I have nvidia gtx560 in my living room MD and using 285 drivers and alsa 1.0.25 with working hdmi audio

lspci | grep VGA | grep rev gives me:


01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 1201 (rev a1)

lspci -nn | grep -vi "non-vga" | grep -i vga | sed 's/.*://;s/\].*//' gives me:

1201

Ty...

I now have a full list of PCI IDs from nvidia (could not find it easily like earlier versions). I should have a fix submitted within the week.
I never quit... I just ping out.

**Updated, dont worry about 0start_avwizard, and I fixed some typos... sorry.

If someone would like to test the new detection...
If the machine with the new card is in your core, please ssh into your core (or go to the desktop and open a terminal) and type:
sudo su
then enter your password, and create these file below (nvidia_install.sh) somewhere, and copy and paste the commands I give below from the same directory as the file you created.

If this is an MD, ssh into the core (or from core desktop terminal), type:
sudo su      (enter password)
ssh moonXX        <=---------- where XX is your MD number
Now create these file below (nvidia_install.sh) somewhere, and copy and paste the commands I give below from the same directory as the file you created.

nvidia-install.sh

Code: [Select]

Now paste the following:
Code: [Select]
chmod +x nvidia_install.sh
mv /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.bak
mv nvidia-install.sh /usr/pluto/bin
add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
apt-get update
/usr/pluto/bin/RebootWithAVWizard.sh

This will just make the new files executable, backup and move the relevant files around, add the swat ppa, and reboot. This reboot SHOULD install the correct driver and make LMCE happy, after that rebooting again, taking you into the AV Wizard.

Regardless of success or failure lease run and post:
lspci -nn | grep VGA
cat /proc/driver/nvidia/version


Thanks to testers... this will hopefully help everyone. I am particularly curious about the following cards which have improved vdpau bluray/h264 support under a new revision.
GeForce 510
GeForce GT 520
GeForce GT 520MX
GeForce 410M
NVS 4200M

If you would note that you have one of these cards it would be particularly helpful.
lspci -nn | grep -vi "non-vga" | grep -i vga | sed 's/.*://;s/\].*//'
will produce one of the following to confirm it has the new rev.
1040, 1042, 1051, 1055, or 1056



Should you wish to undo these changes simply ssh to the machine in question and enter the following as root:
Code: [Select]
rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-x-swat-x-updates-lucid.list
mv /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.bak /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh
apt-get update

Do not hesitate to ask questions if you have problems. Thanks again.

Hold off on this. nVidia current seems to be set at 195... I think I will have to build a package, and stick it somewhere for testing purposes.

Ok... if you would like to test... you will have to add the swat ppa, which I was trying to avoid. I have updated the steps above... just follow the instructions. Please read them carefully, as they have changed.

I am also just dealing with 1004. I have no idea what this will do to 810. The best 810 should hope for is the 195 driver. I believe the later drivers desire other versions of things which will not be avail.

Please also let me know if you get stuck in an infinite reboot sequence.
