My test machine has an Elsa Synergy 2 AGP card in it at the moment. I've been having some strange problems with video under VL 6.0 RC3 on this machine, and I'm wondering if the Nvidia drivers on the CD will work with it? lspci gives me this for the card:

Code:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV5 [RIVA TNT2/TNT2 Pro]

Do the drivers included support the old TNT2-base cards?

Sorry, meant to come back and say that yes, they do run the card, and the install from RC3 was fine.

For some reason, modelines (generated by xvidtune) work correctly with them, even though they didn't work consistently with the open source nv driver.
