GT 220 not supported by Linux drivers?
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'm getting sucked into the BOINC craze, and I'd like to use my old-ish headless print/file server, which has a GeForce GT 220, to crunch some data. I tried installing driver versions 256.44 and 256.35, but the kernel won't load the module because the module thinks the GT 220 is unsupported.

The README.txt and the NVIDIA web site both state that the GT 220 is, in fact, supported.

lspci:

05:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT216 [GeForce GT 220] (rev ff)

dmesg:

[604881.308196] NVRM: The NVIDIA GPU 0000:05:00.0 (PCI ID: 10de:0a20) installed
[604881.308198] NVRM: in this system is not supported by the 256.44 NVIDIA Linux
[604881.308201] NVRM: Supported NVIDIA GPU Products' in this release's README,
[604881.308204] NVRM: www.nvidia.com.
[604881.308214] nvidia: probe of 0000:05:00.0 failed with error -1
[604881.308511] NVRM: The NVIDIA probe routine failed for 1 device(s).
[604881.308514] NVRM: None of the NVIDIA graphics adapters were initialized!

I've attached my nvidia-bug-report. Please note I do not run X on this machine (nor do I intend to do so).

Thanks!

The problem appears to be that that particular card isn't responding to requests from the CPU:

I'd suggest re-seating the card to make sure it's firmly in the socket, and thoroughly cleaning all of the heat sinks and fans inside the case.

That's interesting, since I could still get console output from the card.

Nevertheless, I reseated it (and discovered the GPU fan was blocked -- by another fan, amusingly enough), and the kernel module now loads. Thanks!
