I have a GA-K8NXP-SLI mobo and a GV-3D1 (dual 6600 GT (i.e. two GPUs on a single card)) that I bought as a bundle deal. My box is dual-boot XP and Slack 10.1, and I have been using kernel 188.8.131.52 and the 7167 nvidia driver to play ut2k4 with no problems.
I have a question about SLI with this card. In Windows, the driver is fooled into thinking there is an SLI setup to get the dual GPU thing to work. If the correct nForce4 SLI chipset is recognised, the SLI tab becomes available in the driver settings. (http://www.hardwarezone.com/articles...3&id=1390&pg=4)
How do I get the same effect with the Linux driver and the nvidia-settings tool that comes with the driver? I don't see any special NVreg commands in the driver README.txt.
Can anybody point me in the right direction with this? I have looked at nvidia's knowledgebase without any luck.

unfortunately the current NVIDIA Linux drivers do not, yet support SLI configurations much less hackerish SLI configurations... there is no ETA on when we will see SLI support...just have to wait and watch over these forums for now.
