Hey everyone,

I'm trying to get NetBSD to use two vga devices, but it doesn't seem to
like the idea. I have the following line in my kernel conf:

vga*		at pci? dev ? function ?

To me, this would seem to be sufficient to find all connected vga devices, 
but this is all I get in dmesg:

NetBSD 1.6U (STARMAIDEN-$Revision: 0.2 $) #3: Sun Jul 27 17:24:22 MST 2003
pchb0 at pci0 dev 0 function 0
pchb0: VIA Technologies VT8377 Apollo KT400 CPU to PCI Bridge (rev. 0x00)
agp0 at pchb0: aperture at 0xf0000000, size 0x10000000
ppb0 at pci0 dev 1 function 0: VIA Technologies VT8377 CPU-AGP Bridge (rev. 0x00)
pci1 at ppb0 bus 1
pci1: i/o space, memory space enabled
vga0 at pci1 dev 0 function 0: ATI Technologies Radeon 7500 (rev. 0x00)
wsdisplay0 at vga0 kbdmux 1: console (80x25, vt100 emulation)
wsmux1: connecting to wsdisplay0
ATI Technologies Rage XL (VGA display, revision 0x27) at pci0 dev 13 function 0 not configured

Any ideas?
