Yes, it is an nvidia card. Here is the device section from xorg.conf:
BoardName "GeForce 6150 LE"
Is absence of "HWCursor" the same as "HWCursor" "off". In SuSE, Yast builds
this file. There is an "options" button where I can select "HWCusor" which
adds "HWCursor" to the Device section. Is the driver default "HWCusor"
so that I need to explicitly edit xorg.conf and add "HWCursor" "off"?
