OpenSUSE Hardware :: NVIDIA GeForce GT 325M And NVIDIA Optimus Support?

Apr 3, 2011

I own an ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC that has an Intel HD IGP, nVIDIA GeForce GT 325M GPU, and nVIDIA Optimus technology. I am running OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME. I used to be a former Ubuntu user. I used Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat 64 bit. In Ubuntu, it was not recommended that I install the proprietary nVIDIA binary drivers because it would cause me to log into a TTY console upon reboot.

nVIDIA states that they have no plans to support Optimus technology in Linux at any time. Would it be recommended that I install the proprietary nVIDIA binary drivers in OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME? Will I get the same problem as in Ubuntu? How do I do this?

Hardware :: NVidia GeForce G 310M Support ?

Feb 13, 2011

I am thinking of buying a Lenovo IdeaPad Z360, it has a GeForce G 310M.

I can't find much info on Linux support but an Ubuntu thread seems to suggest it isn't good. Can someone confirm that this card works with the latest nVidia drivers on Linux (Arch in particular)? It'd be even better if you had the Ideapad Z360 and could report on any other hardware problems I might have?

NVidia seems to say they have support (listed without the G however), but I've heard conflicting reports and so would like to check.

EDIT: I also found these:



Does the Z360 have optimus and the Z560 not so? I can't detect that either of them have it but occasionaly, someone says that they do. Can anyone confirm this? I thought the only real difference was the screen size.

Ubuntu Installation :: NVidia GeForce 310M Support

Jan 28, 2010

I recently bought a sony vaio laptop, with nVidia GeForce 310M device.

I am new, and not very good with ubuntu. I downloaded a driver version 185, and installed, after installing which, I could not get any display at all. After trying to repair, in vain, I had to reinnstall the whole system.

I really need the correct drivers. I can see a version 190.42 of nvidia drivers, but that doesnt list my device model number, and so im not sure, whether this should work. Someone, also please tell me how do I repair, if I mess while trying this driver out?

Fedora Hardware :: Nvidia GeForce 310/GT218 Fan Control Support?

Dec 18, 2010

I am running a FC14 x64 on a desktop which has a nvidia GeForce310 aka GT218 card which is being supported by the in kernel nouveau driver.

The kernel/syslog reports:


When Fedora 14 boots, I can hear the nvidia GPU fan spin up to its max rate.

With Windows on this same machine, the same fan starts at the same rate but drops to a lower (and less noisy rate) so we know there is graphics card supports fan control.

Does anyone know if its possible to set the nvidia's fan speed via the nouveau (or other) driver/util?

I have looked at nvclock (0.8b4 being the most recent I could find) but running this reports that the card isn't supported, although it reportedly supports the NV5x backend.

Fedora Hardware :: Setup Nvidia On Geforce 5700LE - Monitor Doesn't Support Screen Resolution

May 13, 2010

First off, let me say: I'm a long time Linux hobbyist and recently installed Fedora 12. I've been looking (some say "lurking") around these forums for a bit after I loaded it up and let me say: Leigh, You're an amazing young man! Keep up the great work! I've a question: I've just put together a hobby computer: Pentuim 4, with 1 Gig of RAM and a Nvidia Geforce5700LE. When I install Fedora from a fresh install, everything works great: nice screen resolution, good graphics, etc. but no 3d or acceleration, so I'm very limited on my programs.

So I decided I need to upgrade my Nvidia driver. I followed Leigh's Nvidia setup guide after installing Fedora 12 (all four steps!) everything seemed to go fine, but when I reboot, I quickly see the Nvidia splash screen, but the screen then goes blank. Well, not really blank, I can see what appears to be a kind of cross-hatch pattern, plus I can see what should be my mouse cursor on screen (it also is a square shaped pattern). I suspect it may be at a screen resolution that my monitor doesn't support. Once there, the computer pretty much doesn't do anything else. Usually I can break into the x driver loading and go to the command prompt, but this latest time I can't even do that.

Fedora Hardware :: Nvidia Graphics GT 325M Installation Fail

Mar 3, 2011

I think I am experiencing the same problem as a lot of people with the Nvidia graphics driver. I have tried to use the guide here, mjm, RPM Fusion and the nvidia website. Each lists my card as being supported but each time the install fails and I have to Alt - Kitaral - f2 to get to the command line log in.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVIDIA GeForce 8200M Ubuntu Drivers/Support

Jul 16, 2010

I installed Nvidia xorg drivers (not knowing it didn't support my card) and messed up my video setup. When I rebooted it wanted me to restore to default, so I did. Now that I have, I can do stuff, but I am trying to run some games in W.I.N.E. and it just won't run. I can't activate desktop-effects either. And to be honest, I can't find any information on the NVIDIA GeForce 8200M, I can only find info and support for 8200 and the 8200M G. otherwise I'll just have to reinstall.... And I just installed 10.04 yesterday.

Debian Hardware :: Unsuccessful Install For Nvidia In Jessie (Optimus)

Apr 17, 2015

I have Debian Jessie and I've been trying to install the Nvidia privative drivers. I've tried several ways to do it and all of them end in the same way. The last one I tried was installing bumblebee-nvidia and bumblebee with apt-get. The output was [URL] ....

With these two messages:

[URL] ....
[URL] ....

Then I restarted and runned nvidia-xconfig

Code: Select allWARNING: Unable to locate/open X configuration file.

Package xorg-server was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xorg-server.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'xorg-server' found

Finally when I restarted I cannot enter to Gnome... When I run xstart from the terminal I get an error saying: "No screens found", the final part of the log is this one [URL] ....

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Installing Nvidia Drivers GeForce 210 In 11.4?

May 2, 2011

I am having a challenge to install drivers on this machine with the OS and graphics card stated in the subject. To date I have tried different ways and they are broken in the steps or in the results I get on my machine. The how-to written by ajohnw Installing an nvidia driver - easiest I have found to date. results in a file or directory not found when I try to execute



The article SDB:NVIDIA the hard way results in the following error (copied from the error log):


ERROR: The kernel header file '/usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h' does not exist.The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files in '/usr/src/linux' have not been configured.

Researching how to resolve that error and I can't find anything relevant to openSUSE 11, closest version being openSUSE 9.Lastly, I've tried this SDB:NVIDIA drivers and for some reason it does not generate the xorg.conf file. At least that's what I am concluding. I go through the steps, reboot the system and boot only to a command prompt. Navigating to /etc/X11/ there is no xorg.conf and I have to copy xorg.conf.install to xorg.conf to get back into the Desktop.

OpenSUSE Install :: Installing NVidia Driver For Geforce GTX 275 Fails

Aug 20, 2009

I have just installed openSUSE 11.1 64 bit on my system. Subsequently registered to get an auto-update repo and auto-updated until no more updates were offered. Then I first tried YaST to install NVidia drivers from the NVidia repo (added their repo), but sax2 wouldn't recognize them. So I downloaded their 190. (beta) drivers, installed the kernel source code and gcc 4.3. Then I switched to a console (Ctrl+Alt+F1), closed the x server, ran the driver install as described (gcc 4.3 is installed). Installer said that all is fine (I checked the log to be sure). So I ran sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia, but the driver still isn't recognized.

OpenSUSE Install :: 2 Monitors (xinerama) With NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200?

Nov 29, 2009

On openSUSE 11.1 I was able to configure KDE 4 for 2 monitors with sax2 (although the resolution was bad).On 11.2 neither SAX2 nor KRandR seem to work. The KDE User Guide says that a driver supporting version 1.2 is necessary. However the nvidia driver for eForce FX Go5200 seems to support only version 1.1.Is there a way to use both monitors with SUSE 11.2? I am quite desperate since for my work using only 1 monitor is definitely a handicap.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Setup Dual Screen Display On Computer With Nvidia Optimus?

Aug 17, 2011

having trouble setting up a dual monitor from my Dell xps laptop using an HDMI port. It dual boots onto Ubuntu 10.04. The computer has a Nvidia GeForce GT 555M with Optimus graphics card I need to make sure I have not installed the restricted drivers. So I think what is happening right now is that the graphics are shown off the integrated graphics card. This is my output from <lspci | grep VGA>


00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 0126 (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 0dcd (rev a1)

The forum recommends to use this program called Bumblebee but I have had some issues with that in the past. Is there somehow I can setup my dual display while staying on Ubuntu 10.04 and not installing Bumblebee? I have researched into setting up dual display walkthroughs before but they all concentrate on nvidia or ATI configurations.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: No HDMI Audio On NVidia GeForce / NForce IGPU On Mb ASUS P5N7A-VM 11.2 Or 11.3?

Aug 6, 2010

I have an ASUS P5N7A-VM motherboard and was using Optical out for sound without issues running OpenSuse 11.2. I then got rid of my receiver and wanted to just use HDMI sound. I couldn't get it to work so I upgraded to OpenSuse 11.3. I simply went to the Sound control panel applet and changed it to Internal Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI). I can not get any sound from it on OpenSuse 11.3 either. I have ran sound tests from the command line "speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav" which all run without errors, but nothing comes out of the speakers. I have ran the suggestion of one post "" and here are my results: I have also tried the following post which did not resolve the problem since it seems to be Ubuntu based. I have undid everything from the post as well to make sure I don't stray to far from normal.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Proprietary NVIDIA Display Mode With Geforce 6200 And Acer X193W

My monitor is an Acer x193w which will do 1440x900 but there is no option for that. The monitor is just listed as a generic CRT, and only 4x3 display modes are given. My card is a PNY Geforce 6200 AGP 512MB.

Fedora Hardware :: Lenovo B560 (Optimus, Nvidia 310M) / "Screen Not Found" Error?

Jan 28, 2011

I am running Fedora 14 on a Lenovo B560 laptop.This laptop has a hardware peculiarity, namely Nvidia's newest gag: Optimus.This laptop has two graphics cards: an Intel GMA HD (for 2D) and a Nvidia 310 M (for 3D). The Optimus technology automatically activates the graphics card required for the current task.

Now, Optimus on linux is so far officially unsupported by Nvidia.

At the moment, my Fedora runs on the Intel GMA. I personally don't care if Optimus doesn't run on linux if I can somehow manually (even solely) use the Nvidia 310M graphics card.

So far, all my manual attempts in xorg.conf to speak to this card fail with the X not starting and the well-known "Screen not found" error.

Does anyone have any experience with this or ideas how to activate the Nvidia card?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: NVidia Drivers Do Not Support Correct Display Resolution

May 31, 2010

I am new to opensuse and have installed 11.2 KDE. It is simply perfect for my system. However after the initial setup the display resolution was set perfectly fine for my 18.5" LED monitor, default resolution was 1366x768, and everything looked good from desktop to fonts but the OSS drivers didn't support compositing so I decided to switch to nvidia drivers. I installed the driver as shown in openSUSE repositories page, for my 6600GT card. Now after rebooting everything is stretched,even the fonts look really ugly and fuzzy.

I am unable to find any mode in Nvidia XServer settings that would correct the current ugly stretched display. I am unable to set 1366x768 manually as well, doing so my PC won't boot to KDM but rather sticks to console. Now it's for sure that my monitor and display card supports 1366x768 resolution but it's just that nvidia drivers/Nvidia XServer settings won't let me set that resolution. How can I set the resolution or even better if I can enable compositing using OSS drivers then that would be great an dm willing to switch back.

Red Hat :: 5.4 Not Compatible With NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600

Aug 14, 2010

I am trying for Redhat certification on RHEL 5.4. When i tried to install it on my Acer laptop with NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600, I was only able to install it in CUI mode and no GUI. From NVIDIA website I tried both the newest and oldest version they have for Linux, which is with .run extension. I tried installing it using sh <> and it is starting the wizard, but exiting abruptly, with a kernel error.

How to work around on this issue? Any generic driver that would work for this display adaptor? whether version 5.5 would work with this card?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Install A Kernel Patch To Support On-board NVidia Graphics?

Mar 22, 2011

I am impressed with 11.4 and am happy that for the first time ever I don't need to install a kernel patch to support my on-board nVidia graphics. However, the on-board sound no longer works now. I don't know how to set it up in phonon. My device number 0 in phonon is MCP72XE/MCP72P/MCP78U/MCP78S high definition audio, and I assume this is my nVidia on-board sound card. The driver information states snd-hda-intel.

How can I check what is wrong with it? It did work fine on 11.2 right up to the 11.4 installation. I do get system sounds (like the start-up and shut-down sounds), but nothing from any application, e.g., firefox playing a video. Based on the advice from another thread I tried: speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav This does not produce any sound, but gives the following information: speaker-test
