<p>You can use the /proc filesystem interface to obtain run-time
information about the driver and any installed NVIDIA graphics
cards.</p>

<dd>
<p>The NVIDIA graphics driver tries to detect potential problems
with the host system's kernel and warns about them using the
kernel's printk() mechanism, typically logged by the system to
<code class="filename">/var/log/messages</code>.</p>
<p>Important NVIDIA warning messages are also logged to dedicated
text files in this /proc directory.</p>

BIOS version is only available while X is running.</p>
