I have an nvidia card. A geforce 210 which is reasonably recent. When I
installed mageia rc before release, the config part of the installer, when I
configured the video, asked me if I wanted to install the nvidia driver from
online. It installed quick and easy and the driver works great. So im kinda
confused by this conversation. Did anyone bother to do the video
configuration from the installer or is this about the live installer? Does
it lack this feature?
