Thanks for your help. After further effort to find the problem, I prefer to go to Xvesa which is simple to instal and is lower weight in memory.
I only have 468M of RAM !!!! So Xvesa is a finally a good solution.

thanks.

sorry to barge in but i know there used to be a website where you could paste in your lspci output and it gave the name of the module you needed.
i have this and i would like to try the Xorg modules first:
Code: [Select]
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 06c4 (rev a3)
does anyone know what i am talking about? i cannot find it. i used to use for making gentoo kernels.
Thank you for your help!

pciids doesn't know that card, what's the marketing name?

Anyway, we don't ship nouveau currently as it was unstable, so the only Xorg module for Nvidia is xf86-video-nv (2d-only). Whether it works depends on how new your card is.

OK, I don't think nv supports Fermi.

modprobe via_chrome9.ko
