SLI not working: Trouble accessing PCI Config Space


i have problems configuring two GTX 670 in SLI mode.

I am using a gentoo linux, nvidia drivers version 325.15 (I tried to use newer version too).

Xorg logs reports:

Can someone help me?

I have not hardware problems, under win8 the SLI works.

Thanks for the attention, sorry for the bad english.

Is this issue specific to your motherboards ? Did you tested same GPU with another motherboard and Linux OS?

Thanks for the reply.

I don’t know if is specific to my motherboard, but under windows
OS the SLI works.

I have not tested with other motherboard, only this one, is a
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H, chipset Z77.

Solved downgrading the nvidia drivers to version 319.76

Thanks moonchild_it testing. We are tracking this issue under 1426714

This issue got fixed with our latest driver that will be available soon …

Isn`t sli useless on linux anyway or does the next driver include a bunch of sli profiles for games?

Im having the same problem with an almost identical setup currently running Linux mint, any driver version after 319 will not run sli, have tried multiple distributions from Arch to Ubuntu. When could we expect the next driver release?
