Re: Xorgs nv driver on AMD64
This was from an email I got - and of the various places to go and ask about configuring Xorg with nv, this seemed to be one of the places where I might find success.
I am lead to believe that what I seek is able to be done, I am just not sure how.
Recent versions of the nv driver support dual head mode with RandR 1.2 for
chips based on G80 and higher. For earlier chips (such as the Quadro FX
560), it supports a simple dual head mode with several restrictions:
- The resolutions available are somewhat limited.
- Both heads run at the same resolution.
- The screens are always side-by-side.
More advanced dual head support for pre-G80 chips is outside the scope of
the nv driver.
