Re: Problems getting GeForce 8700GT to work under linux
Hmm, I never noticed that the CPU was 64-bit before. I'm running 32-bit Debian and haven't had a problem with memory exhaustion.
Those NVRM messages are your second card failing to initialise, but I have no idea how to fix that... perhaps a BIOS or IRQ conflict? Does it also happen with other driver versions?
The fact that the card on bus 3:0:0 is using 512MB of RAM is because the cards share the video RAM and since you don't have SLI working yet, the first card is grabbing all of it. When SLI is working the control panel should say that they have 256MB each.
