jockey didn't detect Nvidia Geforce 7300 GS until I apt-get updated and restarted.

Pressing <Enter> causes X to freeze. Workaround (ctrl+alt+prtscr+K) is good. Also, waiting for 5 minutes automatically kills X and on resumption bug is gone.

nvidia.ko not found in /lib/modules. There is an nvidia-current.ko in /lib/modules/2.6.32-13-generic/updates/dkmc

Jockey detects nVidia 6200 AGP.

jockey-gtk doesn't detect a geforce6200 to install proprietary driver.
--update--
In current daily build, bug 518067 solved.
Installation test case passed.

2 bugs still appears.

On first boot with open source drivers, right after Lucid installation, the final screen is messed up with horizontal lines. After Ctrl+Alt+F6 and back to Ctrl+Alt+F7, bug disappear and everything works fine.

Pressing <Enter> causes X to freeze. Maybe with open source driver only. Will continue testing.

nvidia.ko not found in /usr/modules. Have to use ALT + PRINT + K to restart X at gdm so computer will not lock on pressing enter. Jockey-gtk detected drivers and installed perfectly. GeForce GTS 250.
