TwinView trouble
A couple of screenshots:

I've got the 4496 of the nVidia driver installed on my SuSE 9 box. Tux Racer runs fine ;), but when I try to set up TwinView to my TV (with SaX2 - I tried earlier to go to XF86Config myself but that was a disaster), I get the error message shown in the second screen shot:

(WW) NVIDIA: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:0) found
(EE)Screen 0 deleted because of no matching config section.

I never was quite sure about what to select for BusID. If I select ScreenID 0 I don't get an error message nor an image on my TV. On W2K TwinView works fine.

Any help or attempt to help will be appreciated =)

Modify /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, you must substitute 1024x768 with 1280x1024 if your resolution is 1280x1024.

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce2 DDR (generic)"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "DPMS"
Option "TwinView" "True"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768,640x480; 640x480,640x480"

Note that if you use (Mandrake 9.1 XFree4.3). You cannot switch to 640x480 by pressing control-alt-+.
It's a bug in XFree86 4.3

Thanks (=.

So this is your configuration? It's muchly the same as mine, so do you have an idea about what's wrong with mine? Is the generic driver better somehow? I wouldn't like to risk hand-editing XF86Config unless sure.

BTW, what is that DPMS option, didn't see it in the nvidia documentation.

problem 1: missing quote
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT

problem 2: tvstandard is not defined
Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"

Thanks! (=

It works.

I guess I'm going to let that SaX2 just lie in its own stools.
