    Default Quadro FX770m Suse 11.1 64bit

    Hi All,

    I am trying to install Suse 11.1 and use my Quadro card, i downloaded the latest installer from the Nvidia site, it checks FTP to see if a package is available and then tries to compile. After a few seconds it throws an error and says to look at the /var/log/nvidia-installer.log. The log contains the following

    /tmp/selfgz15081/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-173.14.12-pkg2/usr/src/nv/nv.c:1296: wa

    Can anyone help me with the next steps.

    Hi
    Can you check your pci id against the supported cards as one of the
    newer ones may work better;
    Code:
    echo -n "0x" && /sbin/lspci -nv |grep VGA|cut -f4 -d ":"|cut -f1 -d "("
    From the above output use the numbers from the output to look at the
    Supported Products List (link on the left) to verify your card is
    supported by the driver at the following link.

    Hi Malcolm,

    Yes its in the list

    Quadro FX 770M 0x065C

    Is there a way of forcing the driver to compile or ignore errors

    Or should i try an older driver?

    Hi
    Download the 180.22 driver and use that rather than the 173.14.12 one.
    Make sure you have the kernel-syms and linux-kernel-headers installed
    as well.
