Default Re: nVidia Linux Driver support for mobile video cards (Geforce* Go)...

I guess we can put a cross on the Geforce 2 cards! This page enumerates the Supported Products List by the linux drivers: http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_18897.html

Yep... rather sad.
so were stuck with the kernel driver than i guess eh...
ive only tried that once.. whats the specs on that im not really after framerates for gaming.. i just need something with basic video that works in full colour..

also.. it looks like "geforce2 * " is gone as well as "geforce* go * " so the geforce4 440 go cards that work for some are only a fluke and are soon to die as well eventually?

all laptop support is going away? am i reading that right? or am i just looking into things too far too early?

I think so- I mean, I've been using NVIDIA drivers on my GeForce Go for a year now.

Hell, lately power management even works with 2.6 kernels now!

Uh, the page you listed doesn't seem to be all-inclusive....

Check the Driver readme at:

ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...174/README.txt

and look for:
(app-a) APPENDIX A: SUPPORTED NVIDIA GRAPHICS CHIPS



You will see that every card you guys listed (notebook chipsets etc) are listed.

I would trust the driver readme over some webpage they posted (that doesn't seem to be as modern/updated as the release notes/readme).

Fact of the matter is, Nvidia can claim all they want to support Older mobile cards but it's a crock. They don't. 4620 is the last driver that works with my Inspiron 4100 Geforce2GO. Hundreds of people if not thousands of people are in the same boat. Kernel oops,black screen, no backlight, clamp on the power button. I don't call that support in the slighest...

For those of you with the SAME problem, I suggest you try 4496/4620... It's still light years beyond the 'nv' driver... Minion.de was a god send until they decided to remove all their drivers... Dumb.... It's a good thing I have them archived or I really would be using the 'nv' driver.

If anyone is interested I'll post a link to 4620... It's better than nothing...

http://www.angelfire.com/linux/madpenguin1/nvidia.htm

There are multiple versions of it. One that runs on 2.4.xx kernels, and one that runs on kernels 2.6.8.1 or below. I made a patch for the 2.6 version to allow it to run on 2.6.9 or higher. They changed a function. Easy to fix.

Just thought I'd post for those of you who have given up on hardware acceleration and Nvidia in general...

I know... I was going to personally scold him here but I decided against it.... You should never take stuff like that down just because you think they are "hopelessly outdated".... I'm afraid those "hopelessly outdated" packages were they only Nvidia drivers in existence that work with my card.... Oh well... If I strike gold like that, I always back them up, but what about others who could really use them?

I'm going to milk this modified 4620 driver for all it's worth. Hopefully no radical changes are made to the kernel to the point where I don't know how to fix the driver. I got really nervous when it didn't work with 2.6.10....

Angelfire yanked that web page...

The page you are attempting to access has been removed because it violated Angelfire's Terms of Service.

"It is not acceptable to create a free site for the sole purpose of providing files for download to others. We provide a personal publishing product, not a free file server."

I have a milion other place I can upload those to if anyone is interested....

EDIT - It is mysteriously back up again.. I sent them an email proclaiming my ignorance and gave a little 'linux is great, just trying to help people' speech and it was back up the next day. Maybe my email found it's way to a linux supporter... Who knows. We'll see how long it stays up this time...

Funny, no? Well, did they work? Give me some feed back, will ya? I'm going thru the hassel of making them available. It would be nice to know if they solve problems for others...

I'm uploading them to my Yahoo Briefcase as we speak... I'll just replace the bogus link above with the new one when I'm ready...

Default Re: nVidia Linux Driver support for mobile video cards (Geforce* Go)...

Hello, this is my first post here but I've read through dozens of posts and couldn't find the answer to my issue. I'm running Xandros 3.01 OCD, 2.6.9 kernel on a Dell Inspiron 5160 w/ a GeForce Go5200 card. I downloaded the 7174 nVidia package, boot to command line, run the installer, but I get an error that says I have to configure my kernel sources. I'm relativly new to Linux, so I have no idea what they mean by that. I'll attach the log file so you can see the complete error.

If there is anything else I should be prepared for, and it sounds like there are many recurring issues, please let me know.

Thank you all in advance.
