http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I have been trying to set up an old machine which has a NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX NV18 graphics card. Unfortunately I didn't find any working graphics driver. Using the open source nouveau driver resulted in heavy flickering, general distortion, and a black bar on top of the screen. Then I tried two versions of the Nvidia's binary driver, but the older one doesn't support KMS and the newer one doesn't support the graphics card. The screen resolution using the vesa driver is even worse. I did try installing the updated packages from the xorg-edgers fresh X crack ppa, but this didn't change anyth (Hardware)
