nvidia 7100, unknown chipset
 
Motherboard/Video Card Combo:
Biostar GF7100P-M7S (integrated Geforce 7100 chipset)

I've installed the restricted drivers, and ran nvidia-xconfig after the drivers alone didn't work. I looked in my /var/log/Xorg.0.log and found:
Code:

(--) PCI:*(0:16:0) nVidia Corporation unknown chipset (0x07e1) rev 162, Mem @ 0xed000000/24, 0xd0000000/28, 0xee000000/24
So, I looked up the chipset and found it is "almost" supported:
http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...ppendix-a.html

So I tried to force the chipset in my xorg.conf's device section:
Code:

Section "Device"
    Identifier    "NVidia GeForce 7100"
    Driver        "nvidia"
    #Chipset        "GeForce 7100 GS"
    Chipset      "0x016A"
EndSection

But, neither did anything.

Any Ideas?

Thank you!!!

Did you follow these instructions?

Appendix A. Supported NVIDIA GPU Products

For the most complete and accurate listing of supported GPUs, please see the Supported Products List, available from the NVIDIA Linux x86 Graphics Driver download page. Please go to http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html, follow the Archive link under the Linux x86 heading, follow the link for the 100.14.11 driver, and then go to the Supported Products List.
The links lead to a driver that covers everything up to GeForce 8800.

Just tried this but it didn't work either :-(
Code:

Section "Device"
    Identifier    "NVidia GeForce 7100"
    Driver        "nvidia"
    #Chipset        "GeForce 7100 GS"
    ChipId        0x016A
EndSection

if I follow those links I get to http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_18897.html, but it doesn't list my video card. Any other ideas?

Thank you!

it does list a 7100 GS, but that doesn't have the same chipset ID.

NVidia just posted a driver for the GeForce 7xxx series on July 30, 2008. I just happened to get lucky to catch it. Can be found on the NVidia web site under Downloads. Choose the GeForce 7xxx series, Linux 32-bit drivers. Installed great on Fedora Core 9 box per their instructions.
