Default Re: Cannot load nVidia driver on U30JC (Optimus)

Any progress on this? I'm having the same problem with a Medion Akoya P6622 (MD98250). Intel 4500+Nvidia 310M. I can't even get the intel driver working. It panics the kernel. As of now I can only use vesa

Are you guys using a kernel with graphics switching support enabled?

No news here, but at least I can use the intel driver meanwhile. I guess am luckier than you for this because ur intel igd might be poulsbo-supported ?

no kernel mode switching enabled for me, as seen in the logs posted 2 weeks ago.


Would be nice if someone from nvidia could have a look.

It's an arrandale gpu:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Arrandale Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 12)

Does anyone know how to debug the kernel. I've googled a lot but haven't found anything usefull. Unfortunately the notebook doesn't have a firewire or serial port.

Thumbs up Re: Cannot load nVidia driver on U30JC (Optimus)

Asus have been kind enough to release new bioses for most of their laptops.
With changes to the sata and ide ,some other options are also available.

The date is 2010/06/21 update for yours and others are a few days apart.

Cheers

Seems like a reasonably new lappy the UJ30 series ,maybe you could join the
thousands of others here with all different asus laptops ,with the same issues .
Your lappy info would also help ,please follow the link on the launchpad.

I think this has been mentioned before in other threads .

All the best

Thanks for the idea.
I upgraded to latest version 210 bios but no change (even after changing to IDE) :-(

Didn't see any new option in bios when changing to IDE? Can you precise what you mean?




...and again, could anyone from nVidia comment on the error ??

Hmm so what else should I post besides all requested logs (nvidia-bug-report, etc...) posted previously so that a good soul from NVidia give a look ?

Sorry for the slow response, guys. I asked around and apparently there are a number of reasons why using the Optimus GPU for CUDA will not work. I'm afraid we cannot support that configuration at this time.

What are the reasons? Is this some kind of ASUS + nVidia + Windows conspiracy?
