I am unable to get a good(non-flickering)display using the nv driver with my Nvidia 440 MX card. When I do a manual kernel config I don't see any separate drivers(riva, rivafb,etc)to install. Manually editing my XFree86Config-4 file hasn't worked yet. Is this a USE flag issue? Is there a riva or nvidia USE flag you need to build your system with? Please help because I can't stand to look at or use this desktop this way.

Thanks,

Jeff :(

I used xf86config and it worked fine for me - I have the OEM apple version of the same card, and no issues here. ( I'm using nv)

I have a very picky display, so I had to set the horizontal/vertical sync rates fairly finely. Let me know if you want me to post my config.

I ended up editing a buddy's xf86config file and it worked great. Thanks for your reply :lol:
