NVIDIA Graphics Card Users
If you have NVIDIA graphics and plan to set up a graphical environment, you have a couple of choices when it comes to graphics drivers -- the proprietary NVIDIA drivers provided by NVIDIA corporation itself, or the Open Source Nouveau drivers. If you don't know which to choose, we recommend starting with the proprietary NVIDIA drivers first for optimal performance on a wider range of hardware.
;If using proprietary NVIDIA graphics...: It is safe to leave the {{c|nomodeset}} parameter in {{c|/etc/boot.conf}} as the proprietary drivers handle setting the graphics mode themselves. However, you will need to ''blacklist the nouveau modules'' so they do not load upon boot. See [[Package:NVIDIA_Linux_Display_Drivers|the NVIDIA Linux Display Drivers page]] for information on how to get these drivers set up.
;If using Nouveau...: {{c|nomodeset}} should be ''should be removed'' as explained in the '''Other Graphics Cards''' section below.
