Description

It would be very nice if the nvidia driver supported the Geforce 8xxx series. I've been in touch with Rudolf, he said it would be quite some work as things changed a bit. Anyway, just creating the ticket so we don't forget about it. More and more people with have these cards and they should work in Haiku.

Posting my listdev here for when a GeForce 8xxx driver is created.

device Bridge (PCI bridge, Normal decode) [6|4|0]

vendor 10de: nVidia Corporation device 077a: MCP78S [GeForce 8200] PCI Bridge

device Display controller (VGA compatible controller, VGA controller) [3|0|0]

vendor 10de: nVidia Corporation device 0845: Unknown

If you have a different 8xxx nvidia chipset post your listdev output on this ticket rather than creating a new ticket.

Signing this. I'm using the same graphics controller as kwurzel:

device Display controller (VGA compatible controller, VGA controller) [3|0|0]
  vendor 10de: nVidia Corporation
  device 0427: G86 [GeForce 8400M GS]

Would be great to see some improvements here.

What do we base our current Nvidia drivers on? Nouveau (https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/CodeNames) lists pretty great support for the Tesla/NV50 architecture, which covers the GeForce 8, 9, 100, 200 and 300 series.

Our current drivers are 10 years old and handle only the older NVidia cards. We need a different driver for the new generations of cards.

Would that make a good GSoC project? Porting Nouveau to Haiku would significantly improve Nvidia driver support.
