Default nVidia MCP73 (nForce 630i & geForce 7100) driver compatibility

Hello,

I have a motherboard with integrated video geForce 7100 and I have xUbuntu installed.
The latest drivers don't seems to support the GPU from the chipset.
When I enter the following command under terminal :
Code:
lspci | grep VGA
the system tell me that I have an nVidia video device with ID
Code:
07E1 rev a2
and this ID is not into supported hardware list of latest drivers

I there a way to install nVidia drivers or may I have to wait this ID is integrated into drivers and use vesa instead ?

bonus question with the following command :
Code:
lspci -n
I got the list of devices detected by ubuntu but they are all "unknown device"

is this normal ?

Yes, this is normal.
Just install the restricted driver and see if it works.

I don't know if you have installed the correct driver, but the "unknown device" from lspci is normal. This listing is not produced by the driver but by a fixed table for lspci only.
Try to run nvidia-settings and see if that works. Then you have the nvidia driver and you can see the version.

actually, my display driver is vesa beacause nvidia linux drivers don't seems to support my video card (not present in Supported Products List)
nvidia-settings tell me nothing because of that

sorry but I'm noob in linux universe
I will try some stuffs as soon as I can

im using the same Chipset combo 7150/630i
and the latest nvidia driver works for me. ( 196.12)

Install the latest nvidia driver.
run nvidia-xconfig and see if it works.

Hi :lemmmy

I used the same chipset, but I don't find the nvidia provide the driver for centos(kernel 2.6)

Could you tell me where the driver can download ?

Tahnks

Best Regard

Hi JJ,

I had the same problem and I did the following to have it running.

1. Download version 1.25 of Linux nForce Drivers (http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_archive.html) from archive (I don't know why they have version 1.23 in Unix drivers page)
2. Unzip and install RPM for RHEL5_U1
3. Copy and replace forcedeth.ko from /lib/modules/2.6.18-53.el5/kernel/drivers/net to /lib/modules/2.6.18-92.1.18.el5/kernel/drivers/net/ (make a backup just in case)
4. Add the following lines to /etc/modprobe.conf (replace eth1 for whatever is yours)
alias eth1 forcedeth
options forcedeth msi=0 msix=0 dma_64bit=0
5. Remove module if loaded
rmmod forcedeth
6. Install module
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.18-92.1.18.el5/kernel/drivers/net/forcedeth.ko msi=0 msix=0 dma_64bit=0
(you may reboot as well but this is faster for testing)

you should get something like this by dmesg
eth1: forcedeth.c: subsystem: 01019:2145 bound to 0000:00:0f.0

7. Configure ifcfg-eth1 (or whatever)
TYPE=Ethernet
DEVICE=eth1
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
HWADDR=00:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

If you don't know your MAC then forget about that line and do ifconfig eth1 up

Good luck.
