Which Video Driver: NVIDIA GeForce2Go / Dell Inspiron 8000/8

I’ve seen that there are a couple of folks using Dell Inspiron 8000 or
8100 laptops with NVIDIA GeForce2Go video controllers. I can’t
find the posting that said which video driver worked best until
it’s directly supported: anyone?

Any other 8000/8100 configuration tips (network, etc.) for this
hardware are welcomed as well!

Thanks,

Hi Jeff,

Our driver for Nvidia chipsets does not support flat panels because
we do not have the required information from Nvidia. You will
have to try one of the generic drivers: devg-vesabios.so or
devg-svga.so

Regards,

Joe

I know that someone has been using an Inspiron 8000, so
perhaps they’ll pass on their experiences. VESA is very,
very slow.

What information is required? Perhaps a grass-roots request
of Nvidia can move the required information along?

Hi Jeff,

People have been using Inspiron 8000 with ATI Rage Mobility
graphics chipset.

Thanks for the info, I gave this to a developer and he passed it
onto our Strategic Alliances people to see what we can do, however
we can’t make any promises.
