Failing to load module "nvidia" Quadro FX 3800M on OpenSUSE 11.2 x86_64
 
4 Attachment(s)
I have a new Lenovo W701DS laptop that has an Nvidia Quadro FX 3800M graphics card. I am using OpenSUSE 11.2 x86_64 (2.6.31.12-0.2-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-03-16 21:25:39 +0100 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux).

The latest NVIDIA graphics drivers have been manually installed (x86_64 256.35). After installation I have tried initiating sax2 with the following commands "sax2", "sax2 -r", and "sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia". In all cases sax fails to start. The sax log reports that it was unable to load the nvidia module. Or reports that no screens are found.

If I uninstall the Nvidia driver gdm will start using the vesa driver. I have also tried using the Nvidia drivers from the OpenSUSE repositories with out luck (these are working fine on my W700DS with a Quadro FX 3700M).

Attached are the output files from Nvidia bug report, Nvidia Installer, SaX, and Xorg.

Any assistance in getting this up and running would be greatly appreciated.

Still having no luck with this issue. Have reverted to the standard VESA frame buffer driver so that I can use the laptop.

Any ideas?

Hi Nilam,

Could you attach a dump of your ACPI tables? (output of `acpidump -b`)
