You just need to look at /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change "vesa" to "nv"
- that should do it. My Xorg.conf file reads simply.
I have a 27" monitor that needs 1920 x 1080. Vesa looks terrible for me
as it doesn't get past 1280x 1024 (if I remember rightly). It's a shame
as this card is a) cheap and b) looks pretty good when it does its stuff
The other downside is that most of the Screensavers shipped with OI
don't work for me.
Best of luck
