33 <p>In many cases, both binary and open-source drivers exist. Open-source drivers are preferable since we're using Linux and open source is one of its underlying principles. Sometimes, binary drivers are the only option, like with nVidia's cards. If you have an nVidia card, see the <uri link="nvidia_tsg.xml">nVidia troubleshooting guide</uri>. This guide describes how to use XFree-DRM's open-source drivers. Supported cards are listed later in the document. Binary drivers include media-video/mgavideo for Matrox and media-video/ati-drivers for ATI cards. Other open-source drivers include media-video/kyro-kernel for KyroII cards and media-video/ati-gatos for ATI cards, which aim to support ATI's video capabilities more fully.</p> 33 <p>In many cases, both binary and open-source drivers exist.
