I am running fedora 17 on a Macbook Pro 6,2 with an integrated intel
and a nvidia graphic card,
lspci -v | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor
Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 18) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT216 [GeForce
GT 330M] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Unfortunately, there are two issues which the open source driver nouveau:
1. The laptop does not resume from suspend to ram after having been
connected to an external monitor, this is bug
2. I intend to work with Nvidias CUDA framework and therefore have to
use their driver
I tried to use both the nvidia-graphics.x86_64e kmod-nvidia* package
from rpmfusion repo and the nvidia-graphics package from the atrpms repo.
Using standard boot options, the boot process seems to hang just
before gdm is started. Adding the kernel option nomodeset,
the monitor gets dark after the boot process and after having
connected a 2nd monitor I realized that actually the laptop monitor
light was completely switched off. Is there any possibility to switch
it on during the boot process?
Any ideas or experience how to get the Nvidia driver running?
Of course, any pointers or hints are very much appreciated!
