Nvidia driver not working on my Slackware64 current


Hello, my laptop is ASUS U41JF with Intel Core i3-380M and nVIDIA GeForce GT 425M, everything on my Slackware64-current is fine except the video driver.

I have tried both ways:
1. Packages from Slackbuild(260.19.29)
2. Driver from nvidia offical website(260.19.36)

Both methods fails because the screen turns black when I set nvidia driver in xorg.conf ans start X. The laptop even stops responding with the second method.

The followings are my xorg.conf and log of Xorg

The proprietary Nvidia-driver is named "nvidia". You currently use the Xorg-driver "nv".
Appart from that your xorg.conf assigns an Intel-videodriver to Card0 and Screen0.
Delete this "Section" and assign your nvidia-card to "Identifier: Card0".

And make sure you blacklist the nouveau module (look in /etc/modprobe.d/) as it doesn't play well with the nv and nvidia drivers.

your laptop uses the nvidia optimus technology (to switch between the integrated intel graphic chip and the nvidia one) that is unsupported under linux by nvidia, so you can use only the integrated intel chip.

it seems that Dave Airlie is working on it but it looks he needs time.

Because driver "nvidia" won't work, so I have to use driver "nv". And it works but the KDE desktop effects could not be activated.

Because my laptop has two GPUs, so I think the use of intel-videodriver is OK, isn't it?

Do you mean by swapping the identifier of two cards(assign nvidia-card to Card0 and intel-card to Card1) so that nvidia-card will have the priority to be used?

Um... It seems that nouveau really doesn't play well, because after blacklisting it the screen won't turn black and my laptop won't hang up, but another problem occurs: my kde hangs up, it only shows a wallpaper, and neither can I use mouse nor keyboards...

Do this technology really matter? What if I just want to use nvidia-card and no switching?

Yes it matters. And you can't use the nvidia driver on Optimus laptops at the moment. Period. Not sure about nouveau.

at today, I think you can use the nvidia card on a optimus laptop only if you have a Lenovo T410s, dave's stuff and only with nouveau.
for all the other laptops only the intel graphic card is an option (on some you can switch off -only- the nvidia card).
there are reports of someone being able to switch from the bios to discrete graphics (disabling intel and using nvidia only), but seems there are just a few bioses supporting it because nearly all optimus models have the display hardwired to the intel card.

have a look also at http://linux-hybrid-graphics.blogspot.com/

Interesting info, I did not know about this optimus stuff. Seems like a really bad idea ... why wouldn't you be able to turn off the intel card and leave the nvidia card. Then again, why 2 graphics cards in the first place ? Why not just downclock the nvidia card ? Just ridiculous, but I will take note of it.

There is now unofficial Optimus support for some laptops:
