Default Re: nvidia GeForce 310M CUDA Optimus on FreeBSD 8.1?

Hi,

yes i knew about nvidia drivers for FreeBSD...that's the reason i choose my notebook, instead of a ati driven laptop.

...anyway...

i tried with amd64 fbsd 8.1....same results...the only difference is that Xorg -configure now recognizes the nvidia0 on vgapci0 as "nvidia" and not just "nv".

Similar problem in this forum: http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=3065
...the guy was luckier than me and eventually solved his problem

the weird fact is that asus provides 2 bios settings:

1.reserved vga0 on PCI:1:0:0 works with vesa
2.win7/vista: nvidia0 is recognized on PCI:1:0:0, vgapci1 on PCI:0:2:0 (internal intel graphic device). Both doesn't work, even with vesa driver...

...anyway...thanks for your time,

best regards,

maks

PS

What I'm trying to do is to use one of the graphic adapter with a decent performance....don't need for switching technology...
