Dual head with NVIDIA Quadro NVS280

Dual head with NVIDIA Quadro NVS280

Post by NOSPAM-unixrules2.. » Thu, 03 Feb 2005 05:06:58



First question is it possible to use two monitors with Xorg with the
NVIDIA Quadro NVS280 with S10 x86 on a Sun opteron?

Second question, has anyone used two monitors with one on this card and
the other on another card?  I added an ATI PCI card and X runs fine on
it, but when I tried to use both Xorg takes
up 100% of one cpu of the w2100z.  A truss shows it's stuck doing this:

lwp_sigmask(SIG_SETMASK, 0x00002000, 0x00000000) = 0xFFBFFEFF
[0x0000FFFF]
setcontext(0x08046A50)
Received signal #14, SIGALRM [caught]
lwp_sigmask(SIG_SETMASK, 0x00002000, 0x00000000) = 0xFFBFFEFF
[0x0000FFFF]
setcontext(0x08046A50)
Received signal #14, SIGALRM [caught]

I'm using the xorg.conf generated with Xorg -configure, which finds
both cards like so:

Section "Device"
Identifier  "Card0"
Driver      "ati"
VendorName  "ATI Technologies Inc"
BoardName   "Rage 128 RE/SG"
BusID       "PCI:3:1:0"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier  "Card1"
Driver      "nv"
VendorName  "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName   "NV18GL [Quadro4 NVS AGP 8x]"
BusID       "PCI:9:0:0"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier     "X.org Configured"
Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
Screen      1  "Screen1" RightOf "Screen0"
InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

This is actually with s10_72, I'm downloading the release of 10 now
(very slowly).

thanks for any help/suggestions,
B

Not yet - it only has the "nv" open source driver, which doesn't support
dual head modes on a single card.  Only nVidia's propreitary driver can
do that and it's not yet available for Solaris x86.

1. Dual headed with Nvidia GeForce4 (MX420) AGP + Nvidia TNT2 PCI

Anyone have a dual headed configuration using the Nvidia GeForce4 AGP
and an Nvidia TNT2 PCI card they're willing to share? I'm running
Xfree 4.0. If I
could just get a copy of your XF86Config file I'd be very grateful.

Thanks,

James Kimble
