Today I managed to install Manjaro KDE Plasma in my old desktop but blocked with display issue. Can somebody help to know the driver for Nvidia GeForce 7025/630a graphics card driver to install as not able to find suitable version .
Post the properly formatted outputs of:
inxi - Fazy
At this point we don’t know anything about your hardware and software to provide anything useful, so the info from commands above would help.
That’s a really old card, and as @michaldybczak already said, an
inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host would be the minimum required information for us to double-check which exact card it is as there are a few variants around… (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)
Having said that, you’ll have to install:
- a really old proprietary driver from the nVidia web site
- the nouveau open-source driver as they’re still under active development and are better
for these old clunkers
Yeah, the GPU is so old that it’s hard to find any info about it and it’s not even supported by Windows10 or 8.1. I doubt that any Linux proprietary drivers are possible for it. Nvidia site says that there are two driver versions for this:
15.49 and 15.37 - both released in 2009. Those drivers are not accessible in Linux nowadays.
Probably only noveau can handle it somehow, so I would stick with free drivers, but with such old card, even noveau can be capricious.
