Default 1.0-8756 and Dell 2650

Finally got it to work on my Dell 2650 Geforce2 Go without crashing on leaving X (Switching teminal or exiting). I compiled my kernel with i2c support and used
options nvidia NVreg_SoftEDIDs=0 NVreg_Mobile=4

I still sometimes get graphical corruption switching away from X, but at least my machine doesn't lock up anymore. Now if only I could get suspend to disK kand coolbits working .....

Hi drhuntzzz,

it's a long time that I am trying to get my Inspiron 2650 working with an nvidia driver.
My OS is Debian Sarge, kernel 2.6.8-2-686. I tried the nvidia drivers 8174 and 8178; they do the job in the sense that X starts, but have the rebooting/shutting down issues that everybody knows...
Then I tried the 8756; I have followed your suggestions but unfortunately I have exactly the same problems....
It's great to known that you succeeded in fixing both the bugs! I'd like doing the same, so could you please add some info? For instance, what kernel version are you running? Any other special options in your config files? Thanks a lot!!

Hi all,
finally got it working thanks to the quite new driver 9631.
After downloading the driver, all I did is

export CC=gcc-3.4
sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9631-pkg1.run

(my kernel was compiled with gcc 3.4) and I have the nvidia driver functioning properly, now. Thanks to the guys that are working on the Linux stuff and improving the drivers!
