I've been trying for a while now to install a new graphics card. I had decided on an nvidia gt520--the gt550 was recommended, but I'm not a gamer and I don't like swatting flies with baseball bats. The problem is that pclos could not 'see' that card at all. I tried getting a driver shell from nVidia--which went through the motions of installing, but told me that what I was installing did not match the kernel, so no-go..
Things got kind of messy, so I did a re-install of the root partition and then tried the card again.. Everything worked fine!! My live cd is from February of this year, so it's not totally out of date, but there is a good-sized upgrade, which I have not done since the re-install.
Anyone have an idea what was left out of, or added to, the update that would affect the nVidia driver set???
