Default NVS 280 and Intel 945 GM Chipset

Greetings!
I am trying to install NVS 280 PCI graphics card on a single board system with intel 945 GM Chipset. I am using Fedora 2.6.18 core for my testing. The main aim is for us to get three displays, two from the NVIDIA PCI GPU and the onboard display.

We installed the drivers from nvidia download site. The drivers tested are

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9639-pkg1.run
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.09-pkg1.run

When I set the BIOS to boot to onboard VGA it boots up fine to the on board monitor and the other two DVI from the PCI cards do not come up. On the other hand when I set the init display to PCI Slot in BIOS I get a kernel Panic. Unfortunately I am not able to get any useful information about the kernel panic as it scrolls up fast and all I see is the stack dump.

I also noticed that the on board port is using i810 driver for it to boot up properly.

I am attaching the NVIDIA-bug-report and some other information for reference. If you further need anything let me know.

As a side note, Even before using this card we started testing with PCI-ex NVS 285 card with the same drivers mentioned above and found that PCI-ex card disables the onboard by default, but the two displays from the card worked just fine. So now we switched to PCI version and having bigger problems.

Thanks a lot,
Regards

I'd suggest setting up a serial console to capture the kernel panic. Its quite possible that the motherboard that you're using isn't capable of booting off of a PCI graphics card due to a BIOS limitation.

Hi
I made changes to BIOS to boot to onboard display, then no kernel panic. I also get one of the displays on NVS 280, while screen 2 still does not respond.

Attaching my xorg.conf.
I would appreciate if any one can let me know what is that
I am doing wrong.

Thanks
Regards

Per the forum sticky posts, you need to provide an nvidia-bug-report.log if you'd like assistance.

The problem is here:
(EE) Screen 1 deleted because of no matching config section.

In the Device section(s), 'Screen' numbering is on a per-GPU basis. not globally. In other words, the nvidia devices should be 0 and 1, and the intel should be 0.

This is not an nvidia specific issue, this is an Xorg configuration issue.

Unhappy Re: NVS 280 and Intel 945 GM Chipset

Hi
Thanks for the suggestion, but I am still having the issue where only one of the displays on the PCI card comes up.

Attaching my bug report and xorg.conf files for reference.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot

According to the bug report, you only have one display device attached to the NVIDIA card:
(EE) NVIDIA(2): Unable to find available Display Devices for screen 2.

Question Re: NVS 280 and Intel 945 GM Chipset

HI
I did notice it in the report, but I tried switching the monitors and found no problems with the device. I also changed the DMS cable and still no luck. Is there something the PCI card looks in the BIOS.

Thanks
Regards

Do you have two display devices attached to the NVIDIA card?

The problem here is that only one of them is getting detected. If they are both CRT's, you can try adding the following to each of the NVIDIA Device sections in xorg.conf:
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT"
