Sonnet Breakaway Box 350 vs 550 in Linux

Hi,

I have an Intel NUC 7i7BNB with a Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box 350 and an MSI Geforce GTX 1050ti working under Fedora Linux. I had to rebuild the same system for a project, but since the Breakaway Box 350 is no longer available, we bought the newer 550 version.

Unfortunately it does not work.
lscpi does not list the card, only the internal one.

boltctl output:

Any suggestion to solve this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I see nobody has responded to you yet, but I was planning to buy an eGPU and I was considering the Sonnet 550 enclosure. I was wondering if you were able to resolve your problem. By the way use Manjaro/Arch Linux.

Thanks

Hi,

There were some promising progress. lspci listed the card in the box, but I ran out of time and we had to install the project for the client with the old 350 box.
I will get back to this if I have some time and post the results.
I'm still open for suggestions and ideas.

Thanks,

-Gabor
