Default Re: Bug with UEFI - DELL E6410 - linux 3.1.10 - nv 290.10

The NVIDIA Linux graphics driver does not currently support native UEFI configurations. We plan on addressing this, of course (unfortunately, I do not have an ETA for this). But in the meantime, the driver stack requires a system booted in CSM mode with a mode 3 text console.

I've finally found a workaround to this bug!


iommu in bios ON + 64M
iommu in kernel ON
add this options to grub.cfg:
vmalloc=256M iommu=pt

I understand that we will "spend" 64MB of system memory?

best regards,

I've a similar kernel trace with UEFI configuration (ASRock A55M-HVS + GT520). However, the binary driver still loads up and I can start X window.

I've another problem though which happens to both BIOS or EFI boot. Whenever X is restarted (logout / login, stopping lightdm / restart lightdm) similar kernel trace will pop with some Xid messages and X could start (system still responsive, SSH still works). I've to restart the whole computer to resolve the issue. This problem bugs I believe a lot of GT520 users as I see quite some posts with similar issue.

Nvidia really need to step up and provide better quality driver rather than chasing for speed. We want a usable system. My build is HTPC so GT520 is really the best option (low TDP, available hardware decoding and good video quality).

Is this still the case? I want to use a nVidia 620M on Linux (ASUS UX32VD laptop).
