Default Asus V9180 drivers?


I've been looking around but did not find a driver for the Asus V9180 board.

NVIDIA Geforce4 MX 440-8X
It isn't in the list of the NVIDIA "README" file .

Can anyone tell me if this card is going to be supported?
Or is there one but do i just need to learn how to search?

From Release Notes:
"NVIDIA has a Unified Driver Architecture (UDA) model, which means that one driver set can be used with all supported NVIDIA hardware."

No, it most definitely is a unified driver model.

Well, that means that either your card is newer than the driver, or that your card manufacturer changed the PCI ID on the card. If the latter is the case, then talk to them, they're the only ones that can help you.

Which driver version did you try again?

Since the pci card still has the "10de" id
which is from nvidia my best guess is they didn't change the pci id.

> Well, that means that either your card is newer than the driver

Since i bought the card a week ago this doesn't strikes me like lightning at bright daylight. I guess I have to talk to nvidia, or asus.

The driver version i used came right from the nvidia site.
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.mdk82up.i586.rpm

Hmm... 2002-05, that's not that recent is it

Well, 2960 is only two revisions old...

Try 3123 or 4191. They're both available here:
