Dual screens and opengl...
 
huhu

Ive set up a dual screen config but I have some problems...

1. Twinview, does it work with 2 cards? (8800GTX, 8500GTS),
now I use 'separate x-screens'.

2. When I start a OpenGL game (eg. TC:Elite) in full screen, second monitor shuts down (as it should) but my mouse goes mental and I cant use it (slides down to right corner). Have I missed an Option in xorg.conf??

3. Is there a way to compile 9755 on latest kernels? thats the only driver that doesnt give me signal 11 when playing TC:Elite (W:ET mod)

My corg.conf (think I need to post a nvidia error log to?)

Re: Dual screens and opengl...
 
Twinview is for use on a single card. You need to use seperate X screens + Xinerama but why are you using two cards? I'm not sure but I think that a single 8800 will be more efficient.
