Problem with nVidia Quadro NVS 300 on Linux
I am trying to run nVidia Quadro NVS 300 on Linux, but I still have the same problem:

(II) Bus -1: bridge is at (0:31:0), (0,-1,-1), BCTRL: 0x0008 (VGA_EN is set)
(--) PCI:*(1:0:0) nVidia Corporation unknown chipset (0x10d8) rev 162, Mem @ 0xfa000000/24, 0xf0000000/26, 0xf4000000/25, I/O @ 0xe000/7, BIOS @ 0xfb000000/19

lspci output:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 10d8 (rev a2)

I tried NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.19-pkg1.run and NVIDIA-Linux-x86-280.11.run, but without effect.
Maximum resolution I can get with nVidia driver is 640x480px.

Can you help me?

Thank you in advance,

Hi Pavel,
I had a similar problem. The problem is that the driver does not read the edid informationcorrectly from the monitor via dvi-d. The xorg log-file says something like check sum inkorrekt. My workaround is to connect the monitor by a display-port cable or by a dvi-i to vga adapter and a vga cable. With the vga cable I could start a uniti session in 1920x1200. In thid session I use the vvidia configurator to store the edid information into a file(get-edid does not work for me). Than I change the xorg.conf to load thid file ( option LoadCustomEdid <path to file> or so.) . With this Hack I can connect my monitor via dvi-d and have the native :.

Sorry for the incomplte Information but I am sitting in train and not all details are in my brain.

I hope it's helps.
