Default Linux Drivers

What category would Ubuntu 7.06 go under? Linux x86? Linux x64? I'm wondering because i want drivers for my 6200 Graphics Card and I'm looking on nvidia's website and i don't see Debian or Ubuntu for the categories. I just see all the windows, Solaris, Linux x86, Linux x64, and Free BSD.

Well the 64 bit version would be Linux X64 and the 32 bit verison Linux X86.

Also BSD drivers would also likely work.

Yea, I would go with Linux x86 or Linux x64. Those drivers will work on all Linux systems, just check wheter it's 32 or 64 bit.

If you are using ubuntu 7.04 go to system-administration-restricted drivers manager and enable drivers. Restart and all is well.
