just did the command and it worked. i see my drivers r "nv" and in the past these drivers havent worked. i've used the "versa" drivers and they have worked perfectly. how do i install the versa drivers?

vesa drivers are generic. edit xorg.conf file and set Driver to "vesa" in Vedio Driver section.
