NVS 280 - 2 cards on RHEL - Help pls.
 
1 Attachment(s)
I have a Dell Precision 490 running RHEL4 (update 4) and the Nvidia module version is 1.0-8756. The Kernel version is 2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp.

There are two cards installed in the system and each card is connected to two monitors. I use the Molex Connectors.

The problem I have is that I can get only two monitors connected to any one card work at one time. I am unable to get all the 4 monitors working together.

I have attached the xorg.conf file. I am not sure what is wrong with my xorg.conf.

The lspci shows the following:

$> lspci -v | grep -i nvi
05:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34GL [Quadro NVS 280 PCI] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA])
Subsystem: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 019f
05:06.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34GL [Quadro NVS 280 PCI] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA])
Subsystem: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 019f


If I change the screen line, then I can send the output to the two monitors connected to one card , so I think the cards themselves are recognised. Making all 4 work together at the same time is what I have troubles with.

Any help is well appreciated.

1.0-8756 is no longer supported. If this problem persists with 1.0-9755, please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log.

thanks,
Lonni

I understand that version is slightly old, but we have it running in our company elsewhere with different kernel versions. I would like to stick to the version for standardisation purposes and wonder, even if it is slightly old, is it the reason for the problem I am having?
