[opensuse-factory] GeForce 8600 GT-all outputs disconnected in 12.1M3
This card has two external DVI ports. It may or may not have internal connectors for VGA output, but even if it does, I have nothing to connect them to.

The motherboard has one i915G video port, which the BIOS treats as non-existent due to the presence of the 8600 GT PCIe card.

Xorg.0.log claims there is VGA1 & VGA2 as well as DVI0 and DVI1. With no xorg.conf file, X works using nv driver, but stuck at 96 DPI.

When I try to use an xorg.conf file, copied from a different (11.4) system with onboard Intel video and a Radeon PCIe card, (edited from radeon driver to nv driver in 'Section "Device"') so as to customize DPI, X always fails to start. My last try used http://fm.no-ip.com/Tmp/Linux/Xorg/xorg.conf-nv-gx28b-all-outputs-disconnected and produced http://fm.no-ip.com/Tmp/Linux/Xorg/xorg.0.log-gx28b-nv-all-outputs-disconnected which reports all output ports as disconnected. Other editions of xorg.conf just produce other types of errors, like no device found or no screens with usable configuration. Can anyone see what it will take to fix this problem? Or is this just an Xorg/NV bug in Factory? I don't have this problem using ordinary onboard Intel video on other systems, and this dual DVI-only is the only recent NV chip gfxcard I have.

I tried booting using a DVI to VGA adapter. That only works until X starts. The screen blanks and the OS hard locks starting runlevel 5.
