a complete stop. I take this to mean that the video driver is soaking up all the system resources in its attempts to make sense of the screen.
The problem appears only in my full-install Puppy 5.28, other linuxes and Windows work fine on the same machine, so I don't think it's a hardware thing.
Since the tools that might be available to me within an X session are unavailable, I need to resolve this from the command prompt... which is not my strong point, so this is a desperate cry for some help! All I *h
installing video driver on ARCH Linux

I have Arch Linux installed in console mode on an Intel-PC machine. My task is to write and run an OpenGL display program on the machine to check whether it meets the following conditions:
It would take at most 10% of total CPU usage
It would take at most 20% of total RAM
