Default Adding some Device IDs to the stable series (current 177.82)?

I bought a 9800GT, supposing it was supported as listed in the readmes of the driver 177.82. But after thinking it was a different error, I just found that mine (and according to google those of several other vendors) got a different Device-ID, that prevents xorg from starting.
That's the gpu-z-data of my card:
http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/2sg9c/
DeviceID: 0x0605

The deviceID was actually added (to the readme at least) somehere between 180.08 and 180.16, but with the 180 beta-driver I get a different "error", described in an existing thread (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=123313).

Obviously I would be satisfied with a fix for either one of the issues, but I guess adding some Device IDs for hopefully almost identical chip-revisions could be somewhat easier than tracing an error of few users, that leaves no (apparent to me) marks in the logs.

Attached is the nvidia-bugreport-log of 177.82

Lightbulb Re: Adding some Device IDs to the stable series (current 177.82)?

I had to put the bus id in my xorg.config on both the beta and the stable one.
that fixed my no device found and no screens found when i start satrtx if you know your video card bus id. it work for me everything run great. my bus id for my evga 2 8800 gs in sli.

i put my bus id in my xorg.config file where the video card drivers was.

BusID "PCI:5:0:0"
BusID "PCI:4:0:0"

and that fixed my problems if you need some help send me a pm i an kinda new to linux but still
will offer help if neded. good luck

Bty Nvidia needs to put in a program that will detect the bus id for all Nvidia cards..

That's a thing one most likely needs if he has multiple cards, otherwise xorg is quite capable to get the busid. I got a single card, and fyi the interesting line in Xorg.0.log is
Quote:
(--) PCI:*(5:0:0) nVidia Corporation unknown chipset (0x0605) rev 162, Mem @ 0xfc000000/24, 0xb0000000/28, 0xce000000/0, I/O @ 0x6c00/7
As you can see he knew the busid. (lspci|grep -i nvidia + brain if it would not).
Just that you can't say "try it anyhow" I tried it anyhow . Just as expected.

But it's nice to see a newbie without configuration-file-phobia
