I'm really new to Linux, and I have an old FX5200 which I'm not sure if its working.
This is what I did: I stopped lightdm, then installed and blacklisting first everything related to Nouveau (including nvidia-current and all their variants.)
But then, when I restarted I noticed that even though I was running at my monitor's native resolution (1600x900 - LG E2041), Ubuntu didn't recognized my graphics card and I had 16.3 mbs less of RAM (I have 495.7 out of 512), probably because the integrated VIA video card was using them. But an application called NVIDIA X Server Settings was telling me that there was an FX5200 working.
It confuses me, can you help me?
