Titan X graphic card

Post by thesmartestkid » 2016/05/31 10:26:29

Hello everybody,

We have a computer with both Centos 6.4 and Windows 8.1 (dual boot) and it was working fine with a Nvidia Quadro K2000 graphic card.

However, we now bought a new graphic card, Geforce GTX Titan X, and Windows 8.1 keeps working fine, but not Centos 6.4. It doesn't boot. I formatted the partition and installed Centos 6.4 again, but still to no avail.

Is there a way to get to the operative system with the Titan X, so that I can, perhaps try to install a driver for the new graphic card, if there is such?

I cannot upgrade Centos, because we need it for a software that hasn't been upgraded.

Thank you for your help.

Best,
Tiago

You really need to get off CentOS 6.4. It's old (early 2013) and contains numerous high severity security vulnerabilities. Since RHEL of the same major version guarantees a stable ABI there should be no problem with updating to 6.8 - that is the point of RHEL/CentOS and their extended 10 year lifespan.

It's likely that the card you now have is unsupported by the kernel "nouveau" driver since the card is newer than you 6.4 kernel. It is possible that the newer kernels in 6.8 contain newer versions of the nouveau driver and that may support the card (or not). You could also look at the ELRepo kmod-nvidia driver but that probably wants you to upgrade to a newer kernel too.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
