    Display driver??


    I am just wondering how i can tell what display driver my pc is running? I had the NVidia driver running in SuSE 9.0 yesterday, but today have upgraded to 9.1 as it came out on ftp download yesterday. How can i tell if it's running the standard driver, or the nvidia driver?

    You can check lsmod to see if the nvidia driver is loaded/being used. You can do glxinfo with X running to see if 3D accel. is working. And you can check your XF86Config to see what drive it is telling X to use.
