  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Unable to Activate SLI

Hi all,

I have an Alienware MX18 R2 with GTX 880M x2 and I'm unable to activate SLI.
With windows I never had issue before, so I guess it's only a configuration issue. Unfortunately It still doesn't work.

So I take a look on google and I discover I should use something like:
nvidia-xconfig --only-one-x-screen  --busid=PCI:1:0:0 --sli=AA
But not really convincing ...
Thank you for your help.

Considering how poorly Nvidia supports linux in general, it wouldn't surprise me that SLI isn't even supported properly on linux, have you done your research beforehand to make sure that they support SLI on linux?
