Nvidia and nomodeset kernel parameter

view full story
linux-howto

http://forums.opensuse.org – It's documented in the howto's that you need to have the nomodeset kernel parameter specified if you want to run the proprietary Nvidia driver. But I read in certain posts that this is only required for "older" graphics cards. Can someone shed some light on this? Is the parameter ALWAYS required when running the nvidia driver, or only for certain graphic cards? (Distributions)
