2 Video Cards, 2 Monitors
Didn't do to good on the FreeBSD Mailing list with this issue, will see how I go here.
This system has 2 x 8600GT video cards (non sli), from the testing I've done, it appears that FreeBSD will only correctly identify the first video card, the second video card is set as a default VGA.
This info is from pciconf -lv:
Nvidia 8600GT on PCI 1:0:0, Unknown VGA on PCI 2:0:0
When X is run, I get no device instance for PCI 2:0:0, and the corresponding Screen section is discarded.
Xorg log shows the cards being identified as follows:
(--) PCI:*(1:0:0) nVidia Corporation GeForce 8600 GT rev 161, Mem @ 0xd6000000/24, 0xb0000000/28, 0xd4000000/25, I/O @ 0x8000/7, BIOS @ 0xd7000000/17
(--) PCI: (2:0:0) nVidia Corporation unknown chipset (0x0401) rev 161, Mem @ 0xd2000000/24, 0xc0000000/28, 0xd0000000/25, I/O @ 0x9000/7
Only thing in common with the 2 cards is that they both use IRQ 19, would this be the problem ?
Any idea's ?
Is this possible under FreeBSD ? ....... OpenSUSE Live DVD picks up both cards and offers a dual head configuration.
XP just works ....... no problems anywhere
xorg.conf is fine, been running dual heads for years, both cards work fine when used as a single card.
My experience with FreeBSD is fairly good too, been using it since 4.3, home server is a FreeBSD 7.0 system
Any help appreciated.
