quadro4 nvs 400 question.
 
I recently purchased this card, and the dual DVI cable connectors (to support 4 displays). I am running this to 3 Viewsonic VP191b LCD displays.

The OS is RHAS 3.0 WS, (up2dated'd) and the intention is it have the 3 displays side by side.. After trying the twinview method, I cannot get the 2nd and 3rd screen to display properly.

I have seen threads here re: issues w/ running these connectors.

Any thoughts?

Finally got mine to work.

First of all, I could not use the SMP kernel out of Redhat WS 3.0. Used the UP kernel. SMP will lock and crash every time.

Second, you have to make sure that you address both cards in the startup.

Here is my XF86Config file:

# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
