Default nvidia x86-64 driver for 0x06e0 GEForce 9300 GE?

Hi!

I bought an HP m8530f quad-core this summer and am having problems getting the latest
nvidia driver to work on it. The machine says the card is an 0x06e0 which is not technically listed under supported cards on the nvidia website. HP says the card is a GE Force 9300 GS but the nvidia driver under /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/ says its a GE Force 9300 GE.

Does anyone know how to get FC9 x86-64 to work with this card? I tried specifying the BusID of the card but I still get "No screens found" and unknown chipset warnings in my Xorg.0.log file.

Thanks,

Bobby

Hi!

I forgot to mention that I specifically told the driver which card to use. I added the following to my xorg.conf file.

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:03:00.0"
EndSection

Still no luck. Does anyone from nvidia read these forums? I'd love confirmation, either way, if the latest nvidia driver even supports this card. If it does, great, if not, at least I'd know to not bother wasting any more time on this.

Thanks,

Bobby

Hi!

I believe I have solved this problem.

I switched cards and had the same problem. My computer apparently has an nvidia chipset on the MB in addition to the PCI card.

The problem lies in the PCI bus specification. The xorg.conf file wants to see "PCI:03:00:0" (all colons). Below, I specified the BusID spec with a period in it much like what you see from dmesg and from /proc/drivers/nvidia/cards/card# The xorg log output does not say that the BusID spec was incorrect, it just says that it was not able to find a card.

Changing to BusID "PCI:03:00:0" fixed the problem.
