Thought the list might be interested in how nouveau worked (or didn't) on my
system. I've heard that nouveau doesn't support SLI, but I thought I'll give
it a try.
Xorg -configure detects the the two cards separately and attempts to run Xorg
with the default configuration fails. After stripping any reference to the
second card (and screen, I only have one screen attached) Xorg worked fine and
KDE compositing (with Xrender) is smooth [much better than nv].
glxinfo reports direct rendering and glxgears give FPS of ~315. KDE desktop
effects does not work with OpenGL (and nouveau), is this expected to work?
Thank you for the hard work, I'm happily running nouveau on FreeBSD 8-pre
P.S. I'm happy to test any patches (including for SLI)
