I want to run Debian stable on a 64-Bit (amd64) system and enable twinview on the graphics boaard nVidia Quadro 600.
The default installed driver works for one screen. After installing the nvidia* packages and running nvidia-xconfig the x-server no longer comes up.
One solution might be downloading and building the actual driver from the nVidia-Homepage. But, does anyone know a better (debian included) solution? I can not find any package (stable or backported) that supports this graphics board.
Maybe the following is of interest: lspci|grep -i nvidia results in

0f:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 0df8 (rev a1)

Okay found some details: Looking at debian squeeze-backports package info showed that kernel 275.36 is in the backports-package, which supports Quadro 600 by nVidia.
Further there is a database, which explains, that the nVidia Corporation Device 0df8 (rev a1) is the Quadro 600?

How can I mark this question as solved? (By myself)? Sorry for asking - was hoping to get the needed help faster. – Bastian Ebeling Feb 2 '12 at 6:00
