nvidia driver in FreeBSD 4.8-Release
1 Attachment(s)
I am running two nvidia cards in my system
1) GeForce4 Ti 4200
2) GeForce2 MX/MX 400

The driver can only be loaded on one or the other of these, I want to run a duel monitor system in XFree86 using Xinearama and have both the cards run off the nvidia driver.My dmesg file is attached showing the two cards:

twin view not xinerama
You want to setup Twin view not xinerama, the readme file has extensive information on how to do this.

After looking at documentation and reading more posts its seems to me twinview is more for running two monitors off of one video card. This is not what I want to do. Instead what I would like to do is run one monitor off each of teh video cards. It seems that most people have no trouble doing this but at boot i get this error on my second video card

nvidia1: <GeForce2 MX/MX 400> irq 11 at device 10.0 on pci0
nvidia1: Unable to allocate NVIDIA register resource.

After reading up on the faq at NVIDIA they suggest that I make sure my bios have PNP-OS turned off, my bios does not have this option. I am running this MB
GA-7VAXP with a dual award bios

Window has no problem loading up both video cards, but FreeBSD wont even allocate the irq there for nvidia wont load the device. I do not want to run both monitors off the one card. Can anyone help me?
