dual head radeon pci + geforce2 agp
 
hi,

i'm trying to get my dual monitor setup to work. when i startx, only the screen associated with radeon is working. the 2nd screen, supposed to be run by geforce2, is all black.

the message on the terminal that comes out when i log out is
something like

nv could not find match for instance PCI 1:5:0
screen1 deleted, no matching device found

i ran both scanpci and lspci, and my geforce2 did register as PCI 1:5:0.

my PCI card is running as primary, and AGP as secondary. i actually tried reversing the order but it still gave the same msg.

here are the important sections of my XF86Config file

I have never run a multi-head setup so I cannot answer that portion of your question, BUT you are not useing the nvidia provided drivers. You XF86Config file still references nv, this should be changed to nvidia (after you download and install the drivers).
Please update your config, then retry and then repost.
