Default 700Go FX Quadro Card

The latest Linux drivers do not support the new Quadro FX Go700 chip on my Dell M60 laptop. Any idea when a new driver set might be released so I can work in Linux ?

Ahhh...thanks for posting this, I was going CRAZY trying to get the new drivers to work on my Dell Precision M60. The screen goes blank, and then turns light grey, which slowly gets brighter and brighter until it's almost blinding. Then it goes black again.

I'm worried now because the older drivers don't list the Quadro FX 700 Go as being compatible either.

When can we hope to see linux drivers for this card? thx.

Update: 4363 release works, perhaps because it downloads & compiles the kernel interface. Haven't experimented with manually compiling the new release yet, and I haven't used 4363 long enough yet to comment on stability, but it sure beats the vesa driver....

Default News on Linux driver for Quadro FX Go700 / Dell M60

If Jim Thom and/or Pulswidth have found a driver for the Quadro FX Go700, other than the 4363 release already mentioned, could you please post an update ?

Havent tried 4363 yet, tho I will today.

Any further info from Nvidia as to when a new release supporting the card might come out ?

Was great to find the prev postings as, like pulsewidth, I was somewhat
frustrated trying to get getting 4496 to work.

Thanks!

I've got the 4496 to work.
(note to Jim, sorry v3d does not work yet, will try to get that sorted as well).

1) install 4496
2) startx
3) notice how the screen is unusable
4) close the lid of the laptop for about 5 seconds. This causes the videocard to go in poweroff mode
5) open lid , video card powers on again
6) working X server
