Tempting to look at it, isn't it? ;-)

Is ID really nvidia btw? can you upload a syslog here? I see manufacturor ID 0x1025 in nouveau I think..

Let's put it this way: I am currently having a look how hard it would be to add a generation or two to the existing driver (after all). Looking at a GF8400 (wat a beast!) and a 9200M (I think) to see if I get a response I can work with. At this moment it seems register access is down, though mapped correctly (on both), for instance. I did get DDC/EDID going though on the laptop on the external VGA connector. If your card happens to be on the same page and I get it going this way, you're in luck. Don't hold your breath though..

Please upload the syslog from a vesa boot to start with for now. Thanks!

hrev55862 x86_gcc2h (clean install)

First boot black screen

Second boot, enable fail safe graphics in boot menu, uncomment kernel config "fail_safe_video_mode true"

Third boot, vesa resolution 1024x768

Selecting native resolution (1366x768) or any other listed resolution in screen preferences - black screen

After manually creating "vesa" text file in /boot/home/config/settings/kernel/drivers with mode 1360 768 32, the system will boot into native resolution. However, as before, selecting any other resolution results in black screen.

Something seems to be wrong in how Haiku detects the display and sets the vesa resolution. Previous syslog and syslog attached.

Hmm, strange. So the nivida driver is not in play since it doesn't support it yet, but I see both a message from vesa_accelerant and one called framebuffer. I seem to remember these two were seperated from each other not so long ago (again). Also there were experiments with overwriting the cardBIOS with custom modelines for VESA I think, but I don't know (don't think so) if it's in main git already.

So I guess it's interesting to look at /dev/graphics to see what's loaded.

Oh, make sure you are running a completely upto date system, since EDID info structure was changed in size and content not so long ago: VESA accelerant will probably use the info detected at boot for it's use: but will fail if the load stuff and main system are not 'in sync'.

I hope I make sense...
