Default What determines the parent device?

I keep getting an error now that says:

(EE) NVIDIA(0): The NVIDIA graphics device PCI:1:0:0 bound to this SLI X
(EE) NVIDIA(0): screen is not the SLI parent device. This configuration
(EE) NVIDIA(0): is not currently supported. Please add 'BusID
(EE) NVIDIA(0): "PCI:2:0:0"' to the SLI "Device" section in the X
(EE) NVIDIA(0): configuration file.

This is causing the system to just lock up when I'm sitting at my desktop. Or at least the system will suddenly lock, and after a reboot I get this message until I power off and back on.

Lonnie,

Attached. But all I wanted was an answer out of curiosity. I've pretty much given up on this system as far as real usability goes. Now it's just a something to poke with a stick when I get bored. Does piss me off that the system runs fine under windows though. So I run that now for the most part.

I don't see that error in the bug repot that you attached. It seems like that error is a result of the lockup, and not the other way around.

Is there something specific that triggers the lockup?
Have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS for the motherboard?
If you boot with the irq=poll kernel parameter, does that have any impact?

We've been through all this before, but I appreciate your willingness to try again. So... you won't see the error. I can't get into X until I power off and back on, at which point the error stops. I attached an xorg log with the error present though.

Nothing specific locks the machine. Just sitting at the desktop, doing desktop type stuff.
Latest bios
irqpoll locks my machine with a cdrom is confused error. Reporting that to the kernel developers resulted in a rather nasty email stating that this is expected due to irqpoll polling all handlers each time.

I'd still like to know what determines the parent device. I haven't gotten that answer yet. Is this done by the driver? The video BIOS? The system board? Knowing might help me determine what to replace, if I choose to go that route, despite this being a perfectly good windows gaming machine.

The SBIOS determines the parent device based on the PCI bus ID assignments.

Which again points to the system board, and which you don't have to try to replicate this issue (the Abit AN8 SLI).
