Support for cards from add-in manufacturers
 
Hello,

are nvidia cards from add-in manufacturers supported by the linux drivers? In my case, it's a gt555m 2gb in an Asus N55SF. At the moment I'm having problems to get the card running on Ubuntu and Gentoo. The core of the problem might be that the nodes /dev/nv* are not created. (same prob on both distros). Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Stefan

You most likely need to use the Binary Drivers from nVidia. Use this link to get the latest for your system nVidia Driver Download Finder If this is a Optimus system you'll also want to look into bumblebee.

Probably, the problem is that even beta driver doesn't support this card: http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...rtedchips.html
Asus N55SF has 0x1247 PCI Device ID. Same trouble with Lenovo Y570 equipped with GT555M/0x0DEB.

Hmm, that's very painful. Does anyone know, if this card (0x1247) will be supported at some point? That way you could at least use it with bumblebee (or ironhide) theoretically.
