SLED 10 : Configuring a secondary video card as the primary video card
This document (3522835) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
ERROR: Sax: ups lost card during probingThis is often seen when attempting to specify a driver for the secondary card, as done by :
sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia
sax2 -pThis will print a list of the cards, the detected chip sets, as well as an ID number for each card. Then, rerun sax specifying the card and the driver :
init 3 sax2 -c [card index] [card index]=[card driver]For an example, on some systems that include a secondary NVidia card, the sax2 configuration line would appear like :
sax2 -c 1 1=nvidiaThis will force Sax to reattempt configuration using the #1 card in the sax2 -p output, and force it to use the nvidia driver (override detection).
