Configuring twinview on Red Hat 9.0
 
I've got a GeForce FX 5200 that I'm trying to configure twinveiw on Red Hat 9.0. I've configured the XF86Config with what I thought was correct settings but no go.

With the default install Red Hat uses the vesa driver that was set to mirrored mode.... after I downloaded and intalled the nvidia driver the driver defualted to one monitor and even after enabling twinview the screen just stays at the one monitor... no mirrored mode... etc

search this forum, there are a lot of answers for this.

you can all do this by playing with the nvidia driver options in the x11 config file.

I found that my card will do twinview in Windows XP but not in Linux. I bought a second nvidia card (pci geforce 4 MX) and now my system does twinview just fine.... so it's not the system... there is something strange with the card. I had an FX 5600XT that would do twinview just fine with the exact settings I used for he FX 5200. That's how I'm sure it's an issue wit my card.

I also sent something in to nvidia on this as a bug report. I've got an FX5200 128Mb from PNY.
