I got a Dell Latitude E6420
laptop from work and I want to run Slackware on it. Most of it is already OK, except video acceleration.
I followed this nvidia_optimus
how-to. But haven't installed the nVidia driver yet.
The driver search at nVidia pointed me to this page:
I downloaded it and tried to run it with X on (which I knew would tell me it would not work) and the installer said there was no compatible hardware. But this shows me what video hardware I got:
# lspci -nn | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0126] (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : nVidia Corporation GF119 [Quadro NVS 4200M] [10de:1056] (rev ff)
I get VGA output to a bigger LCD screen, but no HDMI. How can I solve this?
Thanks in advance,
