Ubuntu GTX 980?

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though NVidia has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

Ubuntu GTX 980?

Post by gidoBOSSftw5731 » Thu Mar 16, 2017 2:07 am

Im not sure if this is new but the GTX 980 on ubuntu wont be recognised, i have the nvidia367 (or something like that) to make it run and games recognise it, is there something special just for F@H for it?

Question 1: is the nV driver the only one or any open source driver still there (nouveau) -> Open source one need to be blacklisted

Question 2: which Ubuntu ? Personally I struggled with 14.x and moved to a different distribution; other though got it running.

Question 3: can you share the log with first 100 lines showing us your config and system details ?
