Default Need Help w/3 Screen 2 Card Linux Configuration

I have 2 LCD screens running on a Quadro FX 1300 card and 1 screen running on a Quadro NVS 280 PCI. I can get the FX1300 screens to work but so far have not been able to get the 1 screen running on the NVS280 card to work. I know my Device settings, including Bus ID properties, are set correctly but the 1 NVS280 screen doesn't do anything.

Below is my xorg.conf file. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Kent

Are you sure you can see both cards ? We have been having trouble with kernel versions and multiple cards dissapearing.

Do 'lspci' and make sure both show up.

I attached the nvidia-bug-report.log file as two file since the one file was too big for the attachment manager.

Thanks,
Kent

Default Re: Need Help w/3 Screen 2 Card Linux Configuration

The problme is that the BusID that you're specifying in your xorg.conf is incorrect:
BusID "PCI:6:d:0"

The correct BusID (from the X log):
(WW) NVIDIA: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:6:13:0) found

Thanks,
Lonni

Thanks for the suggestion but changing the BusID from "PCI:6:d:0" to "PCI:6:13:0" did not work. By the way, 13 decimal is hex "0d" and i believe the busid property is a hex value.

Thanks
Kent

Change the BusID and Screen entries in the NVS 280 Device Section to


BusID "PCI:6:13:0"
Screen 0


There may be other reasons why the config isn't working, but these changes will be required at least. lspci prints out in Hex, xorg.conf input is in decimal. "Screen 0" in the xorg.conf file is not a reference to other xorg.conf lines with Screen in them, but is the number of the DVI or VGA port on the video card (280s of course have two VGA ports coming out of one physical connector on the card)

bugspray,

That did it! I forgot about the screen property referring to video card port.

Thanks for everyone's input/suggestions. I couldn't have done without cha.
