The program says:
"No proprietary drivers are in use on this system"
But it doesn't say if it is talking about graphical drivers only or what.
Then, it lists two drivers:
NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version 173). NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) [recomended]
Both have exactly the same description. What is the difference between them, then??. Moreover,
- When I select the 1st one, it says: "This driver is not activated",and there's a button to "activate" it.
- When I select the 2nd one, it says: "This driver is activated but it is not currently in use", and the button is to "remove".
So, which one is in use?. Why, or what for, should I have one activated (enabled) but not in use? If a driver is in use it means it is activated? (as I see it can be activated but not in use).
What is the difference between deactivate and remove?, and what is the relationship between: installed, activated, in use, and enabled; and between: removed, disabled, inactive and not-installed?
Why can I activate the inactivated and remove (but not deactivate) the activated that is not in use?
All this is very puzzling...
What other drivers can I use for an Apple MacBook pro 3,1 and how? I see that there's a nouveau and I heard that there was going to be a new open source even better.

PLEASE STOP DELETING THIS: 1.As I have written several times, the system is Natty, and the questions remain the same. 2. The package nvidia-current is installed.
