One thing that is a plus with nv is that X has some support for it,

Does anyone know if there are *any* contemporary graphics cards
that have 3D acceleration supported by some flavour of
open-source x.org?  Doesn't have to be a super-fast 'leet gamer
system to be better than a non-accelerated frame buffer.

Matrox used to have a reputation for goodness (I used to have a
G400 or the like), but it's been a long time...

(I'm currently using a lowish-end NVidia card under the x.org nv
driver, but it has issues (of which no 3D accel is but one...)

Cheers,



Try the 'vesa' xorg driver. It may not be fancy or all that accelerated but it works quite well. I have an nvidia card and cannot get it to work for the life of me. the drive attached, but nothing happens after that. It might be the fact that I have a PCI express card. But the vesa driver is working just fine for me.


I had a PCI-X nvidia card that I couldn't get to work, neither with the nvidia nor the nv driver. But it turned out to be a flaw in the motherboard BIOS. Updating the motherboard BIOS (which was an intel server board) fixed the problem for me. Maybe you have a similar problem, or maybe not.
