dual video cards agp and pci in Ubuntu problems


Im using Ubuntu 6.06.1

I have a AGP Nvidia GeForce 4 MX/440 and a PCI S3 Trio 64V2 installed. When the computer boots all info shows on S3 Trio when gGDM loads the Nvidia card takes over and the S3 does nothing just blinks like it wants me to give it a command...

I'm not 100% sure that the VESA driver supports S3 Trio 64 but I have read that it does...on that note i have check and the driver is already installed as default with Ubuntu, does it come with dapper or do I have to install it myself? could XGL be effecting this?

Just before GDM shows on my Nvidia card my S3 flickers like it is trying to turn on but cant...I have checked my BIOS a half dozen times and cant find where to make PCI the default video card but it stands to reason that if it turns on first it must be default and its my Xorg thats the problem.

This is my moded Xorg.conf file:

Code:
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

i know you said you checked your bios 6 times but i would still look for a way there to make absolutely sure that your pci card is your primary video device. then go from there on. what kind of pc/bios do you have?

well i would say so, i am no expert but it looks in your x.org file that nvidia gets the default screen 0 and s3 gets screen 1, what if you swapped the two's positions in the file and then reboot? I don't know if it will work so back up your own first. here's a modified version of your x.org file:


Code:
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Im not crazy right this means the busID's are as fallows::

Nvidia - 1:0:0
S3 - 2:2:0

Code:
~$ lspci -x | grep VGA
0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 MX 440] (rev a3)
0000:02:02.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. 86c775/86c785 [Trio 64V2/DX or /GX] (rev 14)
My up to date xorg:

#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using

I noticed that your nvidia card does not get the nvidia driver anymore in your updated x.org file but the non proprietary 'nv' driver instead. not that it should make too much difference for what you want. then i see that it also says your nvidia card is on 'pci:1:0:0' i think that is ok because i just chacked my xorg.conf file and it is the same while it is really an agp card. confusing. like i said in the first message, i am no expert. i can't help you any further other than to give mepis a try as it has good facilities built in for this kind of configuration, but that is not really a helpful answer. the only experience i have with 2 and 3 three screens was under wxp for a client. good luck with it! ron
