Unhappy 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 ?
