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.
