This page describes some of the issues I went thru while setting up my Dual GTS 8800 cards.
Operating system: Ubuntu 9.10 Driver version: Nvidia-Linux-x86_64-180.44 I was getting a kinit: No resume image, doing normal boot… after installing nvidia drivers. I have dual geForce 8800 GTS cards and the system was getting confused. I was able to fix the problem by specifying BusID in the xorg.conf file. see below for complete install instructions… make sure that the following modules are installed. sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname-r` Install the nvidia drivers by either going to System -> Administration -> hardware drivers or download them from the nvidia site and install them yourself. Reboot the system and it should come up using the new drivers. If it does not and if you have dual cards then you need to specify the primary. I have 2 GTS 8800 cards and after viewing the /var/log/messages I found out that they were on BusId “00:02:0″ and “00:03:0″
I modified the /etc/X11/xorg.conf and inserted BusID field seen below…
Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" Driver "nvidia" Option "NoLogo" "True" BusID "02:00:0" EndSection
#save and restart your computer and gdm should come up without problems.
my complete xorg.conf looks like this…
# xorg.conf (X.Org 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 xorg.conf manual page. # (Type "man 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. # # Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously # in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings # here are ignored. # # 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 Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Monitor "Configured Monitor" Device "Configured Video Device" DefaultDepth 24 EndSection Section "Module" Load "glx" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" Driver "nvidia" Option "NoLogo" "True" BusID "02:00:0" EndSection
Verify by going to nvidia-settings that you are running in SLI mode. If not then execute the following command.
sudo nvidia-xconfig –sli=AFR
The screens should look like this:
