3 Monitors
 
I am trying to add the 3rd DFP to a TwinView setup using Xinerama. The goal is set a uniform screen across all three DFPs. I have 2 Nvidia cards: one is Quadro FX 1000 (the TwinView runs on 2 DFPs); another GeForce FX 5200 connected to the 3rd DFP. The OS is RHEL3. startx only displays the window on the TwinView DFPs. The 3rd DFP gets a blue screen after flipfloping a few time as NVIDIA log comes up. See below for my XF86Config. What am I missing?

Re: 3 Monitors
 
You cannot use twinview across 2 boards and so you cannot have a twinview setup with 3 monitors. You will have to use xinerama instead.
