I have just installed Devian 6.0.6 (64bit) on my Linux platform and

How can I determine the chip set? The KDE Info Center doesn't list
video cards and the nVidia Grpahic Finder doesn't run in Linux.


Thanks in advance.


Try lspci | grep "nvidia"

try this:

lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GT216 [GeForce GT 220] (rev a2)

As you can see, i have the GeForce GT 220 model. The proper driver's
version for it you can find e.g. on the nvidia site
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx.
