x4 760k

  7 years ago
  AMD (Custom-built PC)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

Samsung 840 ssd pro
msi mini-ITX motherboard with builtin wifi (intel : iwlwifi)
USB 3.1
HDA nvidia
DVD-RW samsung dvd-superwrite master

What doesn't work:

Nvidia gtx-750 gpu

What was done to make it work:

Nvidia maxwell gpu = This actually can cause quite a head ache. You will need to install in text-mode, then add the closed source driver from the nvidia website, and finally bring up gdm. Which includes doing a lot of stuff by hand, you'll also need to find a way to suppress nouveau loading at boot - I haven't, 'sudo modprobe -r nouveau' does the trick tho ;).

Additional notes:

One day over the rainbow, Some time soon Nvidia will start playing nice with linux, and buying one of their cards won't be such a problem. After all, don't we all have the right to enjoy CUDA capability?

PS I'm not looking forward to the next kernel update, as that's when I find out how successful the dkms install is. If dkms fails => black screen
