Default Re: NVIDIA Dual Monitor Setup On Debian

Thanks,

Now I get the same resolution on both screens, but on 1024x768. My NVIDIA settings does not have an option to save the edid. I had a look for the read-edid utility, but that looks to be x86 only and I'm running x64 Debian.

I think there must be some kind of limitation on this card, as the second card is the same make/model, and that one does not detect the second screen via DVI on the second DVI port.
