We are experiencing some trouble during the integration of a Lenovo P71 including NVIDIA Quadro MX2200 on RHEL 7.7 Operating System and we want to know what kind of support can be afford to us.
We need, for our customers, to intergrated a custom RHEL 7.7 operating system on a Lenovo P71 machine (20HL reference with a Core i7-7820HQ processor). We manage to install the operating system on the computer, however the integration of the NVIDIA Quadro MX2200 card is not optimal, even not functionnal at all due to Optimus drivers.
RHEL seems to affirm that Lenovo P71 (20HK) with intel Xeon processor is supported with nvidia drivers.
We opened many ticket in attention of RHEL support team (https://access.redhat.com/support/cases/#/case/02419640 / https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1728383 ) to solve this problem. By the way, REDHAT team never manage to solve our problem and neither external Output works, nor performance are good (decrease by 10 comparing to attended performance). They also decided that a won’t fix issue should finally be the results of our tickets.
Nevertheless, I need to deliver an important customer, and I can obviously not deliver him this laptop with such bad performance regarding to the configuration of the machine.
I saw NVIDIA has many version of the drivers for the QUADRO M2200 series (including Linux 64 bits AMD64/EM64T , but this does not seems to work with our laptop configuration.
Can you tell me if NVIDIA is able to develop specific drivers for this kind of configuration ? how should this be done (quotation of the development to command / …)
