http://askubuntu.com – I have a Alienware m9750 with dual 7950 gtx go's. I have Ubuntu 11.10 installed.. I installed the newest drivers, and had no issues with just installing the drivers... i went to terminal and did sudo nvidia-xconfig --sli=On reboot once doing this and reboot came... i saw the Nvidia logo splash screen (not sure if I was supposed to) then the system continually would try to load into ubuntu gui... and then just show some of the processes (text) and then just show nvidia splash screen and continually do this... never showing the GUI. I had to reinstall to get it working again. I tried to boot (HowTos)
