Moved to 'Hardware'

Nvidia legacy drivers support following chipsets:

ION is not listed so i would go with latest.

Hi,

dear brokeman, as I willnow consider to switch to the last Porteus v2.1 which nVidia driver must I select in the Porteus buikd wizard (http://build.porteus.org/) ?
Is it the Current 319, the Legacy 304, the Legacy 173 or is it better to not select one and test them one by one later when Porteus as been correctly installed ?

Sincerely thanks and have a nice day,

Miguipda ;-)

@miguipda
Hi
Q:is it the same hardware as at the first post, and if yes, which Driver did you
use till now?.....if all was good, take the same or the nearby.

The quick and dirty solution:
download a standard iso and the 3 driver and test which will work best.
It will give you the answer in less than 30 min. :)
