Default two nvidia cards problem


I have 2 nvidia cards installed on my machine. One is PCI nvidia MX440 and the other one is AGP FX5600 dual head. I enabled twinview for FX5600 and it works fine. However the log returns the following message:

(WW) NVIDIA: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:10:0) found

and my pci card cannot be actived.

The driver is 5336. XFree86 Version and OS is debian sid. I have attached XF86Config-4.txt XFree86.0.log.txt lspci.txt in attachements.
Thanks so much for the answers

Default Re: two nvidia cards problem

From what I can tell, you have the BusID wrong for the PCI card.
Line should read:
BusID "PCI:1:10:0"
I never thought about the whole tri-view thing. Interesting! You could get rid of the section for your dell monitor, since I am assuming that is your second monitor under twinview. FBDev entries aren't being used by the driver.

Here's my TwinView setup:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Gateway VX700A"
HorizSync 60.0 - 75.0
VertRefresh 75.0 - 75.0

Section "Device"
Identifier "NV AGP"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "nvidia"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200(generic)"
Option "TwinView" "True"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-96"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60-120"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768@1024x1024,1280x1024;1280x1024,1280x1024; 1024x768,1024x768"
BusID "PCI:2:0:0"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "NV AGP"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "800x600"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1024x768"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1152x864" "1024x768"

First monitor is a 17", second is a 19". Running triview with a PCI card may require Xinerama, or having your PCI as a seperate x-server. I have a PCI card I can test with, but I don't have another monitor!.
Other than these stabs, I can't be of much more use.
Good luck!
