Default 177.78: Still fails with Dell M1730

The 177.* drivers don't seem to be geared to deal with the SLI configuration in the Dell. It seems to be some initialization problem as restoring the old 173.14 driver doesn't work until you cold boot the system.

A non-SLI xorg.conf file doesn't result in a working X screen. It seems like the driver just doesn't want to play nice with the hardware.

I hope NVidia solve this problem some time soon - or at least care that it hasn't worked with any of these releases.

I have the 177.70 drivers, it works, but not as smooth as I expect. FF3 is a little bit slow, even with modifying the xorg.conf and the "nvidia-settings -a InitialPixmapPlacement=2 -a GlyphCache=1" ...

I haven't had one 177 release work yet. What kernel version have you got? I'm also running the 8700M SLi configuration, rather than the 8800 configuration (as that was a lot more expensive at the time).
