    Is this the correct driver info i need?

    In Mepis (debian), i uninstalled the nvidia 1.0.8178+2 drivers because they were not for my card. A Geforce Ti 4200.

    Then i went back to the drivers i used before, the nvidia 1.0.7174+1. These show to be installed in Synaptic.

    When i go to the display properties, instead of the number of the driver there (and the showing of the video card ya use and all that info) i just see Nvidia-settings configuration. 5 checked items that i can't look at.

    It certainly wasen't what i saw before. Does anybody know what i need to add to the nvidia 1.0.7174+1 drivers to make them work properly? my screen res is 1024 X 768. it looks fine, except my gaming is not happenening.

    when i click on unreal 2004, i have a giant slow motion and then a freeze and reboot.

    anyway, anybody know what i can do to fix this? thx

    In your Mepis OS Center, go to Mouse and Display and pick the NVIDIA tab. If "Official nvidia driver" isn't checked, check it and hit Apply.
    If it's already checked, then open up a console and type glxinfo. Look about 1/3 down through the output for a line that says "OpenGL version string." If it says something about nvidia, then all is good. If it says something about mesa, then we'll have to scour the X config file.
