The driver from Nvidia's website is non-free software. gNewSense is about providing users like you with a completely free computing environment. Helping you install this driver would be the opposite of what this project stands for, so we won't help you with that.

The best that gNewSense can offer you now is the nv driver, which you're probably using by default if you have Nvidia hardware. The nouveau project is making a free driver with more features (like 3D support), but that's not finished or easily installable yet, as far as I know.

Its all right if you and other don't want to help me with this, because of what you said. I can understand that.

Hopefully you can understand me, that i won't like to use my new computer with a resolution fo 800* 600. You can't even read pages from the interment. And i want to stay by gNewSense because i like it. So i have to take my "taschenlampe" and find my way one my one, its somehow interesting.

Until about a year ago I was still on 800x600 myself, and if the 15" CRT monitor I was using then hadn't broken I would still be using it. Websites that are hard to read on 800x600 are badly designed.

Anyway, if you're not satisfied with the products and service that a hardware manufacturer is providing, please contact them to explain your wishes. The video chip market for free software users currently ranges from bad to worse, so we must leverage consumer pressure to make this situation better.
