      To easy some RAM in this old computer that has a maximun of 4Gb of total RAM, two slots DDR3 2Gb max each, I found an old Gforce video card in a yard sale.
      That way if installed I will free the on board shared memory…but boot stalls populating /dev, maybe because drivers are not installed yet…
      but as just installing the card the MB defaults to the Nvidia card and then it is impossible to install the drivers, drivers that do not install if card is not present
      Is any workaround?

        Hello,

        That way if installed I will free the on board shared memory…

        This is a very good approach.

        You should let us know the specs. Please go to antiX control center, Hardware section and copy the full system information. And additionally please let us know what type of Nvidia card you have got. It can be a bit tricky to install the proprietary drivers for the old nvidia cards. But depending what version of antiX you run, and which kernel you have booted or installed, the recent free nouveau driver for nvidia cards works pretty fine even on old models. Then there is no need to install the proprietary stuff. Possibly you’ll have to blacklist the driver for the internal video device to force the system to select the proper driver for nvidia. Maybe somebody else here has experience with this procedure, I never had more than a single graphics card in a system, so I can’t tell you much about the details how to manage them.

        Windows is like a submarine. Open a window and serious problems will start.

          Hi Robin, nice to “see” you back here!

          @nestorgbi, two things you can try to overcome the waiting for device hurdle.1.Try another kernel.If you are using 64bit system 2 kernels are installed by default on the live system.
          2.Try this bootparameter on the live system

                I tried bnoth kernels, the 5.1 and the 4.9
                I will try xorg=nouveau nouveau.modeset=1
                and cross my fingers

                  Hi nestorgbl,
                  If not already done
                  first please remove and clean the card, in the pic it is very dirty, dust, dirt and dirty spiders webs can cause malfunction as
                  to some extent conductive.
                  You can dry brush then wash off the board with Isopropanol, use a natural hair brush, plastics can cause damage due static electricity
                  build up and discharge…let the board thoroughly dry. I leave overnight in a warm place
                  I am unsure if only dirt at power regulator bottom right. If the PCB is actually discolored in that area the card is most likely
                  defective. If you have the passive cooled version pls ensure sufficient airflow. runs hot.

                  Those cards should just work with exception of 4.10 series kernel where boot fail is common.
                  Maybe try booting latest antiX live with modern kernel, that way you can better test for lingering old configuration issues.
                  I stopped using Proprietary driver, not worth the pain unless maximum gaming performance is wanted.

                  Memory: you would get better performance if both slots are fitted with memory. But please use two modules from same manufacturer
                  and spec, slight differences can cause crazy instability issues.
                  You show.

                    Kernel: 5.10.142-antix.2-amd64-smp

                    As Xunzi already said: Try install a kernel from 5.15 upwards. You can even give the 6.x series a try.
                    Why? The nouveau driver has been improved after this. From my experience with my old Nvidia graphics card there was no way to run it on the kernels before without installing the proprietary drivers – which was not possible since nvidia didn’t hand their closed source blob over to allow Xorg to be updated. Starting with the 5.15 kernels you can run the nvidia devices simply with nouveau, no need anymore to install the proprietary drivers.

                    So I’d strongly recommend you to install the most recent antiX kernel first. Try recent 5.x and also 6.1.x both. You might also give the default debian kernel a try. For me the 5.19 did work really fine on antiX 22 with an old nvidia card. ( See https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic/testing-5-10-kernel/page/6/#post-91617 )


                    Update: Accidentally I’m just about installing antiX 23 on the very notebook with the old nvidia gforce graphics card. If you can’t get it working on antiX 22 you should consider to switch to antiX 23. This booted here the nvidia with the kernel present in the ISO straight to the desktop, using nouveau. So obviously the noveau-fixes introduced in the 5.15 kernel have been backported to the recent 5.10 kernels, the antiX 23 ISO came with 5.10.188, and I’ll update to 5.10.197 as recommended in the quick infos now, not expecting any quirks. This was not that easy with antiX 22 on the old nvidia gpu as I observe it now on antiX 23.

                    Windows is like a submarine. Open a window and serious problems will start.

                      Dear nestorgbl,

                      Note that you may also need to go into the bios to disable the processor’s graphics chipset and enable the Nvidia graphics card.

                      It’s not always plug and play. Sometimes the bios uses both! If you want to relieve the processor, you often have to manually disable the processor’s graphics chipset.

                      On my desktop, I have the I5-6400 processor which has a graphics chipset. This one is not activated. You can only see the Nvidia graphics card. In short, you can’t put a screen on the motherboard’s outputs (vga, hdmi, display port, dvi). Only the Nvidia graphics card can be connected to 5 screens.

                        As it is it works fine on a Mint 13 Maya 64b DVD. I grew up in Havana where air is saturated of salt from the nearby Atlantic Ocean. Water (better deionized) works better! Believe me as I earned my way of living fixing computers.
                        Thanks anyway for your suggested steps.

                          Maybe my phone’s camera (and the photographer) are bad!

                            Is there a reason why you didn’t take the newest version of antiX?

                                I know! More memory is the way to go! But still nowaday 4Gb is the bare minimun…
                                That old days when I installed W2K with 48Mb RAM and after I took my memory out and left 32Mb and it worked, or before when I worked some place designing printer circuits with a pirated Orcad copy, and a 2Mb RAM and a 10Mb Hdd on an IBM with a 12Mhz processor and a CGA graphic… I was the envy of almos all my coworkers…
                                But that old days are gone, for good! I don’t regret! I love to be in the future….
