I know this isn't proboly the place to be asking computer questions, but its worth a shot....



So I'm stepping back into the linux world... trying to dust off my Bash command skills.. for work

Got Fedora 10 installed on its own drive.. Gnome loads up with no problem.. until I install the nVidia drivers for my (2) 7600Gt's... x won't even think about loading after that.. I've modified the xorg.conf to be pointed to the current driver dir... 180.22 is the version i'm running.. with kernel 2.29 i think?

HELP!!!

The new default kernel doesn't fall back to selecting a correct PCI device for X86 if there are 2 or more active vid PCI devices with the nvidia binary drivers. Modify your x.org.conf so you have 2 BusID settings, something liek the below:

#

Section "Device"
Identifier "radeon0"
Driver "ati"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
Screen 0
EndSection

Section "Device"

EndSection

Now that you have one display up, open a terminal and: sudo nvidia-settings

It'll open the nVidia display settings tool where you can fine tune your config and enable the second monitor and write the changes to your xorg.conf.

irrelevent to what? He posted in General Chaos. Nothing is relevant to anything here, hence the title. I say good for him in finding some help.
