Last week I had to upgrade mobo and cpu. The onboard intel graphics were not as good as I was used to with the nvidia card on the previous setup so I purchsed and installed a geforce gt440 card which would not be rcognised in either slack or salix 13.37. I tried current as of 15/06 and no joy there.
I all three instances the audio on the card was recognisec but not the video
01:00.0 VGA Compatable controller: nVidia Corporation Device 0de0 (rev a1)
01:00.1 Audio Device: nVidia Corporation GF108 High Definition Audio Controller (rev a1)
In the interim I have installed porteus-1.2-rc2 (kernel 3.3.4) to a hdd and have also been able to install the prop. nvidia driver.
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GF108 [GeForce GT 440] (rev a1)
01:00.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation GF108 High Definition Audio Controller (rev a1)
Out of curiosity I tried mageia 2 live cd (kernel 3.3.6) and both video and audio chips were properly id'd.
Today I installed current 25/06 and I still had the same results with nvidia audio recognised but not the video. However with this current install the nouveau module is loaded and I have video at a reasonable quality.
I'm not sure where the problem lies. I tried using kcconf to compare the porteus and slack config files but I'm not really sure what I'm looking at and for. I'd be pleased to hear any suggestions as to what direction I should take to sort this out.
