In the xorg.conf file, if you want to use nouveau instead of nv, you have to change 'nv' into 'nouveau'.
That, I understand. But then, why install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau?
That was why I asked. I thought, "NV" = Nvidia. Isn't it better than Nouveau? Then, why use Nouveau? Why not just use the original xorg you posted the link to, and forget about Nouveau?
Does "NV" give acceleration? Sorry for all the questions....
Excellent! Thanks so much for your kind help and sorry for the stupid questions. I just wanted to make absolutely sure. So, we had been so incredibly close in the first place. All we needed was the xorg.conf you provided. Lovely! Looking forward to getting the machine up and running with acceleration.
