nvidia-detect - a utility to detect NVIDIA graphics cards

nvidia-detect is a utility to detect NVIDIA graphics cards. The utility will probe the PCI bus for NVIDIA devices and search for matching devices against a list of supported device_ids. nvidia-detect will make a recommendation for the correct driver to use based on any matches found. For example:

$ nvidia-detect
Probing for supported NVIDIA devices...
Found: 10de:0ca3 NVIDIA Corporation GT215 GeForce GT 240
This device requires the current NVIDIA driver (kmod-nvidia).

$ nvidia-detect
Probing for supported NVIDIA devices...
Found: 10de:0392 NVIDIA Corporation G73 GeForce 7600 GS
This device requires the NVIDIA legacy 304.xx driver (kmod-nvidia-304xx).

nvidia-detect may be run from within a script and will return the following codes:

0: No supported devices found
1: Device supported by the current NVIDIA kmod-nvidia driver
2: Device supported by the NVIDIA legacy kmod-nvidia-96xx driver
3: Device supported by the NVIDIA legacy kmod-nvidia-173xx driver
4: Device supported by the NVIDIA legacy kmod-nvidia-304xx driver
