9 It also has a GeForce Go 7300 which is still supported. 304.137 of the
10 proprietary driver is still in the tree. From what I can tell you will
11 be better off with the proprietary driver over Nouveau.
13 I question if it can handle running Kodi. Maybe you would want to use
14 something else for video playback/media management?
16 You definitely would want to cross-compile everything for this machine
17 on a modern system, with minimal dependencies since you only have 512 MB
18 of RAM to work with. You can set Kodi to start with xinitrc or you can
19 have something like SDDM show Kodi as an option.
21 Nouveau may work for you other than hardware acceleration of video
22 decoding. Maybe that CPU can handle 480P MPEG-2 and non-HD XviD but
23 almost certainly not x264 or HEVC (I doubt the OpenGL renderer can help
24 here). If you are willing to convert files and use lower resolutions
25 then this may be acceptable.
29 Conflicting information here as Nvidia says there are no VDPAU features
30 supported by this graphics card.
