Default Re: Second Monitor Fails in Dualhead Setup

Hi !
First of all you have to change the nv driver to the nvidia driver ...

Section "Device"

Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV38 [GeForce FX 5950 Ultra]"
Driver "nvidia"
...

.....
the second thing is that you should sort your xorg.conf ... it looks kind of wrong/ugly ...

Section "Device"

Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV38 [GeForce FX 5950 Ultra]"
Driver "nvidia"
# Option "NvAgp" "1"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
Option "NoPowerConnectorCheck"
EndSection

Section "Screen"

Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "NVIDIA Corporation NV38 [GeForce FX 5950 Ultra]"
Monitor "PHILIPS 109P"
DefaultDepth 24
Option "NoLogo" "true"

Option "MetaModes" "1600x1200, 1600x1200; 1280x1024, 1280x1024;
SubSection "Display"

Depth 1
Modes "1792x1344" "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
EndSubSection

But changing the driver to "nvidia" should actually solve the problem...
