Video Drivers?

I’m just wondering if there is any driver support for my video card ?

Im running haiku and I went on devices and here is the detailed info of my video card hope that helps

Device name: G86 [GeForce 8500 GT]
Device Paths: Not implmented
device/bus: pci
device/flags: 1
device/id: 0x421
device/interface: 0x0
device/subtype: 0x0
device/type: 0x3
device/vendor: 0x10de
Driver used: Not implemented
Manifacturer: NVIDIA Corporation
pci/bus: 4
pci/device: 0
pci/domain: 0
pci/funciontion: 0

I’m not sure I understand what you’re asking. You say you’re running Haiku, so it must be working okay with your video card. Are you saying that there are certain features or specifications of your video card that Haiku doesn’t utilize?

Otherwise, if it works with your video card, why would you need a driver specifically for it?

I can load haiku but I have to use the fail-video option. It works but the screen looks all stretched

Our nvidia driver does not support 8xxx or newer.

They should port nVidia driver from Linux or something. Recent Noveau is very impressive.
