For my card, it seems I need the legacy 340 driver (and
xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-legacy-304xx). It is what nvidia-detect says
and I have a warning message about this when installing nvidia-driver
I tried anyway to install server-xorg-video-nvidia and nvidia-driver
because my card is listed as compatible in the 375.82 notes  (Quadro
FX 880M is listed).
With 375.82 driver, I have a resolution problem (start in 640x480) but I
suppose I can fix it in xorg.conf. More important, I am still unable to
suspend or hibernate. The laptop never wakes up.
So 375.82 is the same for me than 340xx.
I stick for now with the nouveau driver despites the graphical glitches
(suspend is more important for me in this moment).
I am still *very* interesting by any solution either to be able to
suspend with nvidia-driver (340) or to fix the bug of nouveau driver. I
am pragmatical in this case and will use whatever works best.
