    Adding a "tag" to xorg.conf?


    Hi guys,
    I just installed some shiny new beta drivers from NVidia, and I want to enable SLi. From what I hear, I have to add a "tag" to xorg.conf to make it work. This tag is supposedly "--sli=". How would I do this? I know how to open it in KWrite as root, blah blah blah. I just don't know what exactly to type in the file.

    Also, if I'm going about this the complete wrong way, please tell me.

    Mike

    I wasn't aware you had to do anything special to get SLI to work. The drivers have claimed SLI support for several versions now. Where are you getting your instructions? Also, I wasn't aware Nvidia had any "beta" drivers for Linux. Can you give me a link to those as well? I generally download my drivers from their main site, here:

    I say they are beta because when the NVidia splash comes up on startup, there is now a red beta sign in the lower left quadrant.

    I got it from the site you linked to.

    If SLi is working, how can i confirm that its working? I would like to be able to see some evidence that both cards are working.

    That's...odd. I haven't installed their drivers in about a month. Perhaps it's a new thing.

    That's a good question, and I really don't know what to tell you. You might be able to find something out using glxgears and glxinfo.
