I have a pre-production tesla installed in the first X16 slot and a geforce 8600GT in the 2nd x4 slot that i use for my video. I have the 8600 driver options set in xorg.conf for BusID “PCI:2:0:0”, my bios set to initialize PEG2 and my desktop works well. This is only a 256mb card so cuda does not use it since my desktops take up most of that. I do not have any device configuration in xorg.conf for the tesla on PCI:1:0:0.
When my machine starts from a power up, without X starting, the tesla gpu sets up at 599mhz and full speed fan. When X starts, it initializes the tesla, drops the fan back to 26% manual instead of auto and the gpu sets to 499mhz. the shaders and memory clocks all drop as well.
I want to make it so X when it starts does not touch the tesla at all in any way.
Are there any xorg options or nvidia driver options to accomplish this?
Is this possible? if so how?
my nvidia driver is version 180.60 and I am using Gentoo X86_64 o/s
Any help is greatly appreciated
