Default Configuring X problem.

Hi,

I just installed Redhat 7.3 at work today but could not configure X.

My machine has two graphics cards in it, one is a GeForce 4 and the other is a bog standard 2D S3 ViRGE. The machine is booting using the PCI card as primary because WinXP gives a conflict if the primary is AGP.

Now, I can configure X to utilise the S3 card, but not the GeForce, I should be able to configure X if I set AGP to primary, but as I don't have access to the BIOS I can't keep switching around.

Currently, if I try to get the AGP card working (from secondary), the machine hangs completely.

Now, the question is this; is it possible to configure X in this way? If so, what do I need to put into the XF86Config-4 file?

Thanks,
Luke.

You will need to play with BUSIDs in the device section of your XF86Config file. Get the BUSID from your nvidia card from: lspci or cat /proc/pci.

for example if the output reported 1:0:0 use:
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

I did this, it crashed the machine.

Well, lspci reports in the form "x:y.z" I really think that the xonfig file should use this form also, just annoys/confuses me

Never had to play with those pci ids myself but I think it is as following then:

lspci outputs: x:y.z
BusID "PCI:x:y:z"
