    Phoronix: NVIDIA Maxwell GPU Support On Nouveau Still Requires More Work

    While the Maxwell-based GTX 900 series graphics cards are rumored to be launching in the weeks ahead, the GTX 750 Maxwell graphics cards on the open-source "Nouveau" Linux driver still need some more work before they'll play nicely when not using NVIDIA's proprietary Linux driver...

    NVIDIA 340.32 is needed to be able to extract the firmwares with the tool in NVC0 Firmware.

    That should be enough to get an accelerated 2D (glamor-based) and 3D desktop as long as you have the latest nouveau ddx and mesa 10.3.

      Ahhhh okay, good to know, didn't see it mentioned anywhere about 340.32 and was using 331 since that was the latest packaged in the 14.10 archive when quickly installing it. Will try 340.32 and see again.

        To be fair, it is written "Note: These instructions were tested with 340.32. Other versions should work fine too, but if the firmware upload mechanism is too different, it will fail.". But a special mention about Maxwell should have been made since we do require 340.32 to get the firmware on it.

          Okay, yeah, I had assumed it was just a general notice and wasn't related since when running the demmiotrace and perl script the FUC files weren't empty, but will update the article to note this. Thanks.

            MuPuf would it be of any help if I emailed you the fuc files from 340.32?

              Sorry for the delay, I was away.

              I think the best thing to do would be to file a bugreport. It does not take too long and ben will likely have a look at it: http://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/Bugs/
