The below information is the output from various Linux commands to aide in the development of NVIDIA-related utilities to support the GeForce 7900GT. The development output includes using lspci, to list all PCI devices, in a very verbose mode (lspci -vv) and the popular NVClock utility. From the Linux NVClock, we used the -i and -D parameters to display the related information. As can be seen, the GeForce 7900 series are not presently supported by the NVClock CVS, and lacks the thermal readings, and various other measurements. The 7900GT information displayed was the architecture, and was displayed as the NV49 A2. The PCI ID for the device is 0x291. The core and memory clock speeds were both reporting inaccurate values of -2147483MHz. The memory interface was also improperly displayed as 128-bit, rather than 256-bit. Fedora Core 5 Test 3 was used with the 2.6.15 Linux kernel, NVClock was acquired from the SourceForge CVS server on March 06, 2006.
