https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=271714 Bug ID: 271714 Summary: Inaccurate Instructions in XOrg Section for Some Nvidia Configurations Product: Documentation Version: Latest Hardware: amd64 OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Some People Priority: --- Component: Manual Pages Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: email@example.com CC: doc@FreeBSD.org Created attachment 242485 --> https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=242485&action=edit Working Xorg configuration for documentation edge case FreeBSD Version: 13.2-RELEASE Xorg Version: 7.7_3 Nvidia Driver: 470.161.03 Documentation Page: https://docs.freebsd.org/en/books/handbook/x11/ The issue with the documentation applies when the user has two graphics cards installed and one is a Nvidia graphics card. For example, if a user has a desktop computer having a motherboard with onboard video and installs a Nvidia card- this will result in the documentation being inaccurate. The xorg log complains that it cannot tell which of the graphics cards is the primary one, even with the busid added as indicated on the documentation page, and X fails to start stating (EE) No screems found. I got this working with the attached xorg configuration. # pciconf -lv|grep -B4 VGA vgapci0@pci0:3:0:0: class=0x030000 rev=0xa1 hdr=0x00 vendor=0x10de device=0x100a subvendor=0x3842 subdevice=0x2883 vendor = 'NVIDIA Corporation' device = 'GK110B [GeForce GTX 780 Ti]' class = display subclass = VGA -- vgapci1@pci0:1:1:0: class=0x030000 rev=0x10 hdr=0x00 vendor=0x1a03 device=0x2000 subvendor=0x1a03 subdevice=0x2000 vendor = 'ASPEED Technology, Inc.' device = 'ASPEED Graphics Family' class = display subclass = VGA -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
