Subject: hal, how to chose between nvidia and nv
Date: Wed, 4 Nov 2009 11:08:26 +0100
Hi all,

I have no xorg.conf, so hal does all the conf stuff for me.
My problem (I think) is that I have both modules in my sytem:


[I] x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers

$ grep nv /etc/make.conf 
VIDEO_CARDS="vesa nvidia"


and seems that Xorg tries some drivers and finally loads nv driver:

from less /var/log/Xorg.0.log, some relevant info:

[..]

from here all refers to NV.

Am Iworng or my xorg uses nv driver? if so, how may I force hal to use
nvidia driver? what about dri module? why is it failling to load it?

TIA,
