FX5200 and 8500GT
 
Hi All,
Can anyone please explain how I can have a PCI FX5200 and a PCIE 8500GT card on FC10
note : I have 4 monitors two on each card.

I can get only one card at a time working because they use different drivers
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-173.14.18-pkg2 (FX5200)
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.29-pkg2 (8500GT)

I have modified my X11.conf first with one and then with the other and FC10 picks up each one at a time but I cannot get both.
ie Monitor Left-Left and Centre-Left works on 8500GT
and Monitor Centre-Right and Right-Right works on FX5200

any ideas will be great, I do not need full speed on the FX5200, this is not a gaming pc.

Post your xorg.conf.

My problem is not my xorg.conf, it is the two different drivers I need to install. If I install the 8500 the left screens work and if I install the 5200 the right screens work. I cannot install both because each installation removes the other.:confused:

I need a nvidia driver that can handle both or another driver that can handle the FX5200

Still no luck. I've now upgraded to FC12 and I'm messing around with nv, nvidia and nouveau driver mixes to see if it will work
