order of devices in TwinView
I have a GeForce Ti 4200/128. On the VGA port I have a good monitor; on another machine nearby I have a old ratty monitor which I occasionally want to use with TwinView.

If I stick the following into my XF86Config:
Option "TwinView"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-57"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "43-72"
Option "MetaModes" "1600x1200, 1024x768"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, CRT"

everything basically works fine EXCEPT that it treats the good monitor (on VGA port) as the second monitor and the poor one (on DVI port with adaptor) as the first. (The old one can't display 1600x1200, of course.) If I swap the order of the cables coming out of the card, things are OK. I guess they would also work if I changed round the order of primary and secondary monitors. But surely there must be a way of configuring the driver to treat the VGA port as primary (device 0) and the DVI as secondary (device 1)? Anyone know what it is?

I think that there is no such functionality built into drivers, but it should be implemented. I have problems with system dualbooting between Windows and Linux. Primary display is different between those operating systems and it is quite annoying. I hope that fix for this problem is coming...

Unfortunately this is a known driver bug. I would send a bugreport to linux-bugs@nvidia.com.
