(EE) end of block range
 
im having issues with a new machine. installed FreeBSD 6.1R [im more experienced w/ 4.11 stable] and have not worked with PCI-E/SLI cards w/ BSD. However I have with linux distros and didnt see many differences.

with an out of the box install of 6.1, including the installation of NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-9631 and nvidia-settings-1.0.

i ran an nvidia-xconfig which made the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

Code:

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig

when i startx as a user im getting the following errors:

a bunch of (II) overlaps
and of course:
Code:

(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

any insight or possibly a suggestion of something i just missed would be appreciated. ive never run into the end of block range errors before and google didnt yield many results.



thank you for your time.

Re: (EE) end of block range
 
oddities that i forgot to mention.

without making any changes i did get X to start once. though a second attempt failed. randomly it will either return with the error upon startx or lock up so that the machine needs reset.

also i have:

/boot/loader.conf
nvidia_load="YES"
linux_load="YES"

and in /etc/rc.conf
compat5x_enable="YES"

in dmesg im seeing the nvidia0 lines come up, but after boot there arent any nvidia* in /dev

Hardware:
supermicro pdsba E6000/4000 core 2 duo,
2.4Ghz Intel E6600 @1066Mhz Corse 2 Duo chip
4gig ddr2 800 dual channel memory
nvidia 7950GT

Code:

#dmesg > dmesg.txt ; grep "irq 16" dmesg.txt
pcib1: <ACPI PCI-PCI bridge> irq 16 at device 1.0 on pci0
nvidia: <GeForce 7950 GT> port 0x4000-0x407f mem 0xd1000000-0xd1ffffff,0xc0000000-0xcfffffff,0xd0000000-0xd0ffffff irq 16 at device 0.0 on pci1
pcib2: <ACPI PCI-PCI bridge> irq 16 at device 28.0 on pci0

added: im starting to believe the issue is mainly an IRQ or PCI IRQ routing error. I can not move the card as it is the only PCI-E16x slot on the mobo. I have not been able to find a way to change the IRQ for the card either.
