Default Re: 1.0-7667 for FreeBSD i386 released

Hi,

I've installed 1.0-7667 from the ports and I am pleased to say that now multi-card does work in some cases. The primary AGP card I'm using is MX4000 based, if the PCI cards are other than MX440 or MX4000 based (say FX5200) then the machine reboots as soon as X is started.

I can live with this by restricting the card choice, the biggest problem I have is that I want to use the TV ouput on ALL of the cards. The TV ouput from the second card is distorted - looks like the encoder is not being correctly set on the 2nd card. The VGA output on both cards is good, and the TV output on the first card is good as well. I've tried this under FreeBSD 5.4 and 6.0B2 with std. Xorg server and a snap version - same results for all cases. The only differenece being that under 6.0 I had to include hw.pci.allow_unsupported_io_range="1" in the start up config in order for the second card to be accessed.


Regards
