unable to start x on non primary video card
 
i have 2 nvidia video cards, one agp and one pci, bith supported by the 7167 drivers.

if i set the agp card as the primary vga device in the bios and then try to start a simple X session on the pci card, which is the only x session, this fails wth this error message

NVIDIA: Could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0 (Input/Output Error)

likewise if i set the pci card as the primary vga device in the bios and then try to start a simple X session on theagp card, which is the only x session, this also fails wth this error message

NVIDIA: Could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0 (Input/Output Error)

i have no problem starting an x session on the primary vga device, but this is not what i want.

i have tried using the Option "UseInt10Module" "1" without sucess

any pointers on what i am doing wrong, or is this a bug in the driver ?

Likely there are some messages in your system logs about the drivers not being able to initialize your adapters. Please check those and also run the nvidia-bug-report.sh script. And perhaps lspci -v gives some usefull info too.

here is the bug report and the log file

note that i am only trying to start 1 xserver...the one on the pci card

the bug report includes the xserver log for the agp card...which works fine

but if i put the pci card as the primary vga device, the agp card wont start

correct, i have a seperate post that relates to starting two xservers at once, which has had no useful solutions...but i decided to start a seperate job as now all i want to do is start 1 xserver, and it wont start

quite simple stuff i would have thought.

any suggestions welcome.
