New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

NVIDIA OPTIMUS vga_detect

Post#1 by oranus » 06 Dec 2013, 10:37

Hi,

Thanks for Porteus Development team for all their works...

I have laptop which is use NVIDIA OPTIMUS vga. In generally I use vga_detect cheat code. But nvidia driver does not install so that make increase cpu temperature to the critical level. And some times system are crashed.
Thanks for Brokenman since he developed NVIDIA OPTIMUS xzm packet viewtopic.php?f=61&t=2489&p=17212&hilit ... mus#p17212

Thanks for fanthom to vga_detect cheatcode. So is it possible to merge all of them and vga_detect cheatcode works on NVIDIA OPTIMUS?
Thanks for everything....

What is the model of your machine and what kernel are you using? I believe the later kernels 3.10+ should fix this problem with runaway temperature. I am not experiencing this on 3.12+. The next version of Porteus should include the updated kernel. As for vga_detect i havn't tested it so i will give it a go and pass on the required info to Fanthom so he can implement it into the vga_detect code.

It is probably caused by a different name that is given to the nvidia device (e.g not vga controller).
How do i become super user?

Hi brokenman,
Thanks for reply.
This is DELL N BFQ6767 series.
Kernel is 3.9.
I hope fanthom will solve this problem with some changes on vga_detect cheatcode. Thus Porteus portability will increase and become the world most portable OS because of detecting all VGA.
Thanks....
