    What is this? Gallium 0.4 on NVA5

    After today's update Details now says Graphics - Gallium 0.4 on NVA5.

    Over the past year or so, Details has had the occasional moment of clarity when it recognised my Nvidia GT220 as a GT210. But those moments quickly passed. Usually it shows Graphics - Unknown.

    Now its says Gallium 0.4 on NVA5. I am using Nouveau. And I am curious. Synaptic cannot find anything installed called Gallium.

    From a little research it seems that Gallium is the bit in Nouveau that does OpenGl rendering.

    From here I see that NVA5 is a code name for Nvidia GT210, GT220 and others.

    So, from now onwards let it be known that I have a NVA5. So, there!

    Regards.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
