    Which driver is right for me?

    So I have been trying to get a game to work in Steam for some time now and I think it's a driver problem. I need to install the proprietary driver required by my graphics card. I attempted to follow the directions here but I ran into some problems.

    /sbin/lspci | grep VGA

    Returns...

    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 18)
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GT216M [GeForce GT 330M] (rev a2)

    I'm wasn't entirely sure about which one I needed but I assumed it meant "GeForce 8/9/200/300/405" and if not I'll just deal with it on reboot, not a big deal. However when I tried to install, as per their directions, I get "No package akmod-nvidia-340xx available." and it just pulls up dependencies.

    So two questions....

    Is this the correct Nvidia driver? And where is the package I am looking for?


    Note: I do have both RPM Fusion (free/non-free) packages.


    Thanks.

    Check you have the free and non-free repos and their -updates repos all enabled. The package does exist.

    How do I check this?

    Yes they are both installed. If I try to install them again I get a "Nothing to do" return.

    Do you know if this is the correct driver? It's kind of hard to tell.

    Look at the RPMFusion guide https://rpmfusion.org/Howto/nVidia
