Default Two nvidia cards, only one is working - 100.14.11 for Linux x86

I have two nvidia cards: onboard 6150 and PCIE 7300GT, two LCDs, one connected to DVI in 7300, second to DSUB in 6150. In bios (recently updated - mainboard ASUS m2npv-vm) i enabled both gpus and set PCIE as primary dispay device.
When I boot system only one monitor is working (DVI connected to 7300) - that's not a problem, but when it comes to starting X (with kdm) still only DVI monitor is active despite I configured xorg to use two LCDs (and also two mice and keyboards with evdev - if this information will be helpful).

Default Re: Two nvidia cards, only one is working - 100.14.11 for Linux x86

There is only one screen in use in the ServerLayout in xorg.conf.
You may like to try something like this:

Code:
        Screen       0           "Screen1"
        Screen       1           "Screen2" RightOf "Screen1"
Second, can you please double check wich driver version you are using?
The situation is that the driver installer log says that 100.14.11 is going
to replace 1.0-9631, but the xorg.log says "NVIDIA X Driver 1.0-7664"
and /var/log/messages says "NVRM: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA
Kernel Module 1.0-7664". So apparently you are not using the latest
driver ...

regards

Bernhard

Thx for reply JaXXon,

You mean this entry in my xorg.conf?
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "alltogether"
    Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
    Screen      1  "Screen1" RightOf "Screen0"
    InputDevice    "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice    "Mouse2" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice    "Keyboard1" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice    "Keyboard2" "CorePointer"
#    Option         "Xinerama" "on"
#    Option         "Clone" "on"
EndSection
Is this configuration for using only one screen? I took this from: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Multiseat_X (i use Debian Sid not Gentoo).
Entries about 1.0-7664 are old (from 2005), nvidia-bug-report included also logs from XFree (and e.g. /var/log/messages) not only from xorg, maybe you looked into wrong section?

After restart I noticed something strange: second monitor is also starting but image is very dark, colors strange, i can hardly see anything ...
If I change settings in Bios (primary display device to Onboard 6150) then only second monitor is starting, but nothing is displayed - image is black.

I generated new bug report, and attached xorg.conf, logfiles form Xorg for two screens (in order to avoid confusions).
